It's just gone on sale in our local Smiths. I really don't understand why it's taking so long to reach shelves, considering we sent stock out end of December.

It's a very nice bookazine! Received mine in the post and it is well worth getting I saw the Zinio digital edition pop up in the app feed too so all is not lost for those who can't get a physical copy

You won't find the Amiga Book on Future's website. They don't make it.

Is anyone still looking for a copy of The Amiga Book? There were six in the Croydon WH Smith today and I picked up two copies that I can post on. I can get more unless someone else gets there first.

Four fresh Amiga Book issues spotted this afternoon: London, WHSmith, Charring Cross Railway station. I'm in the UK mostly as a tourist for a few days and couldn't grab them for you guys.

Many thanks to CodyJarrett for securing an issue for me.

I picked up the last copy today in whsmith plymouth. :-)

I can't believe people are selling this on ebay for 30!

Just had a quick browse and it is a great read. Would have loved to seen a bigger peice on Moonstone and also anything really on North & South, Stuntcar Racer, Battle Chess etc. Overall a very worthy purchase though (if you can get hold of a Copy).

Cody kindly sent a copy to NZ and I am also really enjoying it. I wasn't expecting too much after some of the comments here, but I haven't read most of those making-ofs before and it's thicker than the usual magazine. I was pleasantly surprised!

I thought these were in short supply as the other week there was only one copy left in my local WHSmiths in town (Rotherham); now there's six.

This should be with the magazines? I was at the skanky West One retail park in Salford today and there was no sign of it. Nicked by the scallies I expect.
