I agree with you but if what you suggest is true, it's not fair to let someone mislead this list by soliciting future subscriptions. I thought that the November issue was "at the press" back in December and to print the November issue before the September one makes no sense at all! And to have all the missing issues available in two weeks in Tucson? I've asked about my missing issues several times and the answer is always 2 weeks!

Publishing and distributing niche periodicals is a daunting and costly endeavour requiring one to to purchase paper stock, edit copy, select and caption photos, layout, print and pay postage for snail mail. Were talking high four figures a month without paying any salaries, or profit.

So, WTFooey with the extra copies for the gem show?!?
