Reason Papers archive now on-line

I am proud and pleased to announce that Reason Papers has a new website, the chief virtue of which is the full-text PDF archives. Reason Papers was founded in 1974 by Tibor Machan, and I took over editorship in 2000. All of issues 1-25 are now available for download or on-line reading in the “Archive” section of the new website. Issues 26 and 27, the most current, are available for purchase, although one or two pieces from those as well have on-line PDFs if you want a sample. When issue 28 is published this Fall, issue 26 will go on-line, and so on (what they call a “2-issue moving wall”). This is a truly exciting event, as some of the older back issues were out of print, and the history of Reason Papers includes many noteworthy contributions by major theorists from philosophy, economics, history, and politics. I am especially grateful to Stephan Kinsella for doing the tedious work of making the PDFs, David Veksler for the site redesign, and Jeff Tucker of the Mises Institute (and the Mises Institute generally!) for volunteering to host the site. Thanks! I encourage everyone to go have a look at the new site, and I hope you find much of value in the archives.

I trust I have now done sufficient penance for earlier remarks. This will teach me to keep my mouth shut. Well, probably not. I do get paid by the word....

And this post about the earlier remarks. Oh well. Marina, you chillin' now?

Stephan, it was above and beyond the call of duty for you to remind everyone of that exchange! In any case, you've more than atoned. You're the scan-meister.

Aeon J. Skoble - 6/30/2005

Thanks, Ken. And I can say that without it being too preenng, since the vast majority of it was before I came on board.

Aeon J. Skoble - 6/30/2005

You're welcome! I'm excited about it also. I look forward to reading your essay!

Dear Aeon,
I had written Stephan to thank him, after downloading an essay of mine from way back in 1975 when I first met Tibor and was writing for Reason. My thanks to you as well.

This is great! Reason Papers has had some of the best papers on libertarian and objectivist thinking.
Very glad to see this done.

Yes, I'm as excited about it as anyone else - there are now some articles available that even I couldn't access before!

Hurrah! That is great news, Aeon. A newly available treasure trove. Who could ask for more?
