5.0 out of 5 stars Great scifi and fantasy magazine 10 Aug. 2012
I subscribed to the magazine a few issues ago having heard about it on the Geeks Guide to the Galaxy podcast. I am really glad I did it is full of well selected short stories , ebook exclusives and novellas by some famous names you will recognise from the sf novel shelf ,from some great short story authors normally found in SF anthologies and some newer authors. It is a great way to cram in astory between appointments and to be introduced to new authors from bith the SF and Fantasy genres. I have found myself rading and enjoying stories in themes that I would probably not have grabed from the bookshelf , so it has expanded my SF horizons a bit. The exclusive content is easily worth the subscription. If you have a kindle and an iPad it is even better as you get to appreciate the cover art.
Highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant speculative fiction stories: highly recommended! 2 May 2013
By EM - Published on
Every issue of Lightspeed offers science fiction, fantasy and author interviews. In it you can read all types of speculative fiction from near-future, sociological, soft sf, to far-future, star-spanning SF. And, all types of fantasy--high fantasy, contemporary urban tales, surrealism, magical realism, science fantasy, folktales...and anything and everything in between. Lightspeed consistently delivers brilliant stories by some of my favorite authors and also introduces me to emerging talents.

I also love the author interviews: getting a behind the scenes peek at what motivated the author, how the story developed is always fascinating. And to top it off Kindle subscribers get exclusive content not available online: I like that lots!

The editor, John Joseph Adams, has published a bunch of brilliant anthologies including Wastelands, and Brave New Worlds. I'm very happy with my Kindle subscription because each issue lets me delve into wondrous worlds, mind-opening ideas, and character driven stories. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Fantasy/Sci-Fi Magazine 1 Jan. 2013
By Q - Published on
Verified Purchase
This magazine is a little over 2 years old now, and I started my subscription about 3 months ago. After reading several issues now, I think I can give a review that is not based on just one read. Moving on, this magazine contains 4 new stories, and 4 reprints in each issue, and some stories are available for podcast. The cover art seems to always catch my attention. To sum this up in a few words, all I can say is that I look forward to each issue and read them right away and usually cannot stop until I have read it from cover to cover.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Stories 26 July 2012
Initially, I purchased this magazine for its science fiction stories. I discovered that it contained excellent and engrossing fantasy stories as well. If you enjoy engrossing, thoughtful science fiction and fantasy writing, this magazine is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great magazine for aspiring writers 1 April 2013
By DHamp - Published on
I've been reading Lightspeed for about a year now. The stories are always fresh; John Joseph Adams does a great job as editor. The diversity of the stories and interviews keeps me waiting every month for the next installment. I've even started looking for John's anthologies, because I know they'll be fantastic (pun intended)!

If you're an aspiring writer, Lightspeed is a great starting place. I've been using stories from this magazine as a framework for my own writing, and it's helped quite a bit! I'll hopefully be submitting my own stories soon!

If you love sci-fi and fantasy and haven't started reading (and by reading, I mean subscribed to) Lightspeed Magazine, you're definitely missing out! What are you waiting for??? Do it now!!!
