Private Frazer’s Doomed Magazines

June 19, 2018

Epitaph

Filed under: magazines,PPA — privatefraser @ 10:45 pm

Several years since I finished posting anything on this blog, time for a coda.

Look around you – count the titles that still exist, look at what’s closed, consider how the Pisspoor Publishing Association is now gutted and enfeebled – and tell me that all those years ago I wasn’t right.

The epitaph is Robert Conquest’s (as retold by Kingsley Amis): “I told you so, you fucking fools”.

  1. “The doom is come upon us,” said the Lord of PPA.

    Hard to argue with your points: the magazine industry that is left looks precious little like it looked even five years ago.

    Enjoy your doomed retirement.
