Mike Holme’s magazine, the appropriately-named Holmes, will cease publication after its December issue.

The magazine was founded in Canada in 2010; it expanded to the U.S. later that same year. Holmes published 10 issues/year.

Lisa Drozdov, director of communications for The Holmes Group, said in a release that the company had asked publisher Dauphin Media Group to continue publication until May 2012, to allow for a smooth transition to a new publisher.

"But, in light of a dispute between The Holmes Group and Dauphin Media Group,” she said, “[the requests] have declined."

That doesn't mean the magazine is dead forever. Holmes plans to keep subscribers and fans of the magazine in touch with the publication’s status via its website.

The Holmes Group has indicated it will try to find a new publisher for the magazine and make the switch “as seamlessly as possible for everyone affected by the change.” No word yet on when it hopes to have the magazine in print again.
