theLogBook.com’s downloadable magazine-style e-zine is back! In the finest tradition of such bygone-but-much-loved publications as Starlog, Future Life, and Electronic Games, theLogBook.com ‘zine takes a deeper look at the shows, games, and universes you love, while also slipping in a few amazing looks at the discoveries we’re making in the real world along the way.
There are even articles by Rob O’Hara (of Commodork and Throwback Reviews fame), Rob Heyman (TrekCore), and mouth-watering Kaiju cooking tips with Robert Parson! A lot of the material in the ‘zine is exclusive to the ‘zine.
This issue weighs in at a whopping 74 full-color pages, a 60 meg download that’ll take you back to the heyday of the early ’80s genre-specific periodical. There’s even a link on one of the interior pages to download an exclusive Kasatochi chiptune album. We hope you enjoy it.

If you like what we’re doing here, share, re-tweet, tell your friends, and spread the word. It’s a huge amount of work, but there’s nothing quite like the magazine format to tackle topics in-depth – and let’s face it, we miss the days when magazines actually existed on something other than the web. If there’s enough support for this issue of the ‘zine… we might do another one sooner than two years from now!
Sure, you’re saying, lots of people have issues, but that doesn’t mean I want to download them. But our issues are really cool! They combine the best of the stuff you can already find on theLogBook.com with brand new content exclusive to the ‘zine. You don’t have time to peruse the entire site? That’s cool – we totally understand. It’s a big site. Our occasional free downloadable ‘zine brings you the best we have on offer in a slick, magazine-style package you can print out or download onto a tablet or e-reader and take with you. So go ahead… leave your issues behind for a little while and enjoy ours.
