The Magazine: The Complete Archive

25.00

The Magazine published nearly 300 non-fiction stories across its 28 months in existence as a fortnightly electronic periodical. We produced 58 issues from October 2012 to December 2014 —over 500,000 words from 150 authors.

This entire body of commissioned work has now been put into a high-quality, DRM-free ebook in all the popular electronic-reader and software formats—it's 1,800 pages long in PDF format! Purchase includes PDF, EPUB, and MOBI.

The direct download packages the EPUB and PDF versions (300 MB). Because the Kindle-compatible MOBI version is another 270MB, you'll receive a separate link to download that after purchase. (The MOBI file has to be sideloaded via USB to a Kindle, a simple process; it's too large to use the Wi-Fi email option.)

Sales tax is added for Washington State residents.

This ebook collection covers researchers "crying wolf," learning to emulate animal sounds; DIY medical gear, making prosthetics and other tools available more cheaply and to the developing world; a fever in Japan that leads to a new friendship; saving seeds to save the past; the plan to build a giant Lava Lamp in eastern Oregon; Portland's unicycle-riding, Darth Vader mask-wearing, flaming bagpipe player; a hidden library at MIT that contains one of the most extensive troves of science fiction and fantasy novels and magazines in the world; and far, far more.

The proceeds from selling this ebook will be used to help create our next project: a new magazine and Web site about vintage technology — stuff that's no longer made — that's been sustained, revived, or re-created, and about the people who love it. It will span everything from old farm equipment to toys to analog photography to pinball machines to videogames.

The working title is Old & New, and you can sign up for our announcement list to get more information about it when we fire it up, or follow our blog. As with The Magazine, we will pay all contributors and pay them well. Your purchase of this ebook is the part of our plan for this next venture, following the success of a Kickstarter campaign earlier this year that paid for the production of the complete archives ebook.
