Gutted. Got an email from Imagine saying about the bookazine, even went to their eMag site (http://www.greatdigitalmags.com/view/re ... e-classics) and clicked on the link which took me to the RG app but alas nothing. Just have to be patient and wait 24 hours as Darren did say Saturday. But due to the website/link i thought it was available digitally now

Yeah the annual has been out for a couple of weeks in the shops now. I also noticed in the shops a second edition of the Atari book. Not sure if there any new features in there, page wise seems to be around the 250 mark.

Arcade book arrived today, nice surprise as you can never tell what the crazy xmas post will do.

Looks another great book, will be getting the Clear covering treatment (as they all do) before I tuck in properly :)

Hi Darran,

This still isn't in any of the WHSmith's I've been (several) in the Lancashire area. Is it possible to raise the issue with Imagine? I would think they would be motivated to look into why this is occurring, as it may be harming sales (I tend not to buy from the Imagine website now - too many issues with things getting damaged in the post, whereas if I get it from WHSmith's, I can just select one in excellent condition :D ).

Picked up three Amiga Bookazine's (revised editions) from WH SMITH's for 85p each! Apart from slight damage to the covers and the barcode blacked out there are almost perfect. Thought I would grab them for anyone here looking for one.

Yes, there is, but apparently you can only buy mag issues or subscriptions, at present.
