Product Description

In only five years, Clarkesworld has established itself as one of the leading science fiction and fantasy magazines. It has been the recipient of two Hugo Awards and several of the stories they've published have won or received nominations for the Hugo, Nebula, Sturgeon and other prestigious awards.

Each monthly issue of Clarkesworld features an editorial, interview, thought-provoking article and two original short stories from both new and established authors like Peter Watts, Jay Lake, Catherynne M. Valente, Yoon Ha Lee, N.K. Jemisin and Kij Johnson. The Kindle edition of Clarkesworld Magazine features all text and art used in our other editions.

Clarkesworld is committed to expanding (at no additional cost to readers) the amount of content provided in each issue and will do as they pass various subscription milestones. They are currently within 50 subscribers of adding a third original story to each issue.

Kindle Magazines are fully downloaded onto your Kindle so you can read them even when you're not wirelessly connected.This magazine does not necessarily reflect the full print content of the publication.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is where I want to live 3 Feb. 2015
This magazine is probably the best thing about owning a kindle. Been a sci-fi /fantasy fan from a very young age and, due to living in the sticks, had always been frustrated that I could never lay my hands on a decent, regular supply of high quality short fiction that seemed to be the bread and butter breeding ground of so many great authors.
I have now been a subscriber for a few years and I don't know of any magazine where the standard of story has been so consistently high. And with Neil's (and the rest of the team) commitment to sourcing and translating work from China and elsewhere I find that the magazine is going from strength to strength. With the increasing number of stories contained in each issue thanks to subscribers and supporters across multiple platforms such as Patreon the e-zine just becomes better value almost monthly.
You can also get audio versions of the stories as podcasts from the website which are great and very handy for me as it means I can listen to them while I'm working.

4.0 out of 5 stars Serious SF/F - although not my cup of tea 16 Feb. 2015
This is the first issue I've read. The fiction was steampunk. I don't know if this was an issue devoted to this or if the magazine specialises in steampunk and alternative histories - I don't really like either. The magazine has original fiction plus reprints of some classics. There are also articles about SF/F and interviews with writers. Fantasy and Science Fiction are very diverse, with multiple sub genres, and there are conventions within each sub genre. I found the short fiction, as short fiction, unsatisfactory, with a lack of closure and completeness. This could be because I am not familiar with the sub genre, and someone who was could fill in the missing bits. Clarkesworld takes SF/F seriously, and I'd like to support that. There was a deal: first month free, then a subscription; cancel at any time. I'll keep the subscription and see what subsequent issues offer.

5.0 out of 5 stars 3rd Sci-fi Magazine for Kindle Subscription! 5 Jun. 2011
By Abraham Ogden - Published on Amazon.com
Clarkesworld is the 3rd Sci=fi magazine available for Kindle subscription service, right behind Asimov's and Analog, and it looks great.

The subscription issue(s)has a well laid out format, with an easy to navigate menu along with a progress bar to show where you are within the story/article that you are reading. The cover art is still viewable on the kindle but, since the kindle isn't in color, it does loose some of its vibrancy. With the kindle app on my Droid X, however, the cover art looks amazing.

I wished there were more stories in each issue, but since Clarkesworld is offered free on their website I can see why that is so. Content costs money. The editor, Neil Clarke, says in the current issue's editorial that if the magazine can reach 500 subscribers by October 2011 then they will add a third story. That is good news!

5.0 out of 5 stars As a Time-Challenged Parent, this Is the Magazine I Read the Most 4 Sept. 2012
By Scott Kennedy - Published on Amazon.com
About a year ago, to try to catch up with the current state of SF&F writing, I began subscribing to a number of SF&F magazines: Asimov's, Analog, Lightspeed, Apex, and Clarkesworld. While there is a treasure of fine writing in all of these magazines, Clarkesworld is the one that I consistently find myself reading cover-cover, without skipping or abandoning a story or article halfway through. Of course, many of those other magazines are a great deal longer, so it's not a particularly fair comparison. But if you're a busy parent like I am, with limited reading time, I'd just like to say you can't go wrong with Clarkesworld. It's a great way to spend your spare minutes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! 24 Jun. 2011
By Princess of Mars - Published on Amazon.com
I signed up for the free trial of the magazine on a whim, but I will definitely be keeping this subscription! There are 2 fiction stories in each issue. The two in the current issue (June 2011) are amazing. Both of them were incredibly well written and transported me to different worlds.

There is also a non-fiction article and an author interview in the issue.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best 3 Sept. 2012
By Melissa Smith - Published on Amazon.com
The stories published in Clarkesworld deserve the many awards for which they've been nominated. This magazine publishes some of the edgiest, most invigorating SF, fantasy and horror out there. The subscription price is a steal. You won't notice the loss of $2, but you will thoroughly enjoy spending time with the stories. Magazines absolutely rely on a subscriber base to survive. In an ideal world, Clarkesworld would thrive. The world of speculative fiction needs an independent, fresh thinking publication like this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic magazine 2 Sept. 2012
By J. Greene - Published on Amazon.com
I've been reading Clarkesworld off and on since the beginning. The off and on had nothing to do with the quality of the magazine but rather because I really, really hate reading in my web browser for longer than ten or fifteen minutes.

Clarkesworld was my very first digital subscription because the stories are top-notch, it's that simple. My only regret is that there aren't more in each issue, but hopefully that will come as more people discover this truly excellent magazine.

Note--Amazon apparently doesn't extend the "verified buyer" info to magazine subscriptions, but I *am* a subscriber and as long as they are publishing stories of this quality, I will remain so.
