i visited St. Mark's bookshop twice last month precisely for the purpose
to get the Pli-- and twice i was told by shop assistants that it has been
sold out--because nobody was able to find the issues on shelves. I would
gladly come again--but i want to be sure that the journal is available.
Could you kindly let me know what's happening--and if the issues are
indeed there, please hold them for me and let me know when to pick
Thanks a lot
