Bewildering Stories
First Quarterly Review, 2008

Editors’ Choices: issues 273-283

Everything in green is a link.
All name and title links open in a new window, so you won’t lose your place.

It’s almost one of our unofficial mottoes that the Quarterly Reviews are “the place to be” at Bewildering Stories. They bring you the editors’ favorites from the past three months. New readers will have easy access to the recent best of Bewildering Stories, and veteran readers will have a chance to catch up on anything they may have missed.

No genre has a quota; everything or nothing might qualify for a Quarterly Review. But as we like to say, “There is no story so truly Bewildering as reality,” and reality falls mostly between extremes.

The review editors have long been distinguished in Internet publishing for their prompt and outstanding work in evaluating and proofreading submissions and in making the selections for the Quarterly Reviews. As always, the discussions have been extensive, lively and insightful. A big Thank You to Agnes Blom, Bill Bowler, Bertil Falk, Gary Inbinder, R D Larson, Michael E. Lloyd, Sheila M. Murdock, Carmen Ruggero, and Lewayne L. White.

We also express our gratitude to our Associate Editors. Their insightful and detailed critiques of submissions help us set what we like to think is a standard for editorial practice: a fast turnaround time that is, above all, fair.

Finally and foremost we congratulate the authors represented here. They and their works have well earned the honor. We hope they will inspire all our contributors.

We’ll resume regular publication with issue 284 on April 7, 2008.
