Update: How to Use RSR

The changes are highlighted below.

Once a month, on the 15th, this blog will post groups of rated stories. Casual SF fans with only a few hours free can (1) use our rating, time estimate and blurb to select a few stories to read; (2) click the Obtain Issue link to access, borrow, or purchase individual back issues with the stories; (3) read the stories in an app, browser, or print; (4) click the Other Reviews link to see what other people think; then (5) click the RSR Review & Discussion link to discuss the stories.

Once a month, on the 30th, this blog will update the rated stories to identify the ones Recommended by other reviewers. Use it to choose additional stories to read.

Once a year, at the start of the Hugo Award nomination period, this blog will post a "stack rank" of rated stories by category. The top-rated stories from the past year's monthly posts will be compared with each other to ensure a consistent quality bar month-over-month, and then compared with the top-rated stories from previous years' stack ranks to ensure a consistent quality bar year-over-year. Use it as a guide to find, read, and nominate stories for Hugo Awards.
