White Wolf and the Phoenix does not presently carry Collingwood (though
that may change). Robin & Russ Handweaving published it; they are on the
web somewhere... In addition, you can probably get you local Borders to
order it.

Katz' book is out of print; it predates Collingwood (he cites it in his
sources). Fortunately, I was able to borrow it from the Arlington County
Library and make a photocopy.
