CSS is not only dominant, but has a full monopoly, as it is the *only* mag
of it's type in Germany :-)
(6 issues per year,  ca. 60 pages, price: 12 DM !!)

I still buy it though in fact it has become a little too 'fritzy' for my
likening - no choice :(
But don't think they sell an awfull lot of this magazine.
The only places you can get it are book stores inside the big train stations
 - if you are lucky !
They survive from a few enthusiasts (like me :) ) addicted enough to pay any
price (see above !).
