Me too, number 3 with no renewal form for 2018, so presumably another journal to follow. They must be running late last year.

That's reassuring as I thought I might have been due the Nov. edition.

"19th Dec. update: Our Journals are way behind schedule, for which we apologise. The printer we have used for some time now has been sold and the new owner appears not to now how to conduct the business properly. As a result we are still waiting for the August issue to come back, and meanwhile a different printer has been chosen for our November issue which should be with them shortly. Many of you will know why these delays have happened but once we have got up to date, we are confident that the delays you have expereinced will be a thing of the past."

And there's me worrying when Haworthiad is 2 weeks late.

I joined a Club that issued a quarterly newsletter for a musician that I like to listen to. The deal was £10 for four issues. It started off OK, most years having four issues each.

However over time the issues started getting further and further apart - four issues over 18 months, then 24 months, then 36 months.....

By the time they were coming out more than 12 months apart I decided not to renew my subscription..... :shock:

Just checked issue 32 came out in 09/16 and is still the current issue.....
