    Any recommendations on which back issues I should buy? (Are they all must-buys or are some better than others?)

    Thanks!

    Was Issue 4 the British issue? I waited too long it looks like to place an order.

    Why is it so expensive? $130 for 6 issues shipped to the US? Is each issue huge?

    I don't understand why they ship each magazine from Singapore instead of dispatching them here in the US - would significantly cut down costs and we wouldn't have to pay that much to get them here. Same goes for Revolution.

    I bought the last three in my local newsagents and they've all been claimed. With luck, I stand to make oooh a dollar each.

    Let's see how my proxy service works, if all goes well, I may offer it for future issues.

    I got lucky getting in on chobochobo's offer. I will ooze gratitude if it arrives intact. Not that I'd ask to be mailed each issue as they come out, but doing the math on his offer that comes out to $90 a year rather than $130. So either way, it's a nice deal.

    I will likely put up an offer on B&S for my recent copies of Mens Ex, Leon, etc. They are still in mint condition and I'm sure someone would like to see them.

    I don't know if chocobo is breaking even at $15, hopefully, he has done the sums. The magazine cost about 7-8 bucks and airmailing them would cost close to $9-14, not to mention the time and extra cost for some light packaging/ envelope. One courier even quoted me postage of USD23 to send the magazine to US and UK from Asia.

    Whatever it is, I think he is doing a great service to SF. [​IMG]

    LOL, yes I miscalculated. I just sent out 4 copies of the Rake. Airmail/ padded envelope/ magazine - I lost nearly 3.5usd each copy [​IMG] I have one copy left. Any takers for 20usd shipped? Suddenly the 130 usd subscription isnt' looking that bad after all.

    By coincidence, I just got my subscription copy of no6 through the post. Looks good and even heavier than the last one. If anyone still wants individual copies rather than a full subscription then I'm still happy to send at 130/6 usd per issue.
