Unfortunately the BIS are only just discovering the net. They have only
email access at this time and I'm not sure what that is like.

Their address is

British Interplanetary Society

SW8 1SZ

Tel: +44 (0)171 735 3160
Fax: +44 (0)171 820 1504

They can provide back issues (well certainly of Spaceflight their other
publication. You can of course subscribe to them and/or join the society
if you so wish. I admit to being a member and so here endeth the plug.

Many British university libraries (well the ones I've visited/studied or
worked at) seem to have a fair collection of the publications. UCL,
London virtually had the lot - I spent a few hours in the basement of
the library there amusing myself reading articles (from the early 1950's
I think) in Spaceflight which were speculating over trips to the moon.

If you connect to the gopher at gopher.niss.ac.uk there is a bulletin
board through whose menus you can access most UK library on-line
catalogues. In the US/N. America I guess you'd have to visit the LOC
(http://www.loc.gov).
