No, I'm fairly certain it's defunct. John Pinsent, the founder/editor,
died in the mid-nineties and it was carried on for a while by his widow
Helena Hurt Pinsent, but (as you say) the last issue was 20:3-4, which was
dated March-April 1995, so it was already three years behind. It's one of
the titles I indexed for TOCS-IN and I have told the co-ordinator of
TOCS-IN (Philippa Matheson at Toronto) that we don't expect more issues.
The purpose, prompt publication of short articles and reviews, has been
assumed by various e-journals in the intervening period.

You can post this reply if you think it will help others.
