About Acid Dragon:

"Acid Dragon magazine is dedicated to progressive rock since 1988. With a publication rate of three issues per year (digest sized), it is a precious collection of biographies, stories, studies, documents and interviews. Although we have subscribers in France, our readership is mainly from abroad since Acid Dragon is written in English : UK, USA, Korea, Brazil, Spain... Acid Dragon is the "French voice of prog abroad", the "Frog Prog 'zine": taste la différence... and discover our reviews by collaborators from Cuba, Chile, Spain, USSR, Scotland"

It's the only progressive rock fanzine closely connected with a progressive radio show. Acid Dragon indeed produces a prog show called "Prog à Part" since 1986 on Lyon's student and rock radio, SOLFM.
