Gumroad is a new e-commerce platform used by large and small artists in the music industry to distribute digital music; it’s also a good platform for e-books and other digital media. We’ve made our back catalog available here, each $2.99 issue is a zipped archive containing three popular file formats which support reading on virtually any device this side of an abacus.
Like every magazine, we’re looking for new platforms, new ways to distribute our content. We’d like to hear from you, if you have any ideas or feedback. Our bookstore is in the shop for upgrades at the moment, but we wanted to make sure the back issues continued to be available, so we thought we’d give Gumroad a shot.
For those who aren’t crazy about Paypal, Gumroad isn’t a Paypal company; Paypal based subscriptions have created issues for others in the past; for this reason we are looking into using Patreon for subscriptions in the future. Look for more info on that in the next few weeks.
Oh, and issue 225# remains free for the time being, so check that out.
