Analog FAQ

Purchase Back Issues

  • How do I choose between Kobo, Magzter, and Google Play Newsstand?
    All three work on Android and iOS, but Magzter also works on a desktop or laptop through its web reader. Kobo has an e-ink device that's good for reading in sunlight. All three offer PDF formatting that works best on 10"+ tablets, but Newsstand also has a flowing text option that works well for sub-10" devices.

Subscribe to Magazine

  • Which stores sell digital subscriptions?
    Besides Kobo, Magzter, and Google Play Newsstand, subscriptions are also available on Kindle and NOOK (but not back issues). All are about $6/issue and $30/yr.
  • How do I choose between the five Reader apps?
    Read the purchase Q&A above for Kobo, Magzter and Google Play Newsstand. Kindle and NOOK have flowing text that works well for sub-10" devices. Both have e-ink devices that are good for reading in sunlight. NOOK also works on Windows desktop and laptop PCs. The Kindle apps for PCs only work for eBooks, not eMagazines.
  • Should I read the magazine as PDF or flowing text?
    PDFs preserve the scene breaks (two blank lines) and dialog paragraph breaks that are sometimes lost in conversion to flowing text in eMagazines. However, on small screens, PDFs require zooming and panning that is more tedious than the simple page swipe for flowing text.

Interzone FAQ

Purchase Back Issue

  • How do I choose between Kobo, Kindle and Weightless?
    Kobo and Kindle are equivalent and have e-Ink devices and apps for all major platforms. Weightless offers PDF issues, which might have the same full-page graphics and formatting as the print issues and look better than the primarily-text EPUB or MOBI formats (to be confirmed by April 2016). Note: The back issues page at TTA Press sells print copies, not digital copies.

Subscribe to Magazine

  • Which stores sell digital subscriptions?
    Currently, only Weightless Books sells digital subscriptions to Interzone in EPUB, MOBI and PDF formats ($24.99/yr for 6 issues). Note: The subscription page at TTA Press sells print subscriptions, not digital subscriptions.
  • Should I read the magazine as PDF or flowing text?
    PDFs preserve the illustrations, scene breaks (two blank lines) and dialog paragraph breaks that are sometimes lost in conversion to flowing text in eMagazines. However, on small screens, PDFs require zooming and panning that is more tedious than the simple page swipe for flowing text. The Kindle eReader devices only support flowing text whereas the Kindle reader app for tablets and smartphones support PDF and flowing text.
