Amazon now offering a free teaser subscription to Fantasy & Science Fiction Magazine

Today the digital drought ends for the Fantasy & Science Fiction Magazine. Amazon just announced that the title is now available as a Kindle exclusive. And to celebrate their new exclusive, Amazon are currently giving away subscriptions to a sampler section of the magazine.

I actually had to read this a few times before I figured out what this was, but apparently it's not the full magazine. This teaser sub includes the nonfiction content, 1 full story, and summaries of the rest of the stories.

They don't call it a teaser, but that's what it is. Still, free is free.

Of course, the surprising bit of news here is how long this took. F&SF pulled their digital content from Fictionwise back in April. It's been over 3 months since they have sold any digital subscriptions. This being a sci-fi magazine, I'm sure that hurt their finances.

Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. I picked up a subscription for SF&F when I read this blog post this morning. This is the first digital magazine subscription I’ve got from Amazon. I’m impressed by how good it looks on an android tablet (iconia a500).
