Last Short Story Numbers

And because some people like stats.

Of the 1900 odd short stories I've read this year so far, I will be blogging about 107 of them. Of these:
85 received a ranking of 4 (worth reading)
16 will be on my honourable mentions list with a ranking of 4.5
6 will be on my Years Best list with a ranking of 5

Ta.

My own lists are a hodgepodge of stuff from however many decades.

Useful to see one year's worth.

Or ballpark rounded numbers there:

5.0 is 300/1+
4.5 is 100/1+
4 is 20/1+

Which is vaguely like what I was wondering about for the Australian subset.

Yeah, on your sample weighting there, if there were 300 oz stories, given those are a bit less good on average, then
1 and 0 would be the 'most likely' numbers for 5's, assuming a standard story reader, if there is such an animal. :)
