The magazine was published independently by Judy Segal and had 8 or 9 issues (I forget how many). Originally she sent out the first issue free of charge. I think the entire set can now be purchased from photo eye. It's a great read, eclectic and informative.

The situation is rather contradictory: while you need inter-positive with less density, which means less development time, less agitation, and more diluted developer. But you will also need to get even tones without mottling or excessive edge effects which require longer development time, more agitation, and stronger developer. Dektol is a developer with a high alkalinity due to amount of carbonate which makes difficult for these requirements to meet at the same time.
D-76 works a little better, and his LC-1 works really nice. It is a two-part developer and control the contrast by changing the ratio of two parts.

cool. I asked about covering this in the upcoming Les McLean workshop, but I got the impression it wasn't Lee or Les' cup of tea.

I will be teaching enlarged negatives this summer at Photographers Formulary in Montana. It is June 25th through the 30th.

The teacher taught the bare basics, and I wanted more. I read everything, experimented, worked with others that had perfected the medium, and then innovated some tricks of my own. I found that controling contrast was easy with a few tricks. I'll post a couple of photos later once I can kick hubby off the main computer that has my images stored.
If you come up 89 at Flagstaff AZ to Kanab Utah, that route will take you through Zion National park. This via Hwy 9 going West. You can then drop back down to Vegas on I-15 which will also take you direct into LA. This is actually a more scenic route than the Northern AZ route along I-40.
