Found a copy of BASS 2007 this afternoon. The 20 stories are an interesting mix of solidly old school (Louis Auchincloss, John Barth, Ann Beattie, T.C. Boyle, Mary Gordon, Alice Munro, Richard Russo, and Jim Shepard) as well as relative newcomers (Randy DeVita, Lauren Groff, Beverly Jensen, Roy Kesey, Stellar Kim, Aryn Kyle, and Karen Russell) and those that, to me at least, fall in between (Joseph Epstein, William Gay, Bruce McAllister, Eileen Pollack, and Kate Walbert).
Ploughshares is the magazine with the most stories of this 20, with a trio. Add the additional two stories they had in the "100 Other Distinguished Stories of 2006", and they were one of the most decorated literary journals this year by BASS.
The big winner is Glimmer Train with ten of the hundred stories listed in the back of the volume. Some others heavily picked through include:
New Yorker with one top twenty and seven from the hundred, The Sun, Virginia Quarterly Review, and Oxford American with five of the hundred apiece, Fantasy & Science Fiction with one top twenty and four of the hundred, and the Atlantic Monthly was the only other journal with more than one in the top twenty, with a duo, to go with their two stories in the hundred. Another twenty literay journals had more than one story included in the 120 stories including EWN favorites Small Spiral Notebook, Kenyon Review. One Story, and Zoetrope.
EWN'ers included in the top twenty? Randy DeVita, William Gay, Lauren Groff, Roy Kesey, and Eileen Pollack. Those in the hundred include: Steve Almond, Pinckney Benedict, Matt Cheney, Charles D'Ambrosio, Jan Ellison, Aaron Gwyn, Alyson Hagy, Ann Harleman, Don Lee, Kelly Link, John McNally, Manuel Munoz, Jason Ockert, Andrew Porter, Ron Rash, Christopher Rowe, Scott Snyder (with two), Jim Tomlinson, and Paul Yoon (about three of these folks are honorary EWN'ers and not official members, but have been reviewed here substantially enough for me to consider them).
