  • Angela

    Good initiative. The best way to get info on mags that actually exist is to visit news stands e.g. in supermarkets regularly and write down the names of the titles on display. You can do it while shopping. Another way would be to approach the major mags distributors i.e. PDS, NMP and JETSAM. I don’t think they’d refuse to give you the list of their clients.

  • Allan Muleji

    Accurate, can we suggest other titles not mentioned here?

    Great job on compiling the list it has helped my research. Kindly add The Edition magazine
