Product Description

Amazon is thrilled to offer Kindle fantasy and science-fiction fans the magazine that Stephen King calls "the best fiction magazine in America."

Founded in 1949, Fantasy & Science Fiction magazine is the award-winning original publisher of such classics as Stephen King's Dark Tower, Daniel Keyes's Flowers for Algernon, and Walter M. Miller's A Canticle for Leibowitz. Each bimonthly issue offers compelling short fiction by writers such as Ray Bradbury, Ursula K. Le Guin, and Terry Bisson, along with the science-fiction field's most respected and outspoken opinions on books, films and science--plus a dash of humor from our cartoonists and writers.

Top Customer Reviews

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.

F&SF is an excellent magazine and I was really excited to see that it is now available in a Kindle version. If you know of the mag you don't need me to tell you how good it is. If you don't know the magazine then trust me - it's good!!

I use Kindle for Android, and this is the first magazine sub I've taken out on this app, and I must say that although I love the magazine I'm very disappointed that you can't save your progress or bookmark a "page" so everytime I reopen the mag I have to scroll through to find my place, and when we're talking about novella's that's quite a lot of scrolling! It really destroys the Kindle experience for me.

Magazines are one of the staples of science fiction, with many authors getting their first break from them before going on to writing full-length books. Trouble is, they're almost impossible to get hold of. Newsagents don't carry them. Some bookshops do - not many, but some - but they never promote them, instead on the rare occasions that I've found them they've been hiding amongst a load of fashion rubbish. Just about the only place you can reliably get them is in sci-fi specialists like Forbidden Planet, but even then you have to make sure you get to the shop on the right day every two months lest they sell out before you get there - and you have to put up with going to Forbidden Planet too.

So when I saw that Amazon were doing magazine subscriptions on the Kindle, and that one of those magazines was Fantasy & Science Fiction I didn't really have any choice, I had to buy it. And given that Kindle magazine subscriptions include the first copy for free it's a no-brainer.

And I'm so glad I did it. My first copy was chock full of well-written short stories. If one or two were a bit sub-par that doesn't really matter, especially given that once I start paying it'll only be £0.99 a month, about a third of what it costs on paper - it's an absolute bargain, and you should subscribe immediately.

This is just what the DR kindle ordered. Never mind mommyporn this is my guilty secret, I can sit on the bus to work read some scifi or a little fantasy and folk think I am reading something else. Asimov, Rodenberry et all envisioned folk using tablets instead of books in the future and the future is here and now and the magazines that started it all are still around and reaching new readers. Long may this work be around, it never fails to entertain.

I subscribed to the extended edition straight away, rather than the freer digest. I am really glad I did. The stories in the editions always make you think. Of course, you can't expect every story in every issue to be to your personal taste, but this does not detract from the overall excellence of the product.

I've read two editions so far and can't wait for the next one. The bi-monthly publishing cycle means I'll have some time to wait, but I know the wait will be worth it. Not a subscription I will be cancelling.
