The SURVIVALIST #9 issue is now out, just got mine (came yesterday). As usual, it was excellent. Went to the Barnes & Noble yesterday (before hitting PO and getting my mail) and asked if they had SURVIVALIST as I couldn't find it on the shelf. Last time it was in the "current events'' area and I was told it was selling well. I couldn't find it and asked and was told it "was not on their list of magazines" in the computer! Well the AIDS victim owner (yes, really) DID tell me he "wasn't going to allow THAT sort of magazine in HIS store!" and recommended a store 60 miles away when I asked about it some time ago!
