    Koi Bito Magazine

    Does anyone know if there were any more magazines after No 10?
    I have 1 to 10 inclusive but don't think there were any further, would just like to know if I do indeed have the complete set.
    Thanks in advance.

    Issue #10 is the last one. I had to go check my saved issues to be sure & that led to re-reading the article on the Maruyama Showa recently mentioned in another thread. Wonderful article. I have not gone back to re-read my old KBs in a long time. Makes me wish it was still being published. Brian not only wrote well and edited well, but made sure there was real substance, not the overdone, superficial oooh-ahhh stuff that so often filled the pages of koi magazines back in the day. Today, of course, the internet has supplanted the role of the koi magazine. First it was discussion forums like this one, and now it is Facebook supplanting the forums. The curious thing is that as information becomes more readily available with every passing day, it is increasingly just snippets, factoids and 'look-at-me with [fill in blank]'. For information to be useful, it needs to be curated as much as the gazillion objects in a museum's collection. The magazine editor served the curator role... at least the good ones did.

    The problem with face book is lack of storage and search functionality. I find myself having to repost answers to questions that I posted on several weeks ago.
