Clarification: By "Asimov's Science Fiction" and Fantasy & Science Fiction", I mean the magazines by those names. By "under 30," I mean I will mock at length the over-30-year-olds who click any of the options.

We, who are over 30, need an option to click just so that we can see the results of the goddamned poll.

Ahem.

Actually, if you don't mark any of the options and then click the square thingie at the bottom, you see the results.

I wish to... ah, never mind.

I am not under 30, and I *used* to regularly read _Asimov's_ and semi-regularly read _Analog_ and rarely read _F&SF_.

...
James, you need a younger audience.

Me too. (Well, the misread part, but I blame my senility at age 44)

argh. i misread the under thirty bit.

I'm *in* my thirties, though, and for some reason my brain twinked.

mock away.

[X] I am over 30 and have never read a fiction magazine (any genre).

I am 30, so I'm not sure if I count or not. But I once had subscriptions to them (for maybe a year or two each, at varying times), and now don't.

Actually, this reminds me that my Interzone sub appears to have lapsed in the last few months. I'd been struggling to remember to renew it ever since they started attaching the renewal form to the mag, rather than having a sheet of paper I could put on my To Do pile. Ah well.

Yeah, I wish to complain about this poll because it lacks an option that would contain the result "I am under 30 and I subscribed to or regularly purchased both Asimov's and Analog when I was a teenager."

Do people under 30 even read this blog?

I wish to complain about this ageist poll.
And my cat wishes to complain about its bias in favour of entities that can read.


What if I'm young at heart or immature?

FWIW, I'm 24 and up to about a month ago regularly devoured both Asimov's and F&SF before I let my subscriptions lapse due to money!fail. I also gave my entire magazine collection, some of it very old, to some teenage boys because the kind of apartments I can afford here don't generally have that sort of space.

I guess what I'm saying is a dearth of under-30s in the subscriber ranks can't and shouldn't be entirely attributed to lack of interest. I'm going to subscribe again, eventually, if they don't fold first.

I had not heard of Analog Science Fiction and Fact in so far as I did not know that that was its full name.

I had not heard of The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, as I had no idea that there was a The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction.

There are, however, other magazines I read regularly.

I'm 25 and voted.... (Regularly read Fantasy and Science Fiction, sometimes read Asimov's and Analog)

when i was a kid (now over 30) my grandmother got me a subscription to Asimov's Science Fiction
