Okay, so this isn’t really one specific (set in stone) title…but it’s an enjoyable read. The Fantasy & Science Fiction magazine has been around since, 1949 and publishes short stories on anything from martian planets to ghosts and knights in battle. They publish six times a year and are only $7.99 an issue (I’m currently trying to scheme my friends into buying me a yearly subscription).
While I like to read the magazine for the entertainment value, not to mention I get to be in the loop about science fiction writing before any blockbuster movies are released, the magazine has also published really well known names. Names include authors like Stephen King (known for The Shining, also a great read, and many other bestsellers) and Daniel Keyes (Flowers for Algernon). The magazine is also a great way to read works as short stories (many times from unknown authors) before they become bestselling novels. So who knows, you might just find your new favorite science fiction/fantasy writer.
Regardless of why you choose to read the Fantasy & Science Fiction magazine, you should read something enjoyable once in a while…even if it’s about weird looking monsters or vigilantes in space.
Excerpt from Amazon:
Founded in 1949, Fantasy & Science Fiction magazine is the award-winning original publisher of such classics as Stephen King’s Dark Tower, Daniel Keyes’s Flowers for Algernon, and Walter M. Miller’s A Canticle for Leibowitz. Each bimonthly issue offers compelling short fiction by writers such as Ray Bradbury, Ursula K. Le Guin, and Terry Bisson, along with the science-fiction field’s most respected and outspoken opinions on books, films and science–plus a dash of humor from our cartoonists and writers.
