30% off subs to Analog, Asimov's

In fictionwise's latest Science Fiction sale, there's 30% off one and two year subscriptions to Analog and Asimov's magazines. Just over 40% if you're a club member.

Analog One Year: http://www.fictionwise.com/ebooks/eBook1108.htm
Analog Two Year: http://www.fictionwise.com/ebooks/eBook1393.htm
Asimov's One Year: http://www.fictionwise.com/ebooks/eBook1109.htm
Asimov's Two Year: http://www.fictionwise.com/ebooks/eBook1394.htm

For club members, that works out to just $1.79 per issue for the two year subs. Amazing value.

I picked up Analog & Asimov's last go around. Thinking I might as well add Interzone too.

If you had to pick one, Analog or Asimov? Right now I'm thinking Analog, for no apparent reason other than I liked their wikipedia entry better (ha!).

This is a GREAT value. In fact, I'm trying to remember if Fictionwise, in the almost 2 years I've been a member, has ever done that.

Like I say, a great value.

I got the discount on Analog during the last SF sale and F&SF on the Fantasy one.

It depends on what you like. Analog is more 'hard sci-fi' while Asimov's is more of speculative fiction. Both are worth reading.

Needing a conversion...

Decided to give a try to Azimov's, Analog and FSF, before any subscription...
I read Mobipocket files, and find Multiformat Prc and Mobi poor formats...So I'm using epub or Lit, with Calibre conversion.
Do you know of another way that could do the trick (other format maybe) ?

Thanks for the tip. I've purchased both for 1 year. I'm going to buy Interzone before the night is through, too.

So instead of a subscription, I ended up getting the earliest back issues of 4 months of Analog and 4 months of Asimov. Figured I'd read them both, see which one I like best and just wait for the next subscription sale.

As a bonus, if I do end up subscribing, I've got backissues available that won't be available for sale in the future.

As an aside, anybody know why old backissues aren't available? They're ebook form, you'd think they'd have all of them for sale.

I think the publisher only has the rights to the stories for a certain amount of time.

It's a rights issue. The magazine buys the right to publish the stories in a magazine, which is available for a limited period, rather than for a book.

The good thing about buying your subscription at fictionwise is that the issues you get in your subscription stay on your bookshelf, even though they're not available to buy any more.

I'm resurrecting this thread to give more details about my subscriptions from fictionwise. I have purchased several from them now, and I like the issues, of course. There are problems, however.

Asimov's: August is listed online now as the current issue. That is the latest issue I have from fictionwise. No problems there.

Analog: September is listed as the current issue online. September is my latest issue from fictionwise, but part 2 of a serial by Barry B. Longyear is missing. It's not in the TOC and not in the issue although it's listed on the cover.

Interzone: Current issue listed online is #223. The latest issue I've received from fictionwise is #221.

Black Static: Current issue listed online is #11. I subscribed May 16th and the starting issue was to be #10. So far I have received nothing.

Caveat Emptor!

For Asimov's, either the serial is also missing from the paper edition, or there's been a conversion problem. Ask fictionwise to check.

For Interzone, I've been subscribed for a while, and Interzone seems to be a bit late in making new issues available as ebooks and then several appear quickly. I'd suggest checking with Interzone directly.

No idea about Black Static. I'd start by asking fictionwise.


Fictionwise are pretty good about handling problems. But they can do nothing if they don't know that there is a problem.

I thought the delays on Interzone and Black Static must be due to the publisher because they're both published by the same house, TTA Press. I'm not happy with the delays so I canceled both of those subscriptions this morning.

On the Barry B. Longyear story, it seems Analog is a bit mixed up. Part 1 of his story Turning the Grain is said to be in the September issue (http://www.analogsf.com/0909/issue_09.shtml), but it already appeared in the July/August issue. I misread it as part 2 of the story. I can only assume part 2 will appear in the next issue, having skipped one issue since part 1.

So, there are no problems with fictionwise after all. My dissatisfaction is with is with TTA Press (http://ttapress.com/) and I have remedied that. Of course I haven't heard from them yet, but fictionwise says in the FAQ they will refund the prorated portion of a subscription.
