Focus Fanatic magazine

Does anyone know anything about Focus Fanatic Magazine? Is it still published?

I saw one issue about a year ago, but have been unable to find it since.

they don't seem to have a web site.

They don't have a website. The last issue was Summer 05, they skipped Fall and Winter, someone (I forget the source) said they were bypassing those but a Spring 2006 will come out.

It seems like bad mojo that they'd skip 2 issues, when they said they were gauging people's interest on the last couple ones. We will see, the Spring doesn't usually come until late April/May though, at least my spring 05 says display until sometime in June.

PRIMEDIA's the publisher, if you want to go to their website and see if there's a contact (or it's probably in the old ff issues) to see what's up.

yeah but if it says display until june, that's probably because they were releasing a new mag in june for jetfest.

Nah Jetfest wasn't in the next one, which was also the last one. It got released sometime in July IIRC, and said to display til October.

Do Borders and Barnes & Nobles usually carry it when it is out?

The only place I have seen it was in an airport in indianapolis.

I've only ever found mine at B&N. None of my Borders ever stock it, and I never see it at the supermarket in the book/mag section, or at convenience stores or anyplace. Some people report finding them int hose spots.

Most magazines try to get as much exposure as possible. This one seems to be a well kept secret.

Thanks for your help. I'll keep looking.

JUST WENT AND CHECKED OUT PRIMEDIA'S SITE AND THERE WASN'T A WHOLE LOT OF INFO THERE FROM WHAT I CAN SEE. MAYBE SOME ONE ELSE WILL HAVE BETTER LUCK LOOKING.

^^^ oh yeah, this is about thread 47 lately on this. No big deal. I'd be quite shocked to see the magazine again actually. Once they start missing issues, it's an obvious bad thing. They might put another one out, which should be very soon but I'm doubting it til I see it.
