Fantasy Magazines vs. Fantasy Subscription Sites

Mags are cheap (about $6), whether good or bad. They can be read while at work, or outside the home. I can only access a site at home.

Sites offer daily updates, which of course is the great advantage over mags. The negative is the cost, and the availability to get to them.

Have done both, since i like to see what people are saying. Sites are by far better, if the costs don't bother a person.

Magazines are easier to keep track of, and often organized in a more readable fashion. Sometime they are cheaper too.

Still, you need to mix up your outdated reading with up-to-date articles. I am not a big fan of paying internet sites for information that I believe I am capable of ascertaining on my own.

Why choose at all? This doesn't have to be an either/or situation.

Even if a particular magazine is total crap, it's still fun to read. The same goes for websites....free, or otherwise.

I only get mags for fun reading (the john or travel/flying). For information that I use for drafting, I like the internet for up-to-date stuff. You will find some of the best information right here at the cafe FOR FREE. Here is a link to another post at the cafe that also has tons of great free sites with FREE rankings.
