Launched as a quarterly subscription magazine late in 1998, 15 loose leaf issues of The Greek-o-File were published until June 2002.  Starting with an Introductory Issue (the first for all subscribers) Greek-o-File Magazines comprised 28-30 A4 pages, punched to build into a FILE  on all things Greek with articles under regular headings:


Front Page - usually current affairs, plus a list of magazine contents

Letters Page - reader views, suggestions and questions

Places to Go - Profiles with maps, personal readers’ & editor’s travel experiences, travel notes.

Features - eg House Buying, Driving a car to Greece, Medical Experiences, DIY, Natural History, Working in Greece and other articles which could not be classified easily under other headings.

Food & Cooking - articles on food and drinks, plus recipes to try.

Greek Life - Traditions and Anecdotes on Life in Greece

History - from Ancient Greece to Modern History

Mythology - Tales from Ancient Greece - Gods, Heroes, Mythical Creatures and  People

Greek Language - beginners lessons and more advance grammar

Book Reviews - books about Greece and novels set in Greece

Music - articles about and recommendations for Greek Music, musicians, instruments, etc.

Contacts - advertisements for our supporters - suppliers of holidays,  services & products for lovers of Greece


Former magazines are still available (limited quantities),  (price £3 each inc UK postage), some issues where we have excess printed stocks are just £1 each (£3 minimum order) or you can purchase all 15 to fit standard A4 2 or 4 ring File for just £20 - prices include UK P&P.

Regular readers tell us they still refer back to their files when visiting a new destination (to read what it is really like there) and they enjoy rereading anecdotal pieces too, to remind them of good times when they can’t be in their favourite country.  The vast majority of articles are just as relevant and enjoyable today.

From our launch until mid 2002 we built up a circulation to over 1100  Grecophile subscribers.  Most were in the UK, but also some in Greece and other parts of Europe, plus USA and Australia.  Our readers were very enthusiastic, but with 4 publication deadlines a year to meet and only minimal income, the format was not cost nor time effective to maintain.

In November 2002 we published our first bumper collection of illustrated articles and anecdotes in the current more professional paperback book format -192 pages, approx  50 articles with illustrations in each book - the same style of articles, but more portable and also now available via the book trade.


A Greek-o-File eRecipe Book is available at £1.50 in Mobi or ePub format with all recipes and some food articles from ALL publications (15 magazine & 8 books published 1998-2010)
