This second volume of The Long List Anthology is designed to recognize the short works that were nominated for the 2016 Hugo Awards but did not make it into the top five short list for the final ballot. Thus, voted into the Hugo Award's long list of works - the top 15 works nominated for each category - were these short stories and novelettes, now made available to a wider audience by award-winning narrators.
Included in this volume are:
- "Our Lady of the Open Road" by Sarah Pinsker, read by Gabrielle de Cuir
- "Today I Am Paul" by Martin L. Shoemaker, read by Stefan Rudnicki
- "Madeleine" by Amal El-Mohtar, read by Paul Boehmer
- "Damage" by David D. Levine, read by Claire Benedek
- "Pocosin" by Ursula Vernon, read by Stefan Rudnicki
- "Grandmother-nai-Leylit's Cloth of Winds" by Rose Lemberg, read by Gabrielle de Cuir
