RISC OS magazine Riscworld acts to attract new subscribers: Editor Aaron Timbrell explains all

By Chris Williams. Published: 9th Feb 23:17:27 | Permalink | Printable

Earlier last week, Riscworld editor Aaron Timbrell made a bold announcement to the RISC OS world. Riscworld is a CD based magazine that is growing in popularity as an alternative to the paper RISC OS magazines available. Acorn User is one such paper magazine and Aaron has appealed to AU subscribers to try Riscworld instead.

"If you subscribe to RISC World volume 2 then you can get the whole of RISC World volume 1 for only 10ukp. So you could have 2 years worth of the magazine for as little as 27.90 ukp" announced Aaron, who also runs RISC OS software company iSV Products. We spoke to Aaron about his renewed effort to attract more subscribers to RiscWorld. In response Aaron had this to say:

RISC World is the CD-ROM magazine for all users of Acorns and other RISC OS computers. Published bi-monthly every issue is packed with articles, reviews, comment and more. Not only that but because RISC World comes on a CD we include all the software we mention in our articles.

Volume 1 Special
Normally RISC World is published every 2 months, however for volume number 1 we have decided to make RISC World even better value for money, all subscribers will receive 7 issues in the first year, rather than the normal six. Issue 7 will be a full issue in itself but will also contain the full set of issues 1 to 6 as well! That means that each issue of RISC World costs only £2.55, you would have to be mad to miss out!

Subscribe to RISC World volume 2 and get volume 1 for only 10!

Yes, thats right. If you subscribe for the 2nd volume of RISC World you can have the complete first volume for only 10 (UK). The special 2 year subscription costs just £27.90 for UK residents and £30.90 for subscribers outside the UK.

Disk World
Not only does the Disc World part of the magazine include demonstration products and the latest PD and Shareware releases but also every copy comes with a full commercial product FREE! In the last few issue we have included a number of exclusive applications including a fully working 3 month version of TextEase, a full time limited version of DrawWorks New Millennium and much much more!

Not Convinced?
In order to show potential subscribers what each issue of RISC World is like we have produced a special on-line edition. This includes a selection of articles from the first five issues. This special edition of RISC World is the same size as a normal subscription edition. You can find this on line edition at www.riscworld.co.uk. If you dont subscribe then this is some of what you have missed over the last 6 issues:

  • Complete time limited version of Textease Studio (including file saving) as well as an introduction to using the package.
  • Complete time limited version of DrawWorks New Millennium (including file saving).
  • A new full version of HTML3 the HTML authoring package.
  • Demos of the latest and greatest games including The Chaos Engine, Destiny,
  • Wizards apprentice, Spheres of Chaos and many more.
  • Full contents of the comp.sys.acorn.announce newsgroups.

  • Hardware reviews, including the Kinetic RISC PC upgrade, the APDL Turbo card and more.
  • Sneak previews of new computers, RISCWorld even manages to print full reviews before other magazines have even previewed machines.
  • Making websites for use with WAP mobile phones.
