The James White Award is pleased to be able to announce the longlisted stories for this year’s award. These are:

Authors of other submissions can consider their stories released.
We hope to announce the shortlist within two weeks and the winner shortly afterwards.
Note that, at this stage, the stories are still being judged using our anonymous system, hence no authors’ names can be included at this time.
The award administrator, Martin McGrath, apologised to the delays in this year’s competition: “We know it is frustrating for authors who are waiting for a response and we’re taking steps to ensure that this doesn’t happen again in future. We will be announcing changes to the competition’s timing for future competitions before opening for next year’s submissions. Thank you for sticking with us.”
