O-Sport magazineA sample copy of O-Sport magazine showed up in my mail yesterday.
I only had time to flip through the pages last night. It looked very good. "Great, I'll look at it at lunch and then write about it on my page." That was my plan. But, Mary wanted to take it to work and read it during lunch. So my review will have to wait.
I can say this much:
Just flipping through the pages gave me a good impression. I was impressed by the number of maps, the titles of the articles (several of them looked interesting), and the high quality of the photography. The issue I have includes a translation of a chapter one of my favorite O' books "Vaegen till framgaang" by Kent Olsson. This looks like a great magazine.
It must be good if Mary wants to read it at lunch! Mary is known to read "good books" -- i.e. books that are well written and get good reviews in the NY Times.
Right now it is a bit difficult to get a subscription in the U.S. There aren't any U.S.-based subscriptions agents. I'm hoping that will change soon. Paying the subscription directly isn't convenient (the publishers are in Europe and can't take credit cards. I've emailed the British agent (they take credit cards) to enquire about ordering a U.S. subscription through them.
Once I get the mag back from Mary, I'll read a few articles and write what I think. posted by Michael | 12:57 PM
