Product Description

The color Kindle edition of Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine is now available on the Kindle Reading App for your Android device. Download issues at no extra cost from Archived Items.

For over fifty years, Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine has been one of the foremost publishers of mystery, crime, and suspense short stories. AHMM each month publishes mystery fiction of the broadest range and the highest quality, featuring every subgenre of mystery fiction. "The lack of a specific house style," says Kirkus Reviews, "is its greatest strength." Stories featured in AHMM have won dozens of awards, including many Robert L. Fish awards for Best First Mystery Short Story of the year. Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine is home to many bestselling authors, including Martin Limon, Jane K. Cleland, Loren Estleman, Rhys Bowen, and Kristine Kathryn Rusch.

The Kindle Edition of Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine contains most articles found in the print edition, but will not include all images. For your convenience, issues are auto-delivered wirelessly to your Kindle at the same time the print edition hits the newsstand. The digital subscription consists of one issue each month. January/February and July/August are double issues.

4.0 out of 5 stars A hassle-free fix of mystery fic 29 Oct 2013
I grew up reading paperback best-of anthologies of stories from AHMM and its sister publication, Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine. For the price of a latte I can now get my fix of crime and suspense delivered promptly. If you've never tried the magazine before then the free thirty day subscription is a good place to start.

I've enjoyed reading this, but since my account was switched over to the UK I am now having to pay 50% more than when I was getting it from the US. That's an absolute rip-off on a digital product.

Why do Amazon, and other US companies, think it is okay to rip off UK users. It has been going on for so long that people just think it is normal, but the reality is it is pure profiteering!

Shame on you Amazon, and shame on you Ellery Queen for allowing such price disparity for your readers.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a superbly put together fiction magazine! 17 Sep 2008
By Amazon Customer - Published on
I had never read this magazine before subscribing to it on my Kindle; I am a big fan now! The diversity and quality of the writing has never disappointed, and I thoroughly enjoy the different mystery genres featured. Good writing should always be rewarded and I think the electronic subscription price is very fair; the magazine is definitely worth it. I expect to be a subscriber for a long time.

2.0 out of 5 stars Costs more, quality poor 30 Nov 2009
By Kent Forschmiedt - Published on
I have enjoyed Hitchcock and Ellery Queen for many years. The Kindle editions are crude renditions of these high quality publications. The transcriptions are filled with errors, especially replicated lines of text or odd insertions of text as a result of typesetting or scanning artifacts. The magazines include some illustrations, and since the originals are newsprint the monochrome pictures should be beautifully rendered on Kindle. Instead, they are often poorly scaled and blurry or blotchy. Sometimes, a JPEG filename appears instead of the picture.

A little proofreading would go a long way. I have canceled my subscriptions.

3.0 out of 5 stars Why is electronic more expensive than print? 24 Oct 2008
By Avid Reader - Published on
I was given some old copies of this magazine and really enjoyed reading it. I have been considering buying a Kindle and wanted to see what was offered, besides the books. I checked out the subscription price of the print version and was surprised to find that the electronic was more expensive by $.50 an issue. Shouldn't electronic delivery be cheaper than print?

I was taking a trip down memory lane and looking at my old reviews and was amazed that a review I wrote in 2008 still gets comments in 2014. I would like to direct a comment to DolphinBlue. Your logic supports a high cost for the Kindle (ability to carry a large amount of content) but not the actual content. The publisher's should be fighting to be included on our electronic media devices and supply and demand requires that they make their product as appealing as possible and part of that appeal is price.

I still don't own an electronic reader (and frequently regret it when I am carrying around a 5-pound hardcover I bought at a used book sale) so I was unaware of the lack of advertising in electronic magazine content. That does seem to be a valid reason for a higher up front cost.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great price, even Greater Value 16 July 2008
By Toe Hallock - Published on
Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine is, without a doubt, one of the best venues of fiction there is. Great writing by terrific authors. And I really cannot believe that anyone would complain about the cost. This is a literary bargain!

5.0 out of 5 stars IT'S NOT WORTH MISSING... 31 Dec 2010
By C. Miller - Published on
...out on the truly wonderful fiction this magazine has to offer, at least not for 50 cents. Touching, spine-tingling, sentimental, even laugh-out-loud funny by turns, the stories have something for everyone. Those who wish to haggle over a couple of quarters can have at it. As for me, I'm gonna snuggle under the covers, dive into the tales, and hope I remember to close the Kindle before the sun comes up. ~xtina
