Here’s a status update as of mid-May, 2014.

 Basically, we’re in a holding pattern until I can re-organize the business in a way that’ll make it financially viable.

 Right now I’m talking to several people and companies about a partnership – one that would give us the promotional and distribution horsepower we need to get where we need to be circulation-wise and financially. If it happens, and I think it will, I’ll let you know asap. And then we can get back to doing what we do best: building the best and most unique retro magazine available anywhere.

 Meanwhile, thanks very much for the patience. 99% of you have been hugely supportive during the delay, and I appreciate it more than you know.

 A quick note to subscribers: If you’re curious about your subscription status, please shoot me an email ( and I’ll get you the info asap. Or, if you can’t email, feel free to call me at 310.849.1845. Obviously, email is easier for me, but I realize not everyone is email-capable.

 We’re not accepting subscriptions, obviously, but we continue to sell back issues. If you’d like any of them (we have all six in stock), shoot me an email or call.

 Hope your summer’s going well, and as always, please drop me a line if you have questions or comments.

 Very best regards,
