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 just purchased an issue of this magazine for the first time. I have read all three short stories. They are all stunning and affect you deeply. None of them was ho-hum. The editors keep a good selection. Thank you.

Clarksworld offers a variety of stories in each issue and I have yet to be disappointed. I love the convenient Kindle version too!

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.

Clarkesworld is the 3rd Sci=fi magazine available for Kindle subscription service, right behind Asimov's and Analog, and it looks great.

The subscription issue(s)has a well laid out format, with an easy to navigate menu along with a progress bar to show where you are within the story/article that you are reading. The cover art is still viewable on the kindle but, since the kindle isn't in color, it does loose some of its vibrancy. With the kindle app on my Droid X, however, the cover art looks amazing.

I wished there were more stories in each issue, but since Clarkesworld is offered free on their website I can see why that is so. Content costs money. The editor, Neil Clarke, says in the current issue's editorial that if the magazine can reach 500 subscribers by October 2011 then they will add a third story. That is good news!

I'm embarrassed to say that I'm not a charter subscriber of Clarkesworld. This fine SF&F magazine managed to slip past my notice until I met the editor, Neil Clarke, at Capclave a couple of years ago. Since then I've been a subscriber and avid reader of this monthly. I devour it shortly after it shows up in my Kindle. I'd happy point at favorite stories from each month, but it's just easier to say that Neil and the team at Wyrm do such a good editorial job that there's been NOTHING that I didn't like, ever. I'm also pleased and happy to be reading the translated Chinese SF that Neil's been doing each month for a quite a while now. Fiction from different cultures is awesome. Clarkesworld: Highly Recommended!

Issue 91 of Clarkesworld opens with “Passage of Earth” by Michael Swanwick. Swanwick is one of my favorite authors when he’s not writing about talking dogs, and this is not a Darger and Surplus story, so I was already inclined to like it. Hank, the protagonist, is the county coroner in a small rural community. One morning, in the wee small hours, an ambulance brings a Worm to his morgue, and Evelyn, a member of the (unidentified) Agency who also happens to be his ex-wife, instructs him to perform an autopsy. The anatomy of the creature, a member of the only other intelligent species in the universe that humans have yet encountered, is so completely different from that of humans that humans don’t know how to combat them — assuming combat is necessary, and the humans appear to be spoiling for war. It’s a tale of interspecies conflict writ small, but with such imagination that the Worm takes shape before our eyes as Hank dictates his findings. It’s an excellent work of science fiction, and left me hungering for more of Swanwick’s work.

“Autodidact” by Benjanun Sriduangkaew concerns Nirapha, a woman who applies for a parental license only to be charged with parenting an artificial intelligence born of a star that powers a warship. The Agent of the Bureau to which Nirapha must apply for a license tells her that this will be good practice for becoming a mother. She is given little choice in the matter. Her job is to teach the ship ethics and interpersonal etiquette, while her co-parent, Mehaan Indari, a woman “emblazoned rather than eroded by years” (she’s in her mid-life, her 80s), will teach the ship combat simulations. The ship communicates with its parents through a virtual persona that looks like a young soldier.
