To continue to provide the valuable information accumulated in the early out-of-print issues, they have been carefully scanned and converted to PDFs, making them easily accessible. An index is included. Each issue is an individual, searchable PDF with the original pictures. They can be ordered on a flash drive.

The Spinning Wheel Sleuth, The First Ten Years, contains PDFs of Issues #1 to #38, January 1993 to October 2002. An index for those issues is included. The price is $30 [$27 for subscribers].
As more back issues became out-of-print, it was clear that another compilation was needed.
Compilation #2 contains SWS Issues #39 to #70, January 2003 to October 2010. An index for those issues is included. The price is $20 [$18 for subscribers].
