Worked on RETROFUTURE 6 (rock edition) today, and finally has a finished version on CD ready to send over to the printers. They will have it towards the end of the week and from there on it usually takes three to four weeks for them to take care of business. So, things are moving along nicely and the plan to have this edition out in June is on track. A big thank you to Staffan Eriksson for his support in this final stage of getting things done.
This 44 page edition is the first of two jam packed magazines that sports 104 pages all together, and it has taken me six or eight months or something like that to get this far. The main edition, with a Tornado Blaze western cover, will follow in the fall, as previously stated. Still working on the finishing touches on that edition, but nearly everything is done.
RETROFUTURE 6 is my 100th publication, and it feels good to present this journey in some detail. And with Deep Purple MK4 on the cover of the rock edition (representing my Purple years as a fanzine publisher) it is full circle. If you are new to this blog, there is more on all this to find.
Looking forward to seeing this in print.
