What They Say...
LOCUS is the only periodical I read from cover to cover. It is also the only magazine which makes me drop everything when it arrives...
--Arthur C. Clarke
I told my students...You have to subscribe to LOCUS!
Anyone whose interest in SF extends beyond reading it to wanting to read about it should be aware of LOCUS.
--The New York Times
LOCUS manages to be broad and deep at the same time. I appreciate the continuous contact with worldwide science fiction, the many viewpoints in the reviews, the lively and intelligent writing.
--Orson Scott Card
The sheer miracle of the production and survival of LOCUS in a field like ours never ceases to amaze me. It's essential reading in this house, and the closest thing we have to an international newszine.
LOCUS is now an intrinsic part of everything that science fiction is and does, a primary resource for innumerable enterprises, and a continuing source of information and entertainment.
Without LOCUS we would be groping around in the dark. But LOCUS is there, shining light into all the dark corners.
--Robert A. Heinlein
