5.0 out of 5 stars Great mag. Great price. 18 Oct. 2010
This is an unexpected bonus of owning a kindle. Haven't seen this mag for years. Works well on the kindle (though probably less graphic intensive than the actual mag). It's now easy to get hold of and it's a bargain at £1.99 an issue.
Wish Isaac was still around to see this, Asimov's delivered wirelessly to your electronic reading device! It's like a self fulfilling prophecy isn't it? Proof that the future is here now! Thankfully no silver jump suits but sadly no hovercars....

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for Kindle HD 16 Nov. 2012
I was most disappointed to find that I could not transfer my long standing subscription to this magazine and Analog from my Kindle keyboard to my new Kindle Fire HD.
It appears that the UK versions are not compatible with the FIRE whereas the US version is. But Amazon US refers me back to UK when I try to set up a subscription through the US site. It's probably a matter of VAT - but it is sad that once again we lag behind the US.

Come on AMAZON - sort it out please!

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth every penny - AND MORE! 10 Jan. 2011
This is one of the best buys I've made for my Kindle - although I'm sure there'll be others. To anyone who likes the "traditional" sci-fi writings associated with an earlier age, this will be perfection!

Excellent science fiction in all its various guises - from twist-in-the-tale short stories to complex and innovative novellas, this is simply marvelous - a great read and very good value. It's utterly praise-worthy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bit of something for every kind of sci-fi fan 21 Dec. 2010
Having recently subscribed to this magazine, I cannot stress enough that the stories in Asimov really do cater for all kinds of Science Fiction fans. The variety and subject matter of the stories are often brilliant, touching all the base's from futuristic far out high-tech, 'realistic' upcoming potential future tech, the metaphysical and the downright bizzare.

While you may not enjoy all of the stories in a particular issue, you will enjoy the majority. For the price, your definitely getting your monies worth each month if your a fan of the genre. Really can't recommend enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value for an engrossing read 2 Mar. 2011
By Edward
I got this on trial just to see if a magazine would hold up on the Kindle and was impressed enough to subscribe. The stories range in their scope and style, but the majority I've read have been highly enjoyable. Well worth the subs cost, probably one of the best magazines available on the Kindle at the moment!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great! 3 Feb. 2011
By Jenesis
As another reviewer mentioned, I think Asimov would be very proud that his magazine can be delivered wirelessly to one's electronic reading device!
Every sci-fi fan should subscribe. There are a few novellas each month, a few short stories and even a few poems. The tales are varied and there's something for everyone, whether you like whizz-bang spaceship sci-fi or human drama stories. There is a working contents table and you can click in and view a short summary of each piece before reading, or if you prefer you can read from beginning to end like a book.
A great price for a great magazine.

4.0 out of 5 stars Once was Lost, But Now It's Found Me 22 Aug. 2011
By John M. Ford TOP 500 REVIEWER
I am a long-time fan of everything Asimov. What better way to remember Isaac Asimov and scratch my itch for science fiction than reading Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine? But I'm not sufficiently well-organized to track it down in a bookstore all of the time. And the mailed issues seem to wander off on their own. The perfect solution is a Kindle subscription that just shows up every month on my iPad--where only I can get at it.

There's a good content balance, too. Each issue has two or three novelettes and maybe twice that many short stories. The quality isn't quite as good as in the The Year's Best Science Fiction Annual collections or Year's Best SF collections I enjoy, but that's to be expected. This is frontline science fiction, from the author to the editor to the reader. The Departments sections with info about conventions, newly-released books, and upcoming stories are added value. They help me feel a little more connected with the science fiction community.

As with other Kindle offerings, one of the attractions is reading on devices like the iPhone and iPad that also hold a lot of legitimate, technical information. Maybe I'm just kidding myself when I think I'm getting away with it, but I do enjoy reading Asimov's in a long, boring, all-hands work meeting. I think he'd enjoy doing it, too.

So, there's the recommendation--subscribe to this magazine via the Kindle app on one or more of your smart devices. It's the best of all possible worlds. And there are a lot of them, aren't there?
