I'm familiar with many of the contributers to the mag and posts of theirs on their respective blogs and in OSR forms. Much of what I've seen of theirs is pretty cutting OSR stuff so given the level that AS&SH brings to the table you can bet I'll be ordering a copy. I'm not sure about back issues. If this is anything like the local fanzines I write for then it might be a limited run thing. All in all this looks pretty damn good.
 This looks like a really nice little publication! 
Very excited to see this.
