    I just received an email from Fangoria telling me my subscription will renew this weekend, so I cancelled it.

    A) Does anyone know if Fangoria is still putting out new mags with the trouble their parent company ran into?

    B) Has anyone heard any word of any upcoming issues?

    C) I'm not renewing at the cost they want when last time I used a promo code.

    If you're searching for a decent alternative, HorrorHound is a good affordable magazine.

    I've been subscribing to HorrorHound for years. They quickly became everything Fangoria used to be. Fangoria has been pretty bad since the mid-00s, but I keep getting them because I want to keep having every issue.

    Thanks for the link. It proves I'll wait to see what's coming before shelling out close to $100 for an unreliable fate.

    I just canceled my subscription recently as well. I didn't enjoy the revamped format and don't think I ever read a single issue all the way through. The outrageous price didn't help.

    Just got the same email and cancelled mine as well because of the price (subscribed with a promo code…) and the fact that I haven’t read a single issue from my subscription, the last one I received is actually still in the envelope. It looked like a nice magazine but I just never got around to checking any of them out…
