I just wanted to thank Mr. Van Gelder for providing a Fictionwise edition of F&SF, particularly a multiformat version that's viewable on the new e-reader from Amazon. I have been a subscriber to the magazine for a few years now, but honestly, I haven't gotten as much enjoyment from reading it recently because, with my disability, handling, holding, and positioning the physical book has been somewhat difficult. Nothing catastrophic or severe, but a bit of an inconvenience and chore at times that just sort of turned me off to reading as much as I used to.
But with the new e-reader I've had my lifelong reading passion reinvigorated, and I'm enjoying being able to read F&SF on it so much that I've now subscribed to the Fictionwise version. The only thing I wish is that, despite the limited graphic abilities of the current device model, it would be nice to have the covers included in the ebooks. But that's a minor issue.
Just wanted to express my gratitude for providing the ebook option, and let you know that for some of us, having this option is extremely important for some of us, particular me who as both a writer and reader have been a fan for a long time.

Thanks for taking the time to say so. We've published electronic editions with Fictionwise and with eReader (which recently was acquired by Fictionwise) for a long time now and we intend to keep offering the magazine electronically.

Thank you from Romania too - with our postal services I wouldn't dare trying a regular subscription!
