Editorial Reviews

The color Kindle edition of Analog Science Fiction and Fact is now available on the Kindle Reading App for your Android device. Download issues at no extra cost from Archived Items.

Published since 1930, Analog Science Fiction and Fact is one of the most enduring and popular magazines of science fiction. Its editorial emphasis is on realistic stories that reflect high standards of scientific accuracy, imagination, and lively articles about current research on the frontiers of real science. A recurrent theme in both fiction and provocative opinion columns is the human impact of science and technology. ANALOG has won numerous Nebula, Hugo, and other awards acknowledging it as a leading periodical in the field. Analog is home to many bestselling authors, including Robert J. Sawyer, Michael F. Flynn, Stephen Baxter, Catherine Asaro, and Harry Turtledove, Joe Haldeman and Ben Bova.

The Kindle Edition of Analog Science Fiction and Fact contains most articles found in the print edition, but will not include all images. For your convenience, issues are auto-delivered wirelessly to your Kindle at the same time the print edition hits the newsstand. The digital subscription consists of 10 issues per year, with double issues in January/February and July/August.

5.0 out of 5 stars New Kindle Format a Winner! September 7, 2009
The November 1, 2009 issue of Analog magazine (received September 2nd) has been upgraded to the Kindle menu format. It is vastly improved! All the comments that complain about the difficult formatting should now be ignored. With this most recent edition, a sections list includes the following topics: Serial (1 article), Novelettes (2 articles), Short stories (2 articles), Science Fact (1 article), and Reader's Department (6 articles). The magazine also states the word length of each story, especially helpful to help the reader determine if he/she has time to read through the whole thing in one sitting.

I have been a subscriber for years to the print edition, but have also read the magazine in several e-book formats. The Kindle was by far the best option of all, with the only drawback being the terrible formatting. With this new edition, all the reasons to hold off on subscribing to this longest running science fiction magazine for your Kindle have been removed. I love the stories and now love the Kindle version. The Serial story of this month's issue, "To Climb a Flat Mountain," is especially worthwhile! (I can't wait until the conclusion next month!)

I subscribe to and enjoy both Analog and Asimov's. If you can only subscribe to one, make your choice based on how much you like the addition of science fact articles, which Analog includes but Asimov's doesn't. For those sci-fact lovers, go with editor Stanley Schmidt and Analog. For the pure sci-fi lover, you get more fiction usually from Asimov's But honestly, at only 3 bucks a month for each magazine, you should get them both. Where else will you get so much entertainment for only $6?

2.0 out of 5 stars Overpriced and delayed delivery killed my interest April 2, 2009
I've been a subscriber to the paper version of Analog for many years and love the magazine. However, my 3 year subscription to the paper version only cost me $86. The Kindle subscription would cost me $36/year or $107.64!!! This is $21 MORE than my paper subscription. If the price were more like $2.00/month, I'd get it ($72/3 years).

Then, the delivered issue was the May 1st issue when I'd just read the June issue. A one month delay did not excite me at all and has been mentioned by other reviewers.

I'd really like to have all my magazines on my Kindle. BUT, I will not be sc....d over on the price and delivery. Amazon can do without this sale.

PS: Love the 14 day trial periods. This was just a bad choice.

3.0 out of 5 stars Love Analog, hate the terrible subscription model! November 6, 2011
By Satori
I am thinking about ending my Amazon Kindle subscription to Analog Science Fiction and Fact because the issues go away and are not archived for re-download like books. This is a terrible subscription model! What about those of use to write and use periodicals for research and reference? The Kindle could be an amazing research tool and save space and paper but instead they charge more for a digital format that is not archived! Please FIX THIS!!

Instant gratification, I love turning on my Kindle and finding a new issue.

The new issues bump the old issues into the "Periodicals: Back Issues" and for some reason I can not get an old issues to be on the top of the reading queue.
If you don't select "Keep" old issue with be deleted after a time.
Old issues are not archived for re-download like books.

In concision, I love Analog, I HATE the subscription model! Might just go back to Paper, even though I love the digital distribution model and not having to carry around more then one thing. The vast majority of my daily reading on the Kindle has been Analog, it would be a shame to leave it behind. I love having a short story to read during lunch break or while waiting somewhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars One or two months behind [may have gotten better] May 14, 2008
Despite the claim that "Your Kindle Magazine is auto-delivered wirelessly when the physical issue hits the newsstand," the Kindle version is one or two months behind the newsstand version. The physical July/August 2008 Analog (with a David R. Palmer novel for which I've been waiting twenty years) went on sale May 13th, but the Kindle version available on that date was the May issue. The June issue was posted a week or so later.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pricing makes no sense February 27, 2011
If you submitted a short story to Analog about a dystopian future where ephemeral and unlimited digital copies of actual physical items cost more than the originals, they'd reject it for being completely nonsensical.

Yet at six bucks an issue from Canada, its actually significantly cheaper to just subscribe directly and get the physical version mailed to your door from the publisher.

Publishers like Dell get their act together and work with Amazon to ensure their pricing reflects the reality of their (essentially non-existent) digital distribution costs. This type of punitive pricing does nothing but insult your potential readership and encourage them to pirate your content rather than buying it at a fair market price. Until then, the minor convenience of having an automatic subscription just can't compete with the minimal effort it takes to find a pirated version for free.

1.0 out of 5 stars Deleting something I bought is NOT convenient. September 15, 2012
I have been reading Analog for three decades. At one point I had a back issue collection with over half the issues published in the nineteen thirties alone. I had every issue published in the fifties. It was great.

I love the magazine.

I love the Kindle.

I will NEVER buy Analog from Amazon as long as they continue the abominable practice of deleting back issues. Just yesterday I downloaded issues from another site I bought in 2006.

All I want is for back issues of Analog to be treated like any normal kindle book. I buy them, I keep them. End of story.

Why is it so incredibly hard for Amazon to understand that people want to keep what they pay for?

Buy Analog, read Analog, but if you want to do so from Amazon get the paper copies.

ASF&F on Kindle Fire doesn't remember read location
This is the reason I have not yet switched my Asimov's and Analog subscriptions to Kindle. I hope Amazon corrects this problem soon.
