Looking for a Last-Minute Holiday Gift: Give the Gift of Short Fiction

There are so many great science fiction/fantasy/horror magazines available today, and any (or all!) of them would make a great gift for that special someone who loves to read. And since many of these magazines are available online, or in e-book format, you can subscribe today and have your subscription in time for tomorrow–making them a great last-minute holiday gift. Here are ten of my favorites to choose from.

This is by no means an exhaustive list, there are plenty more. These are just the magazines that I enjoy the most. They all maintain a high level of quality, the stories contained within are very, very good, and they are all well worth their subscription price. If you are looking for a last-minute gift, or any gift for that matter, for someone who loves to read, check out the magazines above and see if a subscription would fit the bill.
