I used to enjoy TPJ, but never subscribed because it was a US publication.
The high premium charged on subscriptions to non-US readers and the
requirement to pay in dollars is just too much. So I'd pick it up in a
specialist bookshop in London as and when I remembered. And then I moved out
of London...

That the magazine was quarterly did not help me to remember to go and buy
the latest edition. I'd have appreciated a monthly read.

I didn't subscribe to the "new" TPJ, because I couldn't find any information
on the format of it, and electronic magazines don't lend themselves well to
being read on the loo. That's where most of my reading occurs.

Well, thats one way for the politicians to justify more pork in the budget.
