Are you in the UK (Nick's Trip is just about out here now, I think) or
in the US (Nick's Trip has been out there some time, I belive)?
I'd always assumed you were 'over there' but it occurs to me from this
comment that you might actually be 'over here'.

BTW, everyone on this list should subscribe to Crime Time--not just 'cos
I've got a rather neat piece on Pelecanos in it, but because it really
is jolly good. Fred Willard has a cracking story in the current issue,
and there are more great articles and reviews of books, comics and films
than you could shake a stick at.
