Focus Fanatic Magazine

I've been looking recently to buy the Focus Fanatic Winter of 2005. Unfortunately, I have been unable to locate the magazine. Does anyone know any informaiton about the mag, like if it stoped being circulated? I've also tried to locate a way to subscribe to the magazine but have failed. I'd appreciate any info you guys know.

Thanks.

I've heard that the new issue is coming out around March or April.

Once a magazine starts missing issues like that, it pretty much speaks for it's success. I'd be shocked to see another one out although apparently there's suppose to be one coming in spring.....

I know it's all about the bottom line but when those FF mags hit the stands, they are usually off the shelf in a few weeks.
So, I'm not sure what the deal is. People are buying them and you can't find them within several weeks after their initial mag release hit the stands.

They originally planned to do three a year, basically quarterly , but no winter issue. So we should see another one in a month or two.

If I remember, I thought they were going to see how the last 2 issues sold and then make a decision on to make the mag monthly.
On that info, you would think that the mag would be monthly because when all the Mustang 5.0 mags are still on the stands, all the FF mags are gone.

I'm getting the feeling that they don't have the staff or want to get them to dedicate fulltime to the FF mag because the Mustang 5.0 is their primary mag and the same people write the FF mag.

Oh well, it's a nice gesture that they want to do the FF mag anyway and we should be glad there is something for the Focus.

A lot of the times the store doesn't even carry FF mag.. that's why they are not on the shelves, at least in my area.

In my area, when the FF mag is released, I can find it at Barnes and Noble, Walmart, Fred Meyer, my local mag stand on the corner and some mom/pop convenience stores.
Usually within 3-4 weeks, they are all gone.
They are stated on the FF mag to stay on stands for like 6-8 weeks after they hit the stands.
Up here, once they hit the stands, they are gone quickly.
