I haven't been able to find the publication, with the information provided, only a couple of articles about Phil Cross show up?

When a link doesn't work, first look for a space in the link and remove it.

In this case, it's right after the http.

try this:

"Links are broken to avoid linking to non-sponsors."

I don't mind that, businesses need to generate ad revenue, so I presumed a direct unpaid link wouldn't work or be allowed. Even when I type the general information about the publisher, title and author into a search engine, no information about the book shows up.

Author should try stocking, advertising some books via the PA magazine. A win for everyone.

I broke the link and sent "johnwolker" a warning for posting a direct link to a commercial site without being a sponsor. A forum rule violation.

The question is how do we keep this material out of the hands of the Jack Napiers and Tom Dulaneys of the world ;)
