has got an issue about SF coming out. Here is a link to the issue, with no real content. You have to buy it on the stands.
Something is about to happen, Hal. Something wonderful!

Well, it's good to see this result from their reader's poll of favorite sf:

By far the favourite of the 254 books you voted for was Dune, Frank Herbert's 1965 epic set on the desert planet Arrakis. The comments accompanying your votes reveal just how much this book blew your minds: "The immersion into an alternate universe/culture/environment is incredible," wrote one voter. But you weren't impressed by the film based on it, directed by David Lynch (one of you described it as "disastrous").
"I'm being ironic. Don't interrupt a man in the midst of being ironic, it's not polite." -- Bradbury, The Martian Chronicles
