Missing magazine : Boot


Recommended Posts

The USA magazine Boot is missing from the database. It had 23 issues released from #1 Aug/Sep 1996 to issue #23 Jul/Aug 1998. At that time the magazine was renamed Maximum PC. All issues had a cd-rom. I do not know if there was a non cd-rom version. Issue 16 has 156 pages including the covers.

Not sure if this violates rules but nearly all issues can be found on Reddit posted by User: u/KnuckleSangwich

I was able to find every one except two (Issues #2 and #21)

Hello, I am the user "KnuckleSangwich" from Reddit who was referenced above. I'd love to get my scans of Boot Magazine uploaded here to Retromags. I scanned almost all issues of Boot in the past couple years, but I was missing 2 issues which I've recently been able to procure, so I'm happy to report that I'll soon be able to upload the complete set.

Is there a specific sub-forum for Boot Magazine? I looked through the list but I did not see one. Who should I reach out to in order to create this?

I'm not sure what happened to ckek. I too have been eagerly waiting for those last two issues so if you have them it'd be great if they were uploaded. As far as the other issues maybe you could reach out to him on reddit? I have them as well and can reach out if you don't want to. Maybe he'll see the posts here.

I meant I have the issues ckek posted to reddit not the missing two issues you have.

I also wanted to point out that of the google books Maximum PC collection there are two missing issues - Nov. and Dec issues from 1999. I've looked all over for these two issues and have been unable to find them anywhere. November 1999 is currently up on Ebay but is a bit higher priced than I feel comfortable paying.

I am here! The past few months have kept me far busier than expected, but I’ll make an effort to post up those issues this week.

That said, I did try to upload some content and magazine covers here a few months back and nothing would seem to save. I’m not sure if it was a permissions problem or what, but I’ll try again.

Last, I should have those Maximum PC issues already, but I’ll need to dig them out and then get them scanned. About 99% sure I have them, so no need to purchase if you want to save a buck 👍
