A New Way to Support the Magazine

We’ve just made an Amazon Affiliate store! Hurrah!

If you’ve never seen one of these before, here’s how it works. Basically you buy books we’ve put on there (that’s not ours) and we get a percentage of the book price, which is awesome and means we can pay everybody on time for Issue #3. We’ve put some great books on there, including Ted Chiang’s The Lifecycle of Software Objects, N.K. Jemisin’s The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms, and All Clear by Connie Willis.

If you don’t like our taste in literature, but are planning on buying something from Amazon around now anyway, please please consider clicking on one of the links in our affiliate store, and then going to whatever you want to buy from that page, as we’re paid for anything you buy after you click on any link on our store. If you are a college student getting ready to buy textbooks, especially expensive ones like big medical or math textbooks, and are buying them on Amazon, you would be our best friend forever if you go through our site first – the amount we would get would not be insignificant, to us or to our writers.

I’m planning on making a more permanent and good looking way to link the affiliate site very shortly, but wanted to throw this post up in the meantime. We’re going to try this out for a little while and see how it goes – Strange Horizons uses an affiliate store, and from what I’ve read about it, it seems it’s served them pretty well in the past, so we thought we’d give it a spin.

Okay, just one more link to the store. I promise.

As always, if you have any questions/comments/hopes/dreams,  let us know in the comments.
