Pushcart Prize List (2001-2007)


Several months ago I did an analysis of the Pushcart Prizes for Fiction, for 2001-2006. Many people told me how interesting the results were, so when the new volume arrived today, I quickly added its contents to my database to produce a new list--one that doesn't appear to very different from the old one. As before, the ranking is based on a formula, with points awarded for Prizes (5) and Special Mentions (1). To give an idea of the range, I've included the point totals.

You're welcome. Sorry it's only for fiction. Somebody--probably not me--should do the same for poetry and nonfiction.
