  • ACG in Europe ?

    I was wondering (again !!!)...
    I have been looking around here in the newspaperstores for an ACG magazine, but until now havn't been able to find one...
    Can I purchase the ACG magazine here in continental Europe? Or is the distribution of it limited to the US?

          I picked up my first issue in Stockholm, in store that sold just about any magazine there is.

          I am now on some kind of slow boat subscription with at least one month delay. I would have thought that the convoys over the Atlantic would have starterd to run smoother now when the Kriegsmarine and their pesky subs no longer is a problem...

                Yes it comes to Europe. It even gets to Portugal. LOL!
                You just have to be close to a good place. Plus, I'm sure there's a lot of people that have just decided to sign it.

                  My subscription to my Dutch address works just fine now, but before that I had frequent and sometimes long discussions with book sellers in the Hague, quite a cosmopolitan city where most expats in the Netherlands live.
                  All tried to explain me why getting this magazine was so difficult. ABC (American Book Centre) in the Hague promised to try but I haven't checked recently as my subscription works just fine (knock wood).

                    Sorry I missed this conversation until just now.

                    We are sold in most European countires (and Australia) but it is fairly limited distribution.

                    Mainly we would be in newsstands (I think they are called newsagents in the UK) that specialize in carrying International magazines and maybe an espcecially good bookstore.

                    Due to the high cost of shipping heavy magazines around the world by the time they reach other countries they are priced too high for the local market. This is a barrier to magazines being sold in far away countires in general.

                    If you tell me what city you are in I can get back to you in a couple of days and tell you whether there is a store in that city that carries us.

                    For international subscriptions (not including Canada)...it will take about an extra month to get to you due to all the extra transit time on ships etc. We do have an airmail option at an extra $10 cost I think.

                    Finally for International readers...don't forget we offer a digital subscription. I think it is $17.99. We offer this mainly for International readers as it allows you to get the issue the minute it comes out and there is no expensive charges for delivery etc... I know that digital maagzines do not appeal to everyone...mostly younger reads. But one nice feature they offer (in additon to being cheaper and fast delivery) is that they are fully searchable!

                        Unless you have a certain mimimum press run... printing is very expensive as there is a large fixed cost for just turning on the press. So you really need to have say a 10,000 run at the mimimum to make it economical.

                        The ideal way publsih in other countries is to find a local magazine publisher who licences your magazine content for local production and distribution because in addition to printing the magazine there is a variety of other infratructure that is needed to conduct business in a country. Just one example...I would need a person to negotiate with the various magazine sellers to carry us and arrange for billing, handling of returns, etc...

                        For example if I could find a UK magazine publisher who would like to sell ACG in the UK I could give them the content, they would publish it and just give me a small percentage of the revenues. That is the traditional way international editions are handled.

                          Glad to announce that ABC in the Hague (and probably its outlet in Amsterdam as well) has started to sell ACG in the Netherlands.
