I was a bit disappointed to find that The Apple IIGS Buyer's Guide was not available anywhere online. I contacted the former Editor, Paul Pinella, and found that the publisher, Redgate Publishing, had been acquired by America Online several years ago, so I contacted AOL and was able to get permission from them to have www.Apple2Online.com serve as the online host for The Apple IIGS Buyer's Guide.
I currently have in my possession about half the issues. I now have all of those issues scanned and available for download/online reading at A2OL. I am currently asking around the A2 community to see if anyone has any of the missing issues and, if so, would they contribute the the A2OL library by either providing high-quality scans OR allow me to create high-quality scans of their issues. If anyone is willing to send me their issues for scanning, I will gladly pay the postage both ways.
Here's the link to The Apple IIGS Buyers Guide library page on A2OL:
