Go World Archive

Go World magazine, the English world's premier source of go information for more than three decades, is now available in digital form! All 129 issues, from 1977 through 2012, including rare early ones no longer available, have been lovingly scanned to maintain the exact look and feel of the original. The archive contains a wealth of game commentaries, articles, problems, and news. An extensive index allows you to find exactly what you want in any of the 129 issues. Full-text search is available across the entire archive of more than 8000 pages. Go World Archive can be used on any computer with a DVD drive and Adobe Reader software.
