I always thought IASFM got a little soft in the 80's (the covers I mean) but I like this one. Can you get this in the UK?
I remember buying isue # 1 with my pocket money. I walked down to the store to get my issue of Fantastic (my first Conan story!) and I saw Asimov's mug on the cover. I bought it anyway. I think it was red. The second was was blue I think and also had his face on the cover. Ugh.

@ kiekelly:

You're welcome mate! Anything with Barlowe's name on it means I'm going to buy it.

Yeah it was possible to get Asimov's SF from some specialist magazine shops like Borders (is it still going? I know Analog is...) but I didn't fancy any of them until I saw this one which I had to get because of the cover artist who is an old favourite of mine.

Haha, I guess the first couple of issues were before they had a budget to commission an artist!
