This magazine has ace stuff. With both fiction and nonfiction, you get great, short works every month. I'm psyched to see my new download every time. I highly recommend this to anyone.

This is an amazing magazine. So far I have gotten two issues and I have read them both cover to cover. It is a thrill to see a new issue pop up on my kindle. If you love quality science fiction and enjoy being transported to new and far away worlds, do yourself a favor and order Clarkesworld magazine.

I've been subscribing to Science Fiction magazines off and on since the mid-70's and I've pretty much at least tried them all. My favorite magazine and the only one I impatiently wait for each first of the month to appear on my Kindle is Clarkesworld.

The magazine is just right. The price is right (although don't tell Neil Clarke I'd pay more if I had to), the number of stories is just right and the quality of the stories and non-fiction articles is just right. The style is just right - somewhere between Analog's hard SF and Asimov's Soft SF. There's no poetry or magical fantasy which I just ignore anyway and adds unnecessary size to the files. Just good SF.

This is the only SF magazine that I finish during the current issue month. The rest of my subscriptions all fall behind several issues. If had to cut back to just one subscription, this would be the one.

If you like moderately hard SF and eschew classic or urban fantasy, this is the magazine for you.

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.
