“Best of the Net” is an online anthology that seeks to compile the best work that has been published in online literary journals each year. As they say on their website: “This project works to promote the diverse and growing collection of voices that are choosing to publish their work online, a venue that still sees little respect from such yearly anthologies as the Pushcart and ‘Best American’ series. This collection will hopefully help to bring more respect to an innovative and continually expanding medium.”

HFR is very pleased to announce that three people affiliated with our journal have been selected as finalists!

* HFR associate editor Allyson Boggess -- "Citrus" from Eight Octaves Review

* HFR advisory board member Alberto Alvaro Rios -- "Arizona, The Sun, And What That's Like" from Narrative

* HFR Issue #42 contributor Sandra Beasley -- "Heretic" from Drunken Boat
