Now in book format, Shaw (continuing The Shaw Review) will publish general articles on Shaw and his milieu, reviews, notes and the authoritative Continuing Checklist of Shaviana the bibliography of Shaw studies. Because of its book size, Shaw will offer approximately twice as many pages as the present three-issue format combined; it therefore will be possible to utilize more illustrative material than before, and more detailed studies.For libraries and individual readers who bind their issues, the expense of binding will now be eliminated, and the studies published will be less susceptible to loss and mutilation than in the paper-cover form. Some annual volumes will be special-theme books, although such service departments as the annual Checklist and a book review section will be continued in them. Two-year subscribers in the U.S. and Canada are guaranteed the Volume 1 price of $15.95 for Volume 2 (1982), $17.50 in all other countries."
