Clarkesworld Kindle Subscriptions Update


When we launched our Kindle subscription program in June, I mentioned that it was going to play important role in providing Clarkesworld with a more stable financial future. To help get things rolling, I offered to add an extra story to each issue if we could pick up 500 subscribers by our 5th anniversary issue (October). Today we crossed the halfway point! Keep this up and you’ll get those stories. Heck, we might even hit my previously unspoken goal of 1000 by 2012. That would be incredible. You people are the best. Thank you!

Among the award-winning works was "The Things" by Peter Watts, which we published in the January 2010 issue of Clarkesworld Magazine. [text and audio] All of us at Clarkesworld are very happy for Peter and offer him our congratulations and the best of luck next month when we find out whether or not he wins a Hugo Award for the same story.

Here are some pictures of his award and the nominee stone:

It’s not easy to photograph lucite.
