Inaugural Qercus issue delayedBy Chris Williams. Published: 4th Feb 2004, 23:34:28 | Permalink | Printable
Think positive spin, think positive spinMedia watch Publisher Finnybank have admitted that the first issue of Qercus will be late. When Qercus was born from the Acorn User and Acorn Publisher merger last December, everyone was boldly told to expect the inaugural issue to be delivered by mid-January.
Speaking to sympathising AcornEvolution, Qercus editor John Cartmell explained: "The first issue has been delayed. We had to re-align it to the Tau Press issues and then had to re-write because of items that were then out of date. Rather than a big jump to get us back in line we will be publishing at 3-4 week regular intervals until the magazine is at the start of the calendar month."
Details of forthcoming issues can be found here. It appears Qercus are planning to run reviews of PCs with VirtualRiscPC, UniPrint, Web Wonder, a Wimp programming series and more besides. Finnybank will also be cutting back on advertising in the magazine to make way for more copy.
Also, if you take out a subscription before Valentine's Day and claim you're an AcornEvolution reader, you can get last year's Acorn Publisher issues for an extra 15 quid.
