In lieu of nagging your ISP to carry alt.publish.books, or while you're
waiting for them to respond to your nag, do the following:

http://www.dejanews.com

Select POWER SEARCH

On the POWER SEARCH screen, select QUERY FILTER

On the QUERY FILTER screen, type alt.publish.books in the Newsgroup(s):
field. Press [Create Filter].

This will take you back to the FILTERED POWER SEARCH screen, which will
show a document count in the Filter size: field.

I would suggest cranking up the Number of hits (per page) to 100 and
asking for Sort by (per page) by Date.

Then click on the document count in the Filter size: field, and you will
pull up all of the articles which Deja News has stored for
alt.publish.books.

Should tide you over in the mean time,
Sal
