Crime Scene is DOA

I am devastated to learn that the current issue (no7) of Crime Scene Magazine is to be the final issue - check out my rave review of the first issue HERE.

I had a feeling that all was not well, when I picked up the latest issue as it comes in at only a hundred pages, and the features don't seem to be as in-depth as in the previous issues. The book reviews have also dwindled away to a few pages.

There is not another magazine like it on the UK stands, and I will miss the publication, and I wish the publishing team all the best in their future endeavours.

When a magazine of this quality fails to find a market, you have to wonder if the physical magazine market is dead in the water. For someone who regularly visits brick and mortar stores it is glaringly apparent that the news-stands are not as exciting as they once were.

Let's hope some other publisher steps in and takes over the title, as recently happened with Classic Rock Magazine.
