There's none near me. The current issue and the annual are here tho, so it might turn up.
Thoughts and prayers.

I've checked the WHSmiths near me and they don't have any copies in but they do seem to have restocked this months issue of Retro Gamer which is quite odd for that store as in the past when it was gone it was gone, demand must have shot up for it is my guess

I asked in my local WHSmiths which is quite a small branch, and they said none of the smaller branches would be stocking it (due to the classification of the magazine or something or other), and that only bigger stores are likely to have it.

Thanks for the heads up. I've not heard of that before. It's clearly a distribution thing.

Finally got a copy at my local WHSmiths after 20 days of pestering them! :lol:

Thanks to everyone who offered to get me a copy. :)

Hello, I need a copy of the Amiga bookazine. None in my local WHSmith.
Can anyone help me out, please? :)

It pays to ask!

I visited my local Smiths today for the 3rd time and finally decided to ask if they'd order it for me. The manager said the computer was showing 3 copies in stock.

Lo and behold, he appeared minutes later with a bundle of 3 still sealed. I'm happy now :)
Thoughts and prayers.

None in Barnsley WH Smiths either. Plenty of the annual though. Can you just print more?

Let me know if you see it there, I work in Sheff but it's a right trek to get to the city centre at lunchtime. Don't want to go if it's a fools errand.

It's too early to look at reprints I'm afraid. It's still in the process of shipping overseas.

Not to be pedantic, but you really should've called it the amiga 500 book. That seems to be the only machines covered..
