Well, perhaps I'm severely lacking in up to the minute knowledge but I've only just discovered that 'The Writer's Handbook' has ceased publication!
But, fear not, apparently much of the information contained within these hallowed pages is available online:
The Writer's Handbook ceases publication
In future, writers are going to have to learn to do without the book described by The Times as "a book no writer should be without". That's because Macmillan Publishers have announced that the 2011 edition of their long-running Writer's Handbook will be the last. One of the main reasons given for the decision is the rise of online resources providing the same information – often in a cheaper and more convenient way.
While such a longstanding stalwart of the industry will undoubtedly be missed, former users of the handbook will be pleased to know that they can find most of the information it contained – plus a lot more information that it didn't – at www.firstwriter.com. All the information can be accessed for a fraction of the price of the old book, and at the same time you can benefit from the additional features offered by online resources: instant searches to find what you're looking for faster; user feedback on listings; daily alerts by email of new and updated listings; searchable notes and reminders, and more!
I'm off to check this website out!
