Would really like to find some older issues of both Maximum PC and Boot Magazine (if anyone is still around who remembers that). If you have any in decent condition I'd be happy to buy them from you for a reasonable price + shipping. I have a few but missing many and I'm on this kick of wanting a complete collection. Doubt I will get there but figured I'd try :)

Probably no older than 2001 or 2002...so whenever Boot started (mid 90's perhaps) until then. PM or reply here -- thanks!

I know that there are a couple of forum members who have a complete collection but I don't think any of them would sell. ;)

I had a complete set from the first Boot through MPC all the way to 2002 ... sold it as a set when I moved across the country.

You never know .. someone else might be willing to part with their old mags for a similar reason.

Yeah, not to be wishing anything bad for anyone but was hoping to find someone who needed to part with a collection for one reason or another. Good to know there are at least a few around here to who have complete collections. I should have paid more attention since I got every single issue from the Boot days and on. Hindsight is 20/20 I guess.

Thanks for the response.

Yeah, this is a great resource to read through some of them. I just wish they had the older issues and Boot Mag on there as well. I've emailed Maximum PC a few times about this and they said they would "look into it" but I'm not holding my breathe.

Thanks though.

It's a shame you didn't ask this in October of 2009. I was moving from apartment to apartment and ultimately sent all my old BOOTs and MPCs to the recycling center.

I too, am looking for back issues to complete my hardcopy collection (yes I know about the .PDF archives) and I have several duplicate back issues to swap if anybody has any. I only need 8 issues to complete my Max PC and 11 issues to complete Boot (doubt that will happen)

I'd be looking for some very early issues -- first year at least. Let me take a look at my stash and see exactly where it starts/stops.

Let me know if you'd be willing to part with any. Appreciate it.

I'm sure we can come to an understanding. I'd rather have them searchable, OneNote. Many times I cut up a mag or book and scan. My scanner does duplex at 30 pages a minute. Don't worry I have not hacked up MaximumPC magazines.

My Wife has suggested that I slim out my magazine collection :cry: , which includes almost every Maximum PC since inception, and some late Boot magazines as well. If anyone is looking for some or all, please send me a message!
