    Well, I know I collect(ed) them, and there's another Space Log
    collector in Spain (who bid against me for the first lot, and
    eventually got three of the four issues in that lot). Beyond that, who
    knows? Only people really interested in space publications would even
    know about Space Log, and there aren't too many of us. It's not like
    comic books!

    According to a letter from TRW, the last published issue was the
    combined volume 33-34, published in 1999, covering the two years

    I have heard that the Summary Log of Space Launches, a regular feature
    in each Space Log issue, was maintained online by TRW for a while
    after 1999. But I have not been able to find the Web site. A
    description of its fate might be available in the SeeSat list archive.
    I think it would be neat if TRW could be persuaded to produce the
    booklets again, starting with a series of catch-up volumes covering
    years 1999 through 2007. It was a useful and interesting publication,
    and I'm sure it helped to advertise TRW in the industry.
