Short stories in e-format

For over the last decade I have been writing articles about how well short stories fit epublishing.  Short stories are something that I miss very much in mainstream publishing.  I had so much fun with those pulp SF magazines when I was in school.  I found this article in the New York Times that points out the expanding short story emarket today.

Anyone else miss those old shorts?

Kristine Kathryn Rusch has released pretty much her whole short story backlist as 99 cent epubs.  Maybe a model for others to follow.

I subscribe to the Nook version of Analog magazine, just so that I can have short stories to read.  This was done after years of having a subscription to the dead tree version.

Do you keep older issues?  I get ticked off that B&N keeps archiving them (and eventually deleting them) against my wishes.

I per advice I read some where in one of these forums, I archive then un-archive the magazine issues which prevents B&N from deleting them.

 

I also download them to Nook for the PC, then copy the directory Nook for PC has of B&N books/magazines to another directory and back up that directory.
