The Order of the Hot Potato

And now, since “Bewildering” Stories is a friend of the unconventional, here are the ten most controversial works of the quarter, the ones on which the Review Editors’ consensus diverged for one reason or another. Two of the titles on the list also qualify as Editors’ Choices.

In keeping with the overall high quality of the third quarter, the Review Board’s consensus was remarkably consistent. The titles are listed in descending order with the most controversial first. Only the first title on the list is a true Hot Potato; the others qualify as Warm Potatoes.

  1. Peter Cawdron, Little Green Men
  2. David Pilling, Shunned
  3. Pavelle Wesser, Losing Touch
  4. John Grey, Woman in Chair
  5. Larry A. Kayser, Just Imagine
  6. Diana Pollin, Night Shift
  7. Adelaide B. Shaw, Carmody
  8. Noel Denvir, Sunday Girl
  9. Karlos Allen, But What I Really Wanted
  10. Mel Waldman, The First Death
