Doug Miller, in the comments section of the “The Face of Science Fiction In 2007″ post, says that ASIMOV’S sister publication ANALOG retains more modern covers.
It feels a little unfair to run the cover of the current ANALOG, as depicted on the front page of analogsf.com. But I’m going to anyway.

Once every year or two I develop a brief fascination with the state of sf magazine publishing. I really need to stop.
I used to pick up Gardner Dozois’ Year’s Best SF annual collections just for the long essay in the front that did a “state of the union” for sf publishing, including sales figures for the magazines. Does anyone know if those numbers appear online anywhere?
