Do You Subscribe?

Almost a year ago, I wrote a post about the number of genre magazines that I subscribed to. Things have changed over the year, so I thought I could present an updated list.

Print Magazines:

Online Magazines

I have a subscription to Locus (which needs renewing), but I didn’t list it above as it doesn’t publish any short fiction. However, its well worth the price of subscription for the reviews, magazines received, forthcoming books, etc.

I also bought every issue of Rabid Transit and Say… when they come out. The Rabid Transit series has transitioned into a novella series (which is very cool) and the Say… series hasn’t come out for many years, altough I hear a new issue is in the works.

I used to have a subscription to Asimov’s and I’ve often thought about re-subscribing, but haven’t. I never subscribed to Analog. I think Stanley Schmidt does a great job selecting fiction for Analog, it’s just not what I look for in short stories.

I was once a subscriber to Trunk Stories, Farthing, and Grendelsong, but those magazines are currently not publishing. Also, I used to buy/receive copies of Artemis, Century, and CRANK!, but none of those magazines are with us any more either.

At one time I used to get all of the DNA publications–Absolute Magnitude, Dreams of Decadance, Fantastic, Chronicle, and Pirate Writings–in the mail, but I haven’t seen any issues from them in more than five years.

So I’m curious, do any of you subscribe to the genre magazines? And if so, to how many? Here’s a short poll to find out. If the poll doesn’t show up, you can go to my blog and answer it there:
