Clarkesworld Subscriptions

Time is running out. A few months ago, I made the following promise:

If we hit 500 esubscriptions by our 5th Anniversary issue, I'll add an extra story to each issue.

We haven't reached our target, but we're close. We have until the end of September and with your help, I think we can make it.

Tell a friend. Tweet, post, blog or share. We need to get the word out there. I'm told that there are over 5000 people subscribed to Asimov's on the Kindle. We should appeal to at least some of those people, so it doesn't seem unrealistic to think that there are more than a few people that haven't heard about us.

Thanks to everyone that has helped spread the word (or will do so shortly). This means a lot to us and helps ensure that we'll be around another 5 years.

Reading Clarkesworld on your Ereader

One of the most import ways that we raise money for Clarkesworld Magazine is through the sales of ebook editions of the magazine and our annual anthologies. Every penny we make from ebooks goes straight back into paying for content. You can buy individual issues from:

and I am very pleased to say that the good folks at Weightless Books have set up a way for us to sell subscriptions. We’re still hoping to convince Amazon and B&N to offer subscriptions, but it hasn’t been all that successful. If any of our fans have an "in" with someone there, we’d love to hear about it. (I do know about Amazon’s beta magazine for Kindle program, but it’s better suited to newspapers, a lot of extra work, and would result in a watered-down version of CW).

Please help us spread the word. Marketing ebooks is a bear and getting the word out is our biggest challenge. If you buy from Amazon or B&N, please consider starring or reviewing that issue on their site. It does make a difference.

Thanks!
