World Hum Writers Honored in ‘The Best American Travel Writing 2012’

Travel Blog  •  Eva Holland  •  10.09.12 | 7:37 AM ET

The newest edition of the annual The Best American Travel Writing anthology was released last week (though I’m still eagerly awaiting my copy way up here in the Yukon Territory). This time around, it was guest edited by William T. Vollmann, and three World Hum stories were included in the notable selections: Our Own Apocalypse Now, by Haley Sweetland Edwards; David Farley’s Bad “Carma”; and Greek Paradise, Lost, by Dan Saltzstein.

Several World Hum contributors, writing elsewhere, were also honored in this year’s collection: Tom Swick had a story included, while Leigh Ann Henion, Pico Iyer, Daisann McLane and Tony Perrottet were among the notable selections. Congrats, all.


Eva Holland is co-editor of World Hum. She is a former associate editor at Up Here and Up Here Business magazines, and a contributor to Vela. She's based in Canada's Yukon territory.

I’ve been reading this series since it came out, and have enjoyed the whirlwind travel experience around the world it gives me every year. Yet, I agree with Katie that it’s hit and miss. I don’t have much interest in bats in Suriname or giant cruise ships, though those pieces were mildly interesting. Most of the best pieces—on Siberia and real estate in Florida—I’d already read in their original publications.
