The Order of the Hot Potato

And now, since “Bewildering” Stories is a friend of the unconventional, here are the eight most controversial works of the quarter, the ones on which the Review Editors did not reach a consensus for one reason or another. The titles are listed in descending order with the most controversial first.

  1. R D Larson, Summahtime Woes
  2. Bob Brill, Surviving Flight 1432
  3. Rebecca Lu Kiernan, Snowball Effect
  4. Ryan J. Southworth, The Oasis
  5. Marina J. Neary, Girl With a Rusty Wagon

In keeping with the overall high quality of the first quarter, the Review Board’s consensus was remarkably consistent. We round out the list with the top tier of the unofficial “winners,” namely the Warm Potatoes:

  1. Jannette Johnson, Echoes of Deception
  2. Will Gray, I’m Just a Villain
  3. John Stocks, Plath

The Hottest-Potato Issues of the Quarter

As a special treat, Bewildering Stories links to
the three most controversial issues of the quarter:

  1. The Öort Cloud
  2. The Kuiper Belt
  3. The Asteroid Belt
