Hmm, no doubt we all read novels (else why would you be here?), but I am sure there are some of us that read more than that. It is easy to forget that magazines devoted to the genres still exist and provide a source for short fiction, albeit perhaps no longer by those recognizable names they once published. Easy to forget because the likes of Howard,Leiber, and even Moorcock are rare these days. Everyone moves on to novels, forgetting the serial shorts.
However, those magazines still exist for the most part. I have been going through wikipedia to discover them and it hasn't exactly been the easiest thing to do. Most have gone away, others have moved over to the webzine format, and some are trash. Weird Tales, around for eight-five years, just went through a renovation of sorts and, after I looked over it a bit, I picked up a subscription. The current issue has a new Moorcock tale in it, one of the reasons why I decided to check it out. Realms of Fantasy is kicking about, though you wouldn't recognize it by its website, which hasn't been updated in over a year. They offer a free trial issue and I took them up on it, unfortunately while the magazine is full of glossy, full color pages, the content was, well... f**king trash. Weird Tales is greyscale pages, through and through, and it works, which goes to show you that just because it is pretty, doesn't mean it is worth a damn in the end.
There are others of course. Black Gate offers up a rather thick magazine dedicated to epic fantasy, but is expensive and has had issues in getting out the magazine on the quarterly schedule they have it set as. However, you can order their older magazines and these do include reprinted classic fiction. The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction still exists, but I confess to a lack of knowledge about anything from them, so there is little I can say. You can, of course, order a sample copy from them as well as back issues.
So, yeah, does anyone else here read these magazines or have suggestions as to which ones to check out?
