The end of the year brings Secret Santa, Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer, and a lot of dying magazine rumours. With Kirkus Review now down in the cold ground (E&P does not count because it moved from magazine to web a few years ago), it feels like others could be following soon. So let's sit by the fireplace and read these letters, shall we? No names please!
Please remember that these are just letters. We print all confirmations and denials, as you know!
You might want to look into those. Websites down, all numbers constantly busy, no returned emails.
Yes, it does seem the web sites for these two magazines are out of commission. With the news today that 43 Las Vegas casino hotels with rooms for less than $40 a night, these magazines may have rolled their last dice.
MAGNET magazine is on hiatus and they do not know when they will be able to get another print edition out.
RE: Motorcycle Magazines Near The EdgeLots of bad news for several of the motorcycle magazines these days.
Wonder how long a few of them have to ride?
I’d add a few to your watch list in this order of decline:
Barnett’s Cycle (just dropped from 10 issues a year to
2 Wheel Tuner
And I’d keep an eye on the once all-powerful and V-Twin. They are now combining their circulation and passing it off as “real” to advertisers and not mentioning the blend.
Akin to the niche hot rod and performance car magazines which have been picked off in the past year, these titles are primo targets for El Reaper.
