    F& SF registered a slight 1.8 rise in overall circulation from 9,877 to 10,055, although as digital sales figures are not available for F&SF, there’s no way to be certain what the actual circulation number is. Subscriptions dropped slightly from 7,576 to 7,247; of that total, 2,808 copies were sold on the newsstand, up from 2015’ s 2,301, with no information on how many digital sales there were. Sell-through rose to 33 percent. Charles Coleman Finlay completed his first full year as F&SF, having taken over from Gordon Van Gelder, who had edited the magazine for eighteen years, with the March/ April 2015 issue. Van Gelder remains as the magazine’s owner and publisher, as he has been since 2014."
