LIFETIME Subscription to FANGORIA Magazine
 
I just came across this interesting offer from Fangoria.

It would take you about 7.5 years before you started getting issues for free. About 4 years if you buy from magazine stands.

That's actually not a bad deal if you feel confident in the future of print media.

If it included digital copies of all past issues, I'd consider it.

Man, I haven't looked/read a Fango in 10+ years.

Sounds like Fangoria should be belly up before the end of next year.

Only a complete idiot douche bag would fall for this.

$400? :lol: Yeah right... you'd have to really love the 'zine to waste that kind of money and expect a return years later. It would be far safer to just continue with yearly subscriptions.

I love paper magazines, but many are sadly starting to go the way of the dinosaurs.

My last subscription was only $33.00. To be fair though I've subscribed to the magazine since 1981 so a deal like this would have paid off long ago.

As someone who has worked in the literary business, the future of all print magazines is seriously grim.
Pity as I still like perusing issues of Fangoria, Rue Morgue and Horrorhound once in awhile.

The last Fangoria I bought was in 2006. The one with Slither on the cover.

I used to love them as a kid but they cost too much these days for me to give a damn.

That's a huge problem which discourages me from buying more.

No kidding! I picked up the "Giant Size Halloween Special" issue with Roger Corman on the cover and the price had gone up to $10.99! And that issue was no bigger than any other Fangoria issue - it actually felt thinner than most (lower quality paper stock?) If that's the regular new price then that lifetime special offer would pay off even sooner than expected. :eek:

When did Fangoria's price get so high anyway? Rue Morgue used to be the most expensive but I assumed that was because it was "imported" from Canada. HorrorHound is a veritable bargain at $6.99 an issue.
