Free Scifi for the Kindle

Fantasy and Science Fiction Magazine is now offering a free digest version of their magazine in electronic format exclusively at the Kindle Store.  According to the Amazon description, you will get all the non-fiction content and one story and short descriptions of the paid content stories.  The non-fiction content includes interviews and book and movie reviews. 

Obviously this is a marketing gimmick to rope people in to subscribing to the full version, but it is an excellent one.  It is a free sample, to make you crave more.  The full kindle edition runs at about $2 an issue or $12 a year (bi-monthly).  I have already subscibed to the digest version.  I imagine Asimov's will follow suit pretty soon. 

What are you waiting for Fantasy and Science Fiction fans?  The first hit is FREE!
