I need the ZX Spectrum re-print!!!! - I think you guys under-estimated the sales for that one.
By the time I found out about it - it wasn't available anywhere!

I have the Spectrum/Commodore Bookazine and it is top notch, I also bought the MD/SNES issue and that was good too. In the case of the Speccy/C64 issue I wasn't aware of it's existence until several months later when I happened to chance upon a copy in York train station, it was only after a little research I found out it had been out for several months and that I had been very lucky to find it at all! I wanted the Atari issue but didn't have the conkers when I saw it and when I did I couldn't find it for love or money so a reprint of that would be nice. I agree that an Amiga/ST issue would be good, possibly a NES/Master System version too.

I missed out on Mega Drive book so would still really love to pick that up.

For anyone who missed the brilliant Atari book, here is my review of it:

I'm against this tbh as it will ultimately drive down the evil bay prices. I am considering selling some off at the mo. Could imagine possibly wait until..

A: I've made up my mind whether to sell or not.

B: if the result of A is "sell", that I have done so.

Cheers

Just went into the online store now, and it says it's available. I put one in my shopping cart. They may have made a mistake or perhaps have some extra stock...but at the moment it does say it's in stock. If anyone wants it I suggest getting it NOW :)

Darren- Just a quick Q...should Imagine go ahead with reprinting a few selected Bookazines, is it at all possible to have perhaps a preorder system in place so the folk that want a particular one can ensure they get it? :)

Yep! A sort of Kickstarter for reprints :mrgreen: And/or a preorder system, considering that those outside the UK can't even rely on WHSmith or similar stores :twisted:

Should really be no excuses for those that missed out. They stay around in Whsmith's for ages. I suggest doing some new ones before considering reprinting. A dedicated arcade one would be nice, covering hardware, companies and of course games. There have been a lot of bookazines covering consoles and computers, but not one for arcade systems.

This is a great idea.

I agree, an arcade bookazine would be fantastic.
