2018 Reading List

Everything I read in 2018, with 2018-published works separated out and bolded if I\’m considering nominating them for Hugos.  See 2017, 2016, and 2015 lists.  (As usual, there are plenty of works that I enjoyed quite a bit but am unlikely to nominate; don\’t take the lack of bolding as an indication that I didn\’t like it!)
