    • Hello Judy, thank you for your interest and question!
      The library here has only a limited number of them, and they have not yet been copied digitally, but they could be scanned.
      May I ask if you have read others or come across references to or recommendations for the magazine elsewhere?
      The focus of Herndon’s monthly columns tends to lean heavily towards mundane predictions, so far as I can recall from browsing.
      Best wishes,
      Philip Graves
