We mark a season of holidays with this unnumbered issue. It brings you the editors’ favorites from the first half of Bewildering Stories’ fourth year of publication. New readers will have a sample of what Bewildering Stories has been doing, and veteran readers will have the chance to catch up on anything they may have missed. We’ll resume regular publication with issue 179 on January 2, 2006.
This two-page Retrospective is a first for Bewildering Stories. It may seem long, and we are thinking of issuing quarterly Retrospectives. However, the selections in the short stories and longer represent about 30 percent of the total in those categories in the 25 issues covered. The editors feel that everything here belongs here, and we hope you’ll enjoy it as much as we have!
Flash Fiction, Poetry, The Art Gallery, Essays, Interviews, The Critics’ Corner, Editorials, and Challenges
are on page 2.
Everything in green is a link. Lists proceed alphabetically by author and chronologically by title.
All serialized works must have concluded at some point in issues 151-175 in order to qualify. Any that concluded later or still have a conclusion pending may be eligible for future anthologies. Novels link to the table of contents in the authors’ bibliographies; everything else links to the first installment.
