Rising Above the Rest

I've been looking at the stories that the Electric Spec editors have held for voting. This is one of my favorite parts of the job because all of the stories have something that caught an editor's eye. Now we begin culling the best of the best.

Why are these stories so good? The truth is, there's no easy answer. All of the stories have solid writing. Beyond that, they have something extra like a great plot idea, interesting world, or unique characters. Some are stronger in one area than another. It's the stories that have the most going for them that end up making the final cut.
