I wonder if over seas subsciptions would speed the delivery.


Only by about six weeks Smile

The newstand copies go by surface transport, which is why you get them so much later down there. Subscription copies are individually air-mailed, which is why overseas subscriptions cost so much, it costs much more to post the magazine than print it.

Yer pays yer money etc.

It seems subscribers are in a minority. I was also interested to note that more magazines are sold outside UK and ROI than within it. I wonder how usual this is for UK magazines?



It isn't particularly common. AFAIK, in computing mag terms, 3D Word and possibly Computer Music also have strong exports. I think we could sell a *lot* more mags in the USA, and probably elsewhere, but export is an expensive business, and the cover prices reflect that. The pound being so strong doesn't help either.

On the subs side, our rate of subs versus newstand sales is considered good. That's something that works differently in difeernt places though. In some countries tehre isn't so much of a 'Newsagent' culture so most mag sales are by subscription.

No no no, don't turn right, thats the long way. 4 hours longer, turn left hmmmmmm, more pirates though ... kinda big isn't it.

Issue 66 (i think), May ... is currently on our stands. Slackware and a silver cover. I like the uncluttered look there. How come (prepare_for_silly_question.png), if issues for future months are out now, then why arn't they for the current month (scratch scratch) ... arrhh, of couse ... thats why it's called "Future Publishing" Rolling Eyes
