We describe the construction of linearly implicit two-step W-methods of high stage order and desirable stability properties for the numerical solution of stiff differential systems. The presented methods are demonstrated to be A- and L-stable when the stepsize is held constant. They also preserve good stability properties in a variable stepsize environment under quite demanding conditions imposed on the stepsize pattern.
