'A new model for publishing has arrived: No advance, a cover price of under$10 but a much higher royalty rate for authors. It’s a transfer of risk from publishers to authors.

This magazine was never intended as a literary puma\ and, as a result, did not meet the funding criteria of the time. Rather, its purpose was to 'concentrate attention on the defence of literary property—the writer's business (Stephany Steggall, Status and Sugar, 2013), which is exactly what it did for the next 50 years.
