Fantasy & Science Fiction (Extended Edition) (March/April 2012)
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
Amazon is thrilled to offer Kindle fantasy and science-fiction fans the magazine that Stephen King calls "the best fiction magazine in America."
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 humour from our cartoonists and writers.
Publishing a literate and sometimes literary blend of SF, Fantasy and Horror, it is worth much more than the 99p subscription price (UK readers).

Partial, localized, and temporary, he hoped and guessed. Amnesia seemed the wrong word to her. What she had was less like a forgetting than an absence. Something that not only didn't exist but never had. On no level did the idea of being a mother resonate with her. Her desire for kids was gone. Dr. Stanović was

The hard part of the work now began. Vern opened all four doors of the Rolls, detached his frat brother from the conjoined lizard and stowed him in the boot. In death as in life, Ish was a royal pain, but Vern—now sweating profusely despite the cool evening—somehow hauled and crammed the creature into

Well, we must certainly rouse the village, Reverend. If you take the houses east of Bear Creek, I will take all the west side—" "No!" The Reverend Kirtley seized both of Dr. Dapper's wrists in his big-knuckled hands. "I could not bear it if...if the worst were known to…to…" "To all your congregation," Dr. Dapper

One of the most important rules is, The second-best combination for pairs is a homosexual man and a heterosexual woman ( the best, a homosexual man and woman, is just too much to hope for); the worst pairing is a heterosexual man and a homosexual woman.

All of you have valuable careers ahead of you—that's why I
Once the generator began operating there was a flood of entries. Day by day her grasp of English improves. I know now that the spirit within the amber sphere is female. She does not have a name as we have names, but I call her Electrica. Unlike my wife, she has a love and mastery of the natural philosophies. Her grasp of all matters electrical defies belief. I have not as yet worked out what civilization is hers, whether Egyptian, Chinese, Indian, or of some unknown people. To better facilitate
