I bought a copy last Thursday evening and have discovered a few new titles. There's an ad for one that sounds intriguing but it's from iUniverse. Too scared to try it. :(

Thanks, folks! And glad you managed to find a copy - I don't know if this is due to bookstores' ongoing financial problems or what, but some places seem not to be stocking the current issue.

Well, when you first posted about it, I called the local Borders and wasn't quite sure they had this specific issue. Then I forgot about it until I was in the store Thursday evening.

Ariadne, I was so disappointed. I went to Borders today just to pick up your issue, and all they had were two dog-eared copies of the Sept/Oct issue. It's November 25, for pete's sake! I'll check back next week, and if it's still not there, I'll ask (I didn't have time to ask today). I really want to read about what you see as hf trends.

How annoying, Julianne - I'm sorry to hear they didn't have it. The Borders near my parents' house (West Hartford, CT) doesn't have it either. Makes me wonder if they're downsizing their magazine section, because my dad asked me to pick up the latest issues of some other book-related mags he couldn't buy out his way. I don't know if you're near a B&N, but you could try there. The one near me had plenty of copies.
