Loved my first issue!

Just received my first issue this past week and could not put it down. The story on biking and beer in Belgium was a great read. Too bad your pub is only quarterly. I will follow online to get my fill until the next issue hits my door. Very high quality magazine - great job.

Glad you like it!

We're glad you like the issue! We will eventually publish 6 issue per year. Our paid advertising has to double from where it currently is to be able to add the 2 addition al issues per year.

I click on the cover of the magazine and nothing happens....and this is after I have successfully logged in. Also....it has been so long since I received any issue of yours I'd assumed you went out of business.
