2018 YTD

The stories here are considered the year's best SF/F because they have been recommended by one or more prolific reviewersπŸ‘, included in a "year's best" anthologyπŸ“™, or are finalists for one or more awardsπŸ†. Each story shows a "Recommended By" list where a score is tallied from the +2, +1 or +0 after each recommendation.

This page starts as the "Year-To-Date" list and is updated the first of each month with recommendations from prolific reviewers. After a year, it becomes the "Hugo Awards" list and is updated through the Hugo nomination period with "year's best" anthologies and award finalists such as the Nebulas. When Hugo nominations close, it becomes the "Best SF/F" list and is updated with later awards like the Eugie and Sturgeon as well as the Best American Science Fiction & Fantasy anthology.

1. Year-To-Date


RSR's tables are now dynamic, meaning you can change the way the stories are ordered, and also highlight different types of stories. For example, click this link πŸŒ€Publication & Score to regroup stories from categories to magazines. Click these links to highlight stories that are πŸ“–free online, by ✍new writers (Campbell Award-eligible), and 🌐translations.

You can also flag and rate stories to track your reading progress over weeks and months and end up with a shortlist of candidates in the ⚑★My Ratings page at the end of the year to nominate for the Hugo, Locus, Nebula, and various magazine-specific awards.

When you're ready to try the new features, expand the Dynamic Table Features help box below for further details, and expand the gray Command Box pinned to the bottom of the window to access all the new functionality.
