Official Stargate Magazine Closing Down

Official Stargate Magazine Closing Down
Jun 21st 2010 | Posted by michelle

The Official Stargate Magazine will cease publication after its September/October 2010 issue, its 36th, according to an announcement in the July/August issue of the magazine (see image at right). The glossy, color magazine is produced in London by the science fiction publisher Titan Magazines and has been released bi-monthly for nearly six years. The magazine started while Stargate: SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis were still on the air, and now will be outlived by Stargate Universe.

Its issues have been rich in photos, interviews, analyses, retrospectives, and news, although much of the latter has repeated what was already available on-line.

Titan Magazines is part of Titan Publishing, and its sister company Titan Books publishes the Stargate novels. There is no word from the company on why the magazine’s run is ending. Given the current difficult market for print media and magazines in particular, the publication may be yet another victim of the economic times.

If we hear more, we’ll announce it here. Back orders of the magazine may be purchased here at Titan Magazines.

Just another bit of bad news for Stargate fans and another reason we have got to find our voice.

Not good news at all... and I agree that the fandom needs to step up with a unified voice to be heard. We all need to be supportive of the franchise and the few products that are available... especially now, so DVDs, novels, etc should be supported.

Thats bad, not only will it hurt the fandom it will hurt the show, but I agree fans should support and stand up for the DVDs, novels, etc.

Really sad! I actually have most of the magazines except this past issue and another one somewhere (don't have money at the moment to spend on my fandom!). :( :(
