Excellent, long-running fantasy and science fiction magazine,
This review is from: Fantasy & Science Fiction, Extended Edition (Kindle Edition)For those of you who have never encountered this magazine before, it has been going since 1949 and has won multiple Hugo, Nebula, Locus, etc. awards for itself and the stories it has published. Its contents regularly reappear in the various 'Best of the Year' anthologies.
The writers who have appeared in its pages read like a who's who of the Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror field and have included Stephen King, JG Ballard. Brian W. Aldiss, Robert Bloch, Lucius Shepard, Robert Silverberg, Fritz Leiber, Fred Pohl, Jack Vance and hundreds more.
Publishing a literate and sometimes literary blend of SF, Fantasy and Horror, it is worth much more than the 99p subscription price (UK readers). I already have a paper subscription and have also subscribed to the Kindle one; at this price it is worth the extra to have the convenience of a electronic edition. At the risk of stating the obvious you would be much better subscribing for three issues than buying a single copy.
Will post a paragraph giving a review of this particular issue once I've read it.
Give it a go!!
PS As pointed out in the comments it is 99p per month not issue, so £1.98 per issue.

Like you I am delighted to see this is now available for my Kindle, having been a subscriber during the 70s and 80s.
I will subscribe and am looking forward to reading it once more.

My first issue was the July 1976 one: lovely Rick Sternbach cover! I hope this vastly improves their UK circulation.

Sorry, but the subscription appears to be 99p per month with the magazine issued every 2 months, so £1.98 per issue.

Paul Fraser says:
Yep, you appear to be correct; I'll need to check my Account in a month or so to see the debit. Still a good deal for people who are not subscribers, but probably a bit of a luxury to have this as well as the paper edition :)
Will revise review, thanks.
