Question Sci-Fi magazines

Hey everyone,

Was browsing through the sci-fi offerings on Apple's Newsstand and came across Asimov's and Analog. Was wondering if there are any other science fiction magazines out there which are available electronically? Any recommendations?

How "hard" and engineering-focused do you like your SF? Analog etc are generally considered the flagship of that type of SF. I like my SF a bit (or a lot) more diverse than that, so maybe take that into account.

Clarkesworld and Lightspeed are great. I have also supported (but not yet read) Uncanny and Crossed Genres. Check out Strange Horizons, Apex and Tor too.

Thanks for all the suggestions! I quite enjoy hard SF, although like you said I also like diversity (although not really a fan of military sci-fi generally). The links look promising. What's your preferred reading app / device / platform though?

I read text stuff on my Aura; colourful/graphic stuff on my iPad Mini Retina. The magazines I linked all come in epub (and other formats).

You can find a bunch of genre magazines at Weightless Books. They've become something of the go-to place for magazines to offer subscriptions since Amazon and B&N aren't exactly reaching out with open arms anymore.

I had a subscription with F&SF back in the Fictionwise days which could be read on just about any device (DRM free), but they cancelled it when they went to a Kindle only format. When they switched, you could only read it on a physical Kindle, but I see that they eventually opened it up to IOS and Android Kindle apps. It's still not available for the Kindle PC application or at any ePub retailer, if that's important to you.

Yeah, so did I. I moved to Amazon when Fictionwise stopped selling subscriptions. It is available at B&N, if you're in the US. They claim it's available through Google Play as well, but I can only find the Magzter app there.

All in all, if you want a DRM-strippable Analog outside the US, looks like you need a physical Kindle (I stll have my DXG, luckily).

I currently have subs at Amazon to Analog, Asimov's and F&SF. I also have a Lightspeed Magazine sub direct from the publisher, and I get the Grantville Gazette bundles from Baen.

I just wish that Analog, Asimov's and F&SF offered direct DRM-free ebook subscriptions. But they don't.

If you're in the US, B&N occasionally offer 2-for-1 subscription deals on Analog with Asimov's.

You may also enjoy Interzone, which is published by TTA Press in the UK. Looks like it's available on iTunes.

SF writers who started through Interzone include Stephen Baxter, Greg Egan, Kim Newman, Alastair Reynolds and Charles Stross.
