Announcement   Announcement : Total Amiga Magazine to Cease Publication
   posted by rhino on 7-Apr-2007 14:30:31 (4582 reads)
South Essex Amiga Link regrets to announce that our popular print Amiga magazine, Total Amiga, is to cease publication. Issue 26, which has just been completed, will be the final issue of the magazine and is due to be published on 23rd April 2007. The closure has come about because our editor and publisher, Robert Williams, has decided to step down after over eight years working on the magazine.



Total Amiga has built up a large and supportive readership so we want to ensure our subscribers continue to receive a quality Amiga magazine in English. To this end, SEAL have come to an agreement with the German magazine Amiga Future that they will fulfill outstanding Total Amiga subscriptions. To do this Amiga Future will launch a new English edition of their magazine in July 2007.

Amiga Future English will be a translated version of the current German Amiga Future. The magazine will be similar in format to Total Amiga with an A4 size, about 52 pages and colour covers. While Total Amiga is published approximately quarterly, Amiga Future English will be published six times a year at the same time as the German edition. For further information please visit the Amiga Future English web site. Amiga Future are looking for additional translators to help with the production of the English edition, if you might be able to help please get in touch with them via their web site.

The transfer of subscriptions to Amiga Future will happen automatically; existing Total Amiga subscribers do not need to take any action.

We have enjoyed producing Total Amiga over the years and thank everyone who has contributed to the magazine in any way for their help. We would also like to thank everyone who has purchased or subscribed to Total Amiga for their support. If you are currently a subscriber, rest assured that we will do our utmost to ensure a smooth transition to Amiga Future. If you have any questions, we have added many questions and answers about the closure to our web site or feel free contact us (contact details are on the Total Amiga web site http://www.totalamiga.org).

Shame to see such a quality Amiga magazine close, my heartfelt thanks to the TA team for their hard work over the years and I hope the Amiga Future collaboration goes well.

Da Rude!

TA is (was) a great magazine and I just resubscribed a few weeks ago. Makes me sad to hear its closing but I hope for the best with Amiga future.

Thanks for making a great magazine! And I hope everyone gives Amiga Future a chance...

Sad news indeed, but I'm glad to see Amiga Future will step up.

Thanks for your effort over the last many years lads.

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for all the kind comments, they are much appreciated here.

I know this will have come as a shock, but we thought the best way was to work out a way forward for subscribers privately and only announce it when everything was worked out.

Thanks again for your support,

Robert

I am very sad to hear this news

I guess that my comment about the new #amiga-guide magazine no-longer really stands...

My sincere thanks go to the Total Amiga staff for putting together an excelent magazine. I accept this news with the same feeling I have when my dentist informs me that he has to pull a tooth. Something will be missing from now on.

Yes, this is a constructive way to look at this news. Thank God there is Amiga Future to carry on. I look forward to their handy work.

I hope Amiga Future will continue with the Canadian printing of the North American issues.

Not totally unexpected really.

Thank you to all the folk that worked to produce TA for so long, especially Robert, what you've managed to achieve with this magazine is nothing short of miraculous, and you should be VERY proud of your extremely hard work to produce such a great magazine in your free time for no gain at all, other than a labour of love for the Amiga computer.

Sad news to see the end of TA but thanks again for the read thus far.

Regards

Lee.

Robert: many, many thanks for your hard work over the years.

Other TA staff/writers/proof-readers etc: many, many thanks for your hard work over the years.

It would be great if some of the TA writers would continue to write articles/reviews and submit them to Amiga Future, for inclusion in the German and English magazines.

@Andreas: a few recent threads now seem to make sense! Good luck with Amiga Future (in German and English).
