Playboy was once the single greatest short fiction market in America, even over The New Yorker. That was long time ago.

Of course, Penthouse once had great journalism, too--along with photos that were erotic in a way Playboy couldn't touch and artistic in a way Hustler wasn't remotely interested in. Hell, Penthouse spawned Omni, one of the greatest SF magazines that ever existed.

Man, I miss Omni. I loved that magazine.
