In 2009, F&SF will celebrate its 60th anniversary.
In your opinion, which are the most oustanding stories published there during theses six decades (cutting-edge, trend-setting, ... etc...)?

In your opinion, what makes F&SF different from its fellow-magazine counterparts (today's and yesterday's)? What qualities contribute to that special F&SF flavor?

Also time, IMO, to prepare a 60th anniversary anthology, no? It would be good PR.

We're working on an anthology, Fabrice. And I've got other things planned already to celebrate our 60th birtday . . . but suggestions are certainly welcome.

And I won't answer your other survey questions except to quote Mike Ashley, who says that F&SF in his opinion has maintained the same basic voice and vision throughout its history.

Gordon, what Mike Ashley said has also been my own opinion about the magazine. While each editor has brought in his or her own taste, there has been an amazing consistency over the years. And that consistency has sort of been about a lack of consistency -- a diversity. The editors have always been wide-ranging. I think the Bob Mills era was the least "F&SF-ish," the closest to a generic sf magazine, but he published a lot of good stories so he gets a pass.
