OBSOLETE! #8 IS HERE!


The latest edition of the OBSOLETE! is hot off the press! The theme of this issue is “Obsolete Media: It's Alive!”, and features articles on making art with ancient computers, low-power FM radio, “Numbers Stations” and the history of “Dazzle” camouflage. ObMag #8 is also packed with poetry, comics, art and fiction, featuring original work by Mick Farren and an exclusive preview of Christian Schoon's new SciFi novel Zenn Scarlett

Please help support OBSOLETE!

OBSOLETE! Magazine is at a turning point. With the help of supporters like you, we have given away more than 14,000 copies of issues 1-8 over the last 3 years. Unfortunately, the “Free Press” model is no longer sustainable for us. Now, we need to raise some real money to keep the paper alive, and we are putting it in the hands of you, the readers. By using Kickstarter and the “All or Nothing” approach, we will raise the funds to make the next four issues possible– or we will cease to publish in our current format.

You can pledge by going to our Kickstarter page. Rewards include subscriptions to the next four issues, t-shirts, books, newspaper carrier bags and more. If we do not reach our goal, you will not be charged for your pledge.

EARLY SUPPORTER SPECIAL: For the first 20 people to pledge at $10 or more, you will receive a free copy of #8 mailed to your door (or pdf if you prefer). If the campaign is unsuccessful, you will not be charged for your pledge, but you will still receive your free copy.
