Thanks, I think I will buy a few single copies first, to see if I still like it. I did go to the URL and put it in my favorites list for future reference. Thanks again.

BIRDY100 I used to get it in the magazine rack at any book store but since I loved it so much I got a subscription. You can find more here:
http://www.sfsite.com/fsf/

But, and this is a very big important BUT, the magazine had it list of subscribers stolen not too long ago. Since then subscribers are getting fake renewels in the mail that look exactly like the f&sf mag renewels. So many subscribers send in a check using the enclosed prepaid envelope and are therefore robbed since they don't get the mag renewel.

I have since been paying my subscription online using what I know to be their web site.

It's another phishing scam just instead of using the internet and electronic mail they use the postal mail.

Used to read the mag years ago, but didn't even realize it was still in print. Have to look around. Where do you find it; Book section of grocery stores, library, book stores like Amazon or Barnes and Noble?

I have a subscription to Analog...but I always like a little variety, so sometimes I pick up Fantasy and Science fiction. They are the perfect size. And great for airplane trips too.

Is anyone else an reader of The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction? I *love* that magazine and have been reading it for over 10 years. I got hooked on it years ago when (now DH then dear bf) bought me a number of scifi/fantasy/horror magazines. The one that stood out for me was Fantasy & Science Fiction.

They are wonderful to read and excellent stories. For commuters it fits perfectly in a small bag since its more like a book than a full sized 8x10 magazine.

Anyway I just thought I would let my fellow sparker bibliophiles know about this mag if they didn't already! Enjoy!
