Bewildering Stories’ Second Quarterly Review, 2008
The Editors’ Choices: issues 284-296
“The place to be at Bewildering Stories”
Everything in green is a link.
All name and title links open in a new window, so you won’t lose your place.
Bewildering Stories celebrates its 6th anniversary and begins Year 7 with the Review Editors’ selection of favorites from the second quarter of 2008. 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.
The Quarterly Reviews are Bewildering Stories’ honor roll, but they’re not a contest or competition in the strict sense of the term. There are no quotas: everything or nothing might qualify for a Quarterly Review. The Review Editors vote according to their estimate of each work’s success on its own terms.
As always, the Review Board’s discussions have been extensive, lively and insightful. A big Thank You to Agnes Blom, Bill Bowler, Fiona Davis, 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 Coordinating Editor Bill Bowler and the Associate Editors. Their insightful and detailed critiques of submissions help us set what we like to think is a standard for editorial practice and for service to our contributors and readers.
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 297 on July 14, 2008.
