What's wrong with two magazines - especially if they are different. I dare say that quite a few RISC OS users are happy to subscribe to more than one magazine, assuming that it does offer interesting content and assuming that it is produced and deliviered.

As for shipping cost I agree with Sawadee since even to Germany it is already quite a bit more but on the other hand a well laid out paper magazine is better to read and especially you can do so anywhere. Despite the cost I did subscribe to Acorn Publisher since it was a very good magazine covering quite a few things I was interested in.

As to John Cartmells comments he should be *happy* for Louie to step in! That could give him the option officially drop Qercus instead of just not publishing it anymore. He could perhaps offer the subscribers still due the odd issue to get RISC OS Now instead by passing on the subscription fees to Louie.

As for the alleged losses John Cartmell mentioned to Louie: If RISC OS Now comes and is delivered regularly as planned then that will be a gain for all readers since it does arrive! The only one who might loose on this is John Cartmell having to return the subscription money already collected with nothing delivered but I dare say that that risk of loss of funds is there already due to the slight delay in delivering Qercus...
