Picked up a copy in Smiths yesterday having bought the last 3 or 4 editions, apart from the paper quality being terrible , it is half as thick as before and still really expensive......it went straight back on the shelf. Shame as I really enjoyed the earlier editions.

Sorry not online either! They have stopped publishing it for now, whether it will be back or not hasn't been decided but it isn't looking good.

Yep that was a shame about SB&R, good magazine, did what it said on the tin. But they didnt give any heads up re a final issue or any notice to subscription payers.

I believe that any subs owing will be refunded - they haven't gone bust just stopped publishing.
