I got the March 2006 issue of F&SF today. I’m so far behind it’s not funny. I’m six months behind on SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN, let alone any of the science fiction magazines I get. I always do a quick browse of the contents to see if there are any stories that look immediately interested, or any authors whom I particularly enjoy, In this issue, there is a David Gerrold story, “Thirteen O’Clock,” which looks interesting. I’ll try and get to it sooner rather than later.
Speaking of magazines, do publishers send out renewals at the beginning of the year, even if your subscription is not up yet? Do they do this because it’s a new year? I’ve gotten renewal notices for four magazines recently. And most of my subscriptions are not close to ending. Well, I’ll worry about re-upping next week.
