This is the fourth annual edition of the Long List Anthology. Every year, supporting members of WorldCon nominate their favorite stories first published during the previous year to determine the top five in each category for the final Hugo Award ballot. This is an anthology collecting more of the stories from that nomination list to get them to more readers.

The Long List Anthology Volume 4 collects 15 science fiction, fantasy, and horror stories from that nomination list, totaling over 300 pages of fiction by writers from all corners of the world. From utopian science fiction to dystopian horror, from a society based entirely on personal upvotes/downvotes to one where one's status is defined by enchanted gloves, from a kickass blockade-running spaceship pilot to an artist who can twist the world with his perspective.  There is a wide variety of styles and types of stories here, and something for everyone.
