Free Digital Copies

Long time no mag. The doors of XXC Magazine and xxcmag.com remain closed, however I did want to mention that if you visit the XXC Magazine page over at MagCloud.com (soon to be Blurb from what they say) digital copies of issues 5 through 18 are now free, as in they cost nothing to download and/or view online.

Please note: Any technical issues you have (you should have none) with obtaining and/or reading digital copies of the magazine is between you and MagCloud.com. I receive no money or benefits to pointing you to the editions that I have made free to view. They were just sitting there, not being read, so I figured I would share them at no cost to you. Any of the “news” in them is obviously out of date but some aspects of the mag still make for an interesting read.

Thanks,
