Huh? Final issue of ACG?

I see on the top left of my screen that May 2015 will be the final issue of ACG. I was just getting back into reading it. Does anyone know anything about this?

It says final print issue but that it can be read online. Print media is increasingly shifting online - I guess it's another example of it.

As a contributing author, I was notified nearly a couple of months ago that the May 2015 issue would be the last. So, my last two of 55 articles, in the May issue for ACG, are a Battlefield Leader on General Eichelberger and a What Next General on Giap at Dien Bien Phu. I must say it was an enjoyable trip, and the interactive dimensions with excellent maps (one cannot fight a battle without maps) made the magazine unique in alternative military history.

My italics, nothing to worry about for us here. Sorry to hear it though - will digital subscriptions still be available?

Sad, I bought the first issue in an airport and read whenever I was in the states. Will continue to read the digital version.

Must be serious, as indicated by the complete lack of substantive responses from the forum admins. Silence these days is always an admission of serious problems.

I never "subscribe" to e-mags. To me, the real value of a magazine is part of its physical presence on my side table, there to picked up and perused at my leisure, set down briefly, resumed when I wish and where I wish, needing no batteries or internet connection and incapable of being altered or edited after it is published.

Magazines last for many decades, and contain additional information of historic value beyond their articles, while e-mags are subject to the whims of available storage space and electronic digital distortion. A magazine can be put into a footlocker and is still there, still ready to be read, fifty years later...or even longer.

Pick up an old National Geographic sometime, ignore the articles and read the advertisements for a wonderful look into the economic life and times of America in the past, what was important and what it cost back then. That's often of more interest than anything else to those who truly appreciate history in its entirety.
