First a side note: I like reading science fiction, and now I live in Germany. Before Amazon existed, I had to buy lots of books on visits to America and take them over to Europe in my suitcase. First Amazon made it possible to order US books from Germany without huge (actually, usually free) shipping costs. Now, Amazon's Kindle makes it possible for me to read US magazines at what is actually *below* the price of a US newsstand or subscription price. Yay!
I have an issue of F&SF from 2010 that lists the 2-year subscription price as $56, plus $12 per year foreign postage, makes $80. The current Kindle subscription rate is $2 per issue. With 6 issues per year, that's only $24 for 2 years. Analog and Asimov's are about $33 per year, but have more pages.
So, what's the difference between the three? Analog and Asimov's (both published by Dell Magazines) tend to publish science fiction that involves spaceships, aliens, robots and the like. F&SF prints stories that are more literary, sort of like a normal short story with an element of science fiction / fantasy (sometimes described as "New Wave" science fiction to distinguish it from the subject matter of the "pulps" from the mid 20th century).
Actually, I like "spaceship" science fiction, but I subscribe to F&SF and only purchase Asimov's if that month's issue sounds promising. Why?Read more ›
I feel that the magazine itself is a gem. It contains many short stories per issue that for me are the perfect size to read just before falling to sleep or while waiting in a doctors office. I have found the editorial quality to be top notch, so I'm rarely disappointed with a story, and even in those rare times where one doesn't excite me, I still consider the value of the magazine to worth the price.
I also find the mix of fantasy versus science fiction to be about where I'd like. I have found that I don't enjoy a magazine that is purely science fiction nearly as much as I would have thought, so the fantasy breaks it up enough to keep me interested. The stories range so much, from silly to deeply thought provoking that there is something for everybody.
The problem isn't the magazine; it's how subscriptions are handled.
1) A real subscription involves a single payment for multiple issues. The whole point is to avoid having to pay every month. You pay once, then get a bunch of issues.
2) You can't keep the back issues. I have electronic back issues of F&SF going back to 2006, which is great for rereading the stories. I can't do that with Amazon subscriptions.
I would LOVE to subscribe again, but until I can keep the magazines there really is no point.
Fix subscriptions: PLEASE!
