For the last few days I've been scanning images and building up text and finally have loaded a new blog dedicated to a science fiction, fantasy and horror magazine called Auguries which I edited and published between 1983 and 1994. I did it purely to encourage new writers and latterly artists; most issues were produced before the advent of the home computer, though Amstrad had an influence in the early 90s; it was in the days before the internet and publishing packages. Sadly it died due to the cost of printing and paper and the lack of that most precious commodity, time. Maybe the future for new magazines is POD via Lulu or similar.
