And I’m not just saying that because this month’s issue shines the spotlight on SF Signal. (OMG-HOW-COOL-IS-THAT?) No, I’m actually a happy subscriber to the digital edition, which is waiting for me in my inbox on the first day of every month. (I used to subscribe years ago to the print edition…but that venture — through no fault of Locus — was a comedy of postal errors — and another story.)
What do I like about Locus Magazine? The author profiles are always illuminating, the reviews are consistently insightful, the news is informative, the publishing notes (especially the ones noting upcoming publications) stoke my fannish flames, the articles are interesting, and heck — it’s even a hoot to see magazine ads that feature genre books. In a more general sense, it’s a genuine treat to see an entire magazine devoted to the speculative fiction field, and not just an inch of column space added as an afterthought.
In short — I thoroughly enjoy Locus Magazine (and its online counterpart, Locus Online) and you will too. Might I recommend the latest issue which shines a spotlight on a trio of Hugo-winning nerds…?
