Once was Lost, But Now It's Found Me,
This review is from: Asimov's Science Fiction (Kindle Edition)
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?
