Readings in Science Fiction.
currently and for the foreseeable future organized by year, one straight
html file per year, listing stories, plus any comments I might have had on
The comments are not meant to be reviews, or even very helpful to others,
they are simply quick notes I took down after reading the stories in order
to keep track of them. The numerical ratings
run from 1 to 5, with a score
of 3 indicating a story I found, for some reason, worth reading - not,
perhaps, seeking out, but a good use of your time. Most of the stories
I've come across are around a 3 - editors seem to have, over time,
understood what I like, and bought mostly that. Good job they did, or I'd
be less pleased by their work, and then where would they be? Scores of 4
or 5 indicate stories to be sought out, and 1 and 2 indicate stories I
recommend you simply pass over without sparing even a moment of your
precious time on them.
