F&SF and Kindle

Since people keep asking us when F&SF will be available for the Kindle, I thought I’d post here.

F&SF is currently available in electronic formats through Fictionwise.com:  http://www.fictionwise.com/eBooks/spilogaleinceBooks.htm?cache.

I believe you can buy F&SF in a format like Mobipocket and read it on the Kindle without any problem.

I looked into the possibility of selling F&SF directly through Amazon.com, but I found their terms unwelcoming, so I haven’t pursued this avenue further.

If  anyone finds that they cannot use Fictionwise to get an electronic edition of F&SF that’s readable on the Kindle, please let us know.  Thanks.

    Just came across your blog on Google. Interesting post, you bring up a few good things to think about. Good luck with the blog.

    FWIW, I bought the newest issue from fictionwise in .mobi format. It works fine, though it lacks a hyperlinked table of contents, making it difficult to get to the individual stories :(

    Convenience and auto-delivery are important to me; I’d like to read F&SF, but if I can’t get it auto-delivered for my Kindle I’m not going to bother – I find downloading and manually copying it over to my Kindle to be “unwelcoming”.

    I’m already subscribing to Analog and Asimov’s through Amazon, and would suggest that you reconsider your decision.

    We’ll have a Kindle version soon but we have no plans to produce a version for the iPad.

    The last issue they have at Fictionwise is Jan-Feb 2011, which I already bought. I just read the review of Jul-Aug issue in Locus and wanted to buy it. I went to Amazon and they had it for $7.50, which I bought. But they now have F&SF subs for 99 cents a month. Is that right?They also offer a free sub version – which is confusing.

    I was worried that F&SF might be going out of business. I never see it on newsstands anymore. I prefer ebook versions because of my eyes and the environment.
