To the loyal members of the Mountain Gazette Tribe

To the loyal members of the Mountain Gazette Tribe,

By now many of you have heard that we’ve temporarily suspended the printed edition of Mountain Gazette. Please be assured we are working hard to make sure this isn’t the end of an era. It’s a bump in the road as we navigate a very difficult publishing landscape. Mountain Gazette has an incredible history, publishing a lengthy list of impressive works by the likes of Edward Abbey, Charles Bowden, Hunter S. Thompson, John Nichols and Mary Sojourner, and we want to make sure the legacy continues.

With that in mind, we are going to continue publishing new stories regularly on our website, As you know, the MG Rolodex includes an incredible list of writers, photographers, and artists, and we plan to continue to utilize their talents. While a digital magazine doesn’t offer the same experience as the printed issue, it does allow us to include longer stories that aren’t confined by page lengths.

Enough of the silver lining. We realize this isn’t ideal, but it’s the best we can offer right now. So please stick with us. We are encouraging readers to sign up to receive our email newsletters and to follow us on Facebook, so we can stay in touch about what is going on at Mountain Gazette online, as well as how things are progressing with the possible next iteration of the printed edition.

  1. Glad it’s not gone, but a computer on your lap will never substitute pieces of paper in your hands. Never.

    As a long time paying subscriber, perhaps it’s time to stop producing at a high volume free-paper level?

    p.s. Can I have free hat or something since it sounds like the next year of subscriptions isn’t coming?

  2. Well, this sucks to learn!! I very much prefer the good ‘ol hold- it- in- yer- hands magazine, and looked forward to seeing a new issue whenever I stopped by the local REI, but these are strange and vastly different times and you guys gotta do what ya gotta do to keep the mag going. Please, please don’t let MG fade away!!! Jeez, now I feel kinda guilty for not buying a subscription…….

  3. My head spins. For 35yrs since my unfulfilled subscription was sold to a national slick, I have mourned the demise of Mountain Gazette as a tragic loss to paper, text, and image. Yesterday, I learn by vague hint in HCN that you may *not* have been gone all these years. WTF? Moments later I learn that indeed not, but now you are. Crap. I’m afraid that in the land of dialup, an online publication does not exist — even for those inclined to suffer a weak substitute. I have old GPIW catalogs I revisit for their literary merits greater than any online “magazine” I’ve encountered. Sorry. Feel free to drop a line if you should reenter the corporeal plane again one day.
