One I can heartily recommend is "Inside Backgammon" edited by
Bill Robertie and Kent Goulding. Now in it's 7th year, currently
4 quarterly issues cost $40 US (in the US). Each issue contains a
4 problem quiz (contest) the detailed solutions of the previous month's
quiz, plus articles on the cutting edge ideas of BG. Typically an
issue is 30-40 glossy, attractively formatted pages.
I believe that back issues are also available ($40 per volume--
6 issues per volume back then, but typically a few pages less per issue).
Not surprisingly, these back issues are LOADED with good info as well.
