Annual Review, 2017
Year 16 of Bewildering Stories
The Mariner Awards: issues 696-742
The launch of Mariner 2
to Venus, August 27, 1962
The Mariner Awards are named for one of the first successful interplanetary missions.
The 51 titles listed — out of 340 for the year — are the ones that the Review Board has rated most highly in 2017. They have earned Bewildering Stories’ most signal honor.
We know that all readers can cite other titles they feel belong on these lists; fair enough. Please write and tell us what else you would include and, most importantly, why. Discussions are welcome at Bewildering Stories.
Like the Quarterly Reviews, the Annual Review lists titles alphabetically by author and multiple titles in chronological order. The year was enlivened by thoughtful discussions. However, the Departments remain in the Quarterly Reviews and are easily accessible.
We resume regular publication with issue 743 on January 1, 2018. Meanwhile, as we like to say, “There is no story so truly bewildering as reality.” The Crew of Bewildering Stories wishes our contributors and readers a most pleasantly Bewildering New Year!
Everything in green is a link. Links open in a new window, so you won’t lose your place.
