North American Amiga Computing Subscribers To Be Offered Amazing Computing/Amiga Magazine

August 23, 1997, PiM Publications Inc. announced today they have made an agreement with IDG Media of the UK to offer Amiga Computing subscribers Amazing Computing/Amiga Magazine to fulfill their subscriptions. Don Hicks, Managing Editor for Amazing Computing stated, "We felt the history of IDG's involvement with the Amiga as well as our own long-time commitment to the Amiga market made this an honor as well as our duty to step in and provide all North American Amiga users a continued professional source to Amiga information."

Ian Bloomfield, Amiga Computing Publisher, stated, "After 117 issues, Amiga Computing has sadly closed. However, we are proud to know that Amazing Computing/Amiga will continue to speak to all Amiga users with the same journalistic responsibility that has made Amiga Computing famous. We wish Gateway 2000 and Amiga International Inc. all the best."

Don Hicks also stated, "Amiga Computer subscribers will be offered an assortment of other publications from IDG in a letter being sent with their October (last) Amiga Computing issue. However, none of the other publications being offered are Amiga-based. We wanted to offer these Amiga users an opportunity to stay within the Amiga marketplace."

Amazing Computing/Amiga to maintain advertising rates for current advertisers.

A representative of PiM stated, "Although we are increasing our current subscription base, we will not increase advertising rates to current Amazing advertisers at this time. When AmigaWorld closed, PiM cut Amazing Computing's full page ad rates in half in order to stabilize the marketplace and maintain an outlet for Amiga users, dealers, and developers. We believe the current situation is similar and we want to do all we can to keep Amiga developers actively producing for the Amiga market."
