Once a year, at the start of the Hugo Award nomination period, this blog will post a "stack rank" of rated stories by category, annotated lists for the Locus Magazine recommendations and Nebula Award nominees, an analysis of short-form editors, exhibits of select professional artists, and a list of Campbell Award-eligible writers whose stories we reviewed. Use them as guides to find, read, and nominate stories, editors, artists, and writers for the Hugo Awards.
If you're new to the blog, you can catch up on the year's 5- and 4-star stories and recommendations by other reviewers in the Year-To-Date page.
Note: Authors eligible for the Campbell Award are identified with a 1 or 2 superscript for their year.
