Russ Lockwood, formerly operating as Lockwood Productions (publisher of Snappy Nappy), runs this online magazine service. By subscribing to MagWeb, users can read via the Web a number of military and gaming magazines.

Or, as the promotional material reads:

Megabytes of Military History and Gaming are Yours to Command!

MagWeb offers the full text and graphics of over a dozen history and gaming magazines (current and back issues), with an emphasis on military history. For a modest monthly fee--about what you pay for a fast food lunch--you'll get unlimited access to ALL our magazines, and we give discounts for half-year and year memberships. And we are adding more and more magazines throughout 1996 and 1997.

We call this Magazine Web, or MagWeb for short. We take the printed articles in the magazine, convert them to electronic format, and put it all in one site for you. Main text, graphics, sidebars, orders of battles, charts--it's all there. If there's a photo, we include the photo. A map? We include that too. Uniform illustration? That too. We like to say: The only thing we change are the typos!
