In an interview we did at Plots With Guns, Mark Coggins ("The Immortal Game") said he had a story in issue 4 of NBM, but he said that before he could finish another piece for them, the mag folded. So, at least 4 issues. He also said "It was edited by Richard Layman (one of Hammett's biographers) and published in trade paperback format. "
