Analog Science Fiction and Fact is the longest-running SF magazine published in the U.S. First published in 1930 as Astounding, it appears monthly. As the title states, the content includes science fiction as well as science fact articles, although the latter are not always particularly rigorous, being designed more to spark the imaginations of writers than to cover current scientific research. Stories published in Analog frequently dominate the ballots for the Hugo Awards, in part because it is one of the best-paying markets for short SF, and can thus attract the best authors. The editors seem to have a policy of grouping stories into issues by theme, rather than in order of purchase. About once a year, an issue will come out in which most or all of the stories deal with religion in some way.
Though it has glossy covers, the pages are printed on newsprint. There are some ads, but much fewer than is the case with most magazines. The size is equivalent to a thin trade paperback (5" x 8".) You can subscribe through Amazon.com if you have a mailing address in the U.S.
