Best of the Net is an annual anthology published by Sundress Publications. The series arose from the need to promote the diverse and growing collection of voices who are publishing their work online—a venue that "continues to see less respect from such yearly anthologies as the Pushcart and Best American series"—and to "bring greater respect to an innovative and continually expanding medium in the same medium in which it is published" (Sundress Publications).
We're honored to have had the privilege of publishing these pieces during Season 5 of Peach, and wish our nominees the best of luck!
