Australian Print Magazine published by Diverse Enterprises, Ferntree Gully, Victoria and edited by Geoffrey Dale; six issues, undated, between March 1996 and November 1997. It had both a web presence as well as the printed version, which was a slim A5 booklet, usually of around 80 pages. The website promised to run new stories in advance of their publication in the magazine. In practice the magazine had only a few new stories and misguidedly it focused on early material, even to the point of serializing Edgar Allan Poe's 1835 story "Hans Phaal" in its first three issues. There were also story reprints by John Jacob Astor and George C Wallis amongst others, whilst the new short stories were brief and generally unrewarding. It is surprising the magazine lasted as long as it did. [MA]
