    Is this an ebook? If so, how can it possibly be “sold out”? It’s not as though the data actually costs anything to duplicate and send to anybody who wants to pay for it. I will be aghast if this is fake scarcity, actually turning potential customers away.

    • Michael says:

      SOLD OUT means that this magazine isn’t published anymore. It says so at the top of the post. Fantasy was absorbed into Lightspeed by the publisher as of January 2012, so we are no longer selling subscriptions to it. Eventually we’ll remove this post completely.

    Ah, I didn’t see that info at the top and couldn’t make sense of the words “sold out” in this context, but I get it now. Thank you
