********************** FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE ************************
By now many in the Amiga community may have seen at least one issue of The
Amiga Informer. If you have, you know that The Informer is a publication
dedicated to promoting the continued use and application of the Amiga
computer. If you haven't seen one, now is the time to take a look.
We have been in publication for nearly 16 months and have continued to
grow. Some of you might recall that the first Informer contained only 8
pages. In contrast, the soon-to-be released issue 8 will contain 32 pages.
We have continued to grow in spite of a questionable future by providing
readers with a useful resource free of fluff and full of fact. We take
pride in our publication and the service and responsiveness we give to our
subscribers. We are also proud of the fact that we are the only North
American commercial Amiga publication that is produced entirely using Amiga
In the past, The Informer was distributed primarily through select Amiga
dealers that included a complimentarily issue with each Amiga order. This
served to introduce The Informer to the community at large, letting them
know we were available and that we were committed to the future. While
this method of distribution served us well, it is time for a change. Since
our subscriber base has continually grown, and we have gained retail sales
partners among Amiga dealers, we will be limiting the number of issues we
distribute as complimentary copies. While we will continue to distribute
some complimentary issues through some dealers, you will find they will no
longer be as easy to obtain. Complimentary issues will continue to dwindle

We at The Informer believe the Amiga will soon enter a new era. After many
years of mismanagement and failed opportunities, the Amiga is finally in
the hands of a company that looks as thought they will make some good
decisions. Our aim is to grow with this new wave of Amiga computing and
continue to provide our readers with the most useful, informative and
detail orientated publication around. Our hope is that you will ride that
wave with us.
