      Magazines listed here are available for purchase, though some are in short supply. They contain a wealth of valuable information, so be sure to order your copies now, before it's too late. Each issue is $10 for members. Unfortunately due to the limited quantities, back issues are not sold to non-members. But if you recognize the value of these magazines, you surely see the benefit of ASIA membership, so become a member today!

      Direct online ordering isn't possible, because we want to check the warehouse (ok, shed) to make sure we have what you need. Send Nadine Nichols an email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., and she'll get you fixed right up!

      The listings aren't yet complete. The webmaster is going through each magazine and posting info here. You don't need to tell us if any pictures or abstracts are missing (we know) but if you find a typo or an error, we probably don't know. Please report any errors you find.

    • Issues out of Print (32)

      Magazines listed below are out of print, so they're not available for purchase. We've now located a copy of each out-of-print magazine and we're working on scanning covers and building tables of contents. Abstracts are a ways off, though. In the future ASIA wants to post articles from some of the out-of-print issues online for our members.

      The listings aren't yet complete. Nadine and the webmaster is going through each magazine and posting info here. You don't need to tell us if any pictures or abstracts are missing (we know) but if you find a typo or an error, we probably don't know. Please report any errors you find.

      From the President

      ASIA's progress of late has been steadily up-hill. We have gone from near dissolution to having money in the bank and a magazine to be proud of.

      As part of our transition, ASIA has appointed a new Board of Directors which is now composed of David Nichols, (President), Michael Dickinson, Tony DiDomenico, John F. Hall, Jr., Chris Herrod, John Karp, Steve Kovacic, and Stan VanDruff (Webmaster). All are well-established in their businesses and represent a true cross-section of our membership.

      The Board introduce themselves below.
