The Official Stargate Magazine will cease publication with Issue #36 (September/October 2010), the editors announced in the latest issue. It will mark six years of the magazine, which launched in the fall of 2004.
Published by Titan Magazines, the magazine has long provided interviews, behind-the-scenes looks at production, news, games, and other special features to fans of Stargate SG-1, Atlantis, and Universe.
The final issue will include interview with Lou Diamond Phillips (“David Telford”), Robert Picardo (“Richard Woolsey”), director Peter DeLuise, producer John G. Lenic, SGU consultant John Scalzi, and military advisor Angeligue MacDonald. That’s on news stands at the end of August.
The magazine’s closure is likely due to the difficult economic climate, especially with continual competition from the Internet. (GateWorld partnered with Titan to provide the 6-page “Advanced Telemetry” section of the official magazine for its first several years.)
GateWorld attempted to reach the publishers for comment on the decision, but inquiries were not returned by press time.
