Interesting. Those comments make me very much want to read the magazine version.

It's also available as an ebook from Amazon, but with a rather hefty price tag ($14.99). Then again, at just over 11 MB, the file size is rather hefty as well, as is the print version (1,136 pages).

It's not a bad price, considering what you get for it, but despite the presence of some of the most unforgettable and powerful names in detective fiction that grace its pages, it'll take a while to justify the expense before I can bring myself to hit the "buy" button.
