As of April, full access to our archives will require a paid
subscription to The New Colonist. We have been self-funded for three
years now, and it is time to bring about some economic sustainability.
This will allow us to invest more time in both editing and production,
as well as begin paying our contributors, and will result in an
ever-better magazine for you, our readers, with more in-depth articles,
a more pleasing appearance, more photography, and many new features we
have not yet be able to implement.
Subscriptions prices are fairly modest: $24.95 for complete access to
everything for a year, along with special membership benefits such as
our paper quarterly, Urban Views (soon to debut), new subscriber-only
departments we have been planning, and discounts on eventual
sustainability-related products and New Colonist promotional items.
Those who subscribe before May 1 will pay only $12.99 for the first year.
FRONT PAGE STORIES AND FEATURES WILL ALWAYS BE FREE TO ALL. This
includes all City Pages, Feedback, Roadkill Bill, the forum, and more.

just like the roads across the earth. For actually there were no roads
to begin with, but when many people pass one way a road is made."
