I'm pleased to tell you that contrary to some mistaken rumors which seem to be going around, Antic Magazine is still being published monthly and absolutely has not cut back to six times a year! Anything different that you may have heard via word of mouth or online is simply untrue.
Some confusion seems to have resulted from a recent Antic policy change which was explained in a mailing to all subscribers and is also reflected in the magazine's current subscription ads. As of July 1989, the only kind of Antic subscription being offered is a six-month magazine-plus-disk combination for only $28 -- the same price as the previous 12-month magazine-only subscription. To simplify this changeover, existing subscribers were converted to six-month magazine-plus-disk subscriptions (with bonus issues, if applicable).
However, in our eighth year of reliable service to the 8-bit Atari community, Antic continues publishing 12 times yearly. The new $28 six-month magazine-plus-disk subscription is simply the best value we have ever offered to Atarians. Now each month you get a two-sided disk crammed full of useful and entertaining software, along with the best ongoing source of valuable Atari information, at a price that anybody can afford.
