Kasterborous Magazine in Print!

Since we first started working on Kasterborous Magazine many, many months ago, our Doctor Who spinoff magazine has grown beyond its original design into what we can only describe as an uncontrollable beast. But uncontrollable in a nice way.

Although we had intended to publish in print initially, it soon transpired that a pre-order system wouldn’t enable us to find the funding we needed (even with Kasterborous advertising revenue factored in)for an independently produced magazine, which is why we temporarily announced a digital-only release. The first release in PDF form has done well, selling around 100 copies, and today we can finally announced the availability of our print version!

Kasterborous Magazine Issue 1!

 

In case you forgot (or you’re new to Kasterborous Magazine) here is the complete list of contents for issue 1:

  • Elton Townend-Jones’ Enlightenment – how should Doctor Who’s 50th be celebrated?
  • Never a Doctored Word with the Valeyard– the Doctor’s alter ego sets the world to rights.
  • Interview: Illustrator Paul Hanley – popular artist reveals his inspirations and plans.
  • The Shape of… The TARDIS – the real star of Doctor Who, the iconic time machine.
  • Crash of Elysium – Tom Macrae discusses his audacious live Doctor Who play.

    Great news! Although digital fanzines are fine as stopgaps, they’re useless for archiving. If that fanzine Peter Capaldi had written for back in the mid-1970s was only ever on digital, we’d likely have never seen that one article turn up after he was cast the Doctor (ditto his Radio Times letter). So it’s great that Kasterborous will be able to have a permanent print version of its magazine.


  2. Indeed it is! We’re taking advantage of a special offer that we’re passing on to make it possible this week, however, so anyone reading this, don’t miss out.
