Favorite Jan 2019 DSF story: "The Spider's Garden" by Jamie Lackey
Favorite Jan 2019 EDF story (see note 2): "This is What I Know" by Haley Biermann
Favorite Jan 2019 Nature "Futures" story: "Cold Memories" by Laurence Raphael Brothers

My blog post about my 4 favorite stories read in January 2019 is here: http://amysreviews.blogspot.com/2019/02/short-fiction-read-in-january-2019.html

Note 1: I obtain each story's word count in one of these ways: 1) I go by the publisher's stated word count; 2) I copy and paste the text into Word and run the word count function; or 3) I estimate the word count, (usually for print books) by counting the words on two randomly chosen sample pages in the book and applying their average to the story's page count.

Note 2: Because there are so many stories published by DSF and EDF, there are always likely to be ties for my highest rated stories. (I use LibraryThing's 0-5 stars scale, which allows half-stars as well.) So my entirely subjective way of choosing one favorite is to look back at my notes for all the tied stories, and decide which of the stories I would most like to re-read.
