I hadn't even thought about it...I should look to see what's available. I'd pop for Writer's Digest if it was available. I shall go look and see!

I'll give a hearty second to your nominations, and a "thank you!" to alerting me about these others that are available! I hadn't thought to look for these yet!

I wouldn't recommend that you buy these from Amazon. They have DRM, can't be shared, and they are erased from your account after 6/7 months unless you actively tell them you want to keep it on your Kindle. I get them from Fictionwise. No DRM and they stay around for as long as you want them.

Thanks for the advice!

I'm the only Kindle owner on our account that would read these (at least for now!), so the "DRM/single Kindle" thing isn't problematic, and I'll just keep a copy on an SD card. How is the price at Fictionwise? If it's roughly the same, it's easier to just get the automatic d/l from Amazon, right? Does Fictionwise keep a copy online for future downloading?

Thanks, again, and I'll go check them out!

Each of these four are $2.99/month from Amazon. From Fictionwise (withOUT the $30/year "BuyWise" membership): Analog = $32.97/yr., Asimov's Science Fiction = $32.97/yr., Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine = $29.97/yr., and Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine = $29.97/yr.

So I'd save $18/yr total, by getting these from Fictionwise. I've already downloaded the "trial subscription" from Amazon, so I guess I'll read through them and see if I want to keep a subscription from either, then decide if $3-6/yr for each title is worth the convenience of autodownloading.

I'd probably go for Cosmo, too  ;D

Yup, definitely agree. I used to get Asimovs and Analog at Amazon until I upgraded to the K2 and became disillusioned with their subscriptions policies. Now I subscribe via Fictionwise plus added Fantasy & Science Fiction which they have and Amazon doesn't!

Back to the main topic. I'd like to see these in eMagazine format:

Bookmarks
World Literature Today
Fanfare
Scientific American

There's a bunch of other magazines but they'll have to wait for a K3 or K4/5 to make it worth it (art and astronomy magazines which I get for the pretty pictures.)

Even on an SD card, I'm pretty sure the magazines you get through Amazon would no longer work if you tried to transfer them to a new Kindle. Someone can correct me if I'm mistaken though.

I would love to see "The Week" magazine on my Kindle.  By far my favorite magazine for current events and diverse editorials!

I agree. . . .it gives you a quick synopsis of all the major stuff. . .and some of the goofy stuff too. Not in depth at all, but they tell you where they pulled stuff from so you can read more detail if you want to. I really like it.

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but EGM went under several months ago.
I'm not surprised. My hubby and I canceled our subscription to it about a year ago because we disliked the biased reviews and crappy commentaries. But I figured I might check it out again on the Kindle if it were available, in the hopes that it improved. Game Informer is better anyway. :)
