Issue 24 of the ST+ disk magazine will be its last. After two years of releasing the monthly disk magazine Dave Hollis has decided to call it a day.
It’s not the end of an era though as Dave has decided to switch over to producing a monthly paper based fanzine instead.
Commencing from issue 25, the ST+ Fanzine will be an A5 publication carrying the same sort of things as it’s disk based predecessor.
The ST+ Fanzine is due for launch in February at a cover price of around £1.50
