Sub Rosa Issues Compiled Contents

I’ll try and keep this up to date as new issues are released. It’s mainly a personal resource for me now for the older material as the Atlas Forums hosts a thread of reviews which encapsulates the contents, albeit in a less didactic fashion.

Published by Distant Lands Publishing (2010 – present)

The current incarnation of later issues are the products of the fertile minds of Mark Lawford and Ben MacFarland (who share editorial and creative duties)

Before the Rose: Hermes Portal / Ars Mag

For those of you interested in older fanzine articles, the compiled contents of the 15 issues of Sub Rosa’s predecessor, Hermes Portal (2001-2005, edited by Eric Kouris) can be found over at Eric’s old site. Although dealing mainly with ArM4, all the past issues have been made available as free PDF downloads and there are a load of good ideas to be found.

Also, I don’t speak French, but if you do or if you employ  Google Chrome’s Translate function you might be able to access the old French fanzine, Ars Mag, published up until 2001 IIRC, also by Eric Kouris, but the link appears to be broken currently.
