Second Quarterly Review, 2013
The Editors’ Choices: issues 519-530
“The place to be at Bewildering Stories”
Everything in green is a link.
Bewildering Stories ends the season — spring or fall, depending on your hemisphere — with the Review Editors’ selection of favorites from the Second Quarter of 2013. 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 not a contest, competition or poll. And there are no quotas: anything — from everything to nothing — may qualify in any genre. Rather, they answer a practical question: “If a friend asked you to recommend something extra-special from the past quarter of Bewildering Stories, what would you choose?” These are our recommendations.
As always, the Review Board’s discussions have been extensive and lively. A big Thank You to Bill Bowler, Gary Inbinder, Maria Kontak, Michael E. Lloyd, Johanna Miklós, Marina J. Neary, Carmen Ruggero, John Stocks and Lewayne L. White.
We also express special 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 an Internet standard for editorial practice and for service to our contributors and readers.
Reminder: everything in green is a link.
The following table also serves as a linked index to all the genres and sections in the Review.
