I am looking for a magazine about black & white photography and darkroom techniques.
I have bin reading the UK magazine Black & White photography but it is to digital minded for me.
Are there other magazines and where/how do I get them???
And http://www.lenswork.com/ for another.
Apart from the one you mentioned I don't know of another that attempts to cover darkroom work.
Possible US Magazines:
“Photo Techniques” at www.phototechmag.com has both a regularly published magazine and an occasional special. The current special is about "Essential Lighting Techniques". The one before that was Bruce Barnham's darkroom techniques. Bruce is on the Large Format Forum and works as part of the team of: Richard Ritter (camera builder & repair), Bruce, Ted Harris (Contributing Editor for View Camera Magazine).
ViewCamera.com has many articles on darkroom work and materials.
Since these magazines devote only a portion of their monthly output to darkrooms, is it possible that a book on the subject, geared to your present level and above might better seve your need? There have been many threads here and at the LF Forum on books devoted to darkroom work.

Avoid at all costs "Darkroom Magazine" you will be sorely disappointed, despite the title...
Using film since before it was hip.

I will echo John. I have been a subscriber of PhotoTechniques for over 10 years, all of them good. The have slightly downsized the print version of the magazine by posting some material on the web. Lots of good ideas and most of the contributers are very "approachable" people.
That title makes about as much sense as calling a word-processing magazine "Calligraphy."

Reason: rubbish spelling
I doubt that you will because they are both by subscription only.
