According to Editor and Publisher, Garden & Gun (which we’ve posted about before) has been voted the 2nd hottest new magazine launch of 2007 by the Media Industry Newsletter. Cited are its “enterprising concept” and “top editorial team.” I’m always thrilled when new magazines make it. I’m a magazine editor, after all—constantly taunted by my more rabid blogger/webdaily friends who claim that print periodicals just don’t know they’re dead. But having a magazine with garden in the title named a hot launch is even better. That’s the good news.
The bad? Yeah, I know it’s supposed to be a cool mag, but I could do without the gun part. (A free subscription might change my mind.)
