What January Issue ?

I was waiting for the January issue knowing it may be a bit late due to xmas when low and behold Februaries issue showed up . I called the subscription office to inquire about the lost issue and was told they had run out . They said they would extend my subscription for one extra month . I explained that I had every issue since January 93 and was hoping to keep the collection complete . That fact seemed to be of little consequence to the fellow on the phone who again tried to divert my attention to the extra issue. I offer to purchase the January issue as a back order but was told there were non to be purchased .

  When I got off the phone I called two of my local audio club members that were also subscribers and found that neither of them received the January issue . At that point we new the issues had not been lost in the mail .

   I realize it's a small thing in a world with many major problems and there's not much I can do but when my renewal notice shows up they'll be getting a letter in place of a cheque .

It seems unforgivable that

It seems unforgivable that any subscribers would be left short. How does that happen? I noticed that same issue was on the local newsstand at a hefty price, as usual.

I understand your concern with a hole in the collection.

We dropship the magazine to regional mailing centers. The newsstands copies often are on display before subscribers receive their issues, I am afraid, and we have no control over what happens to magazines once they enter the mail system.

I have sent tmorosk both a private message and an email asking him for his street address so I can mail him a replacement, but he hasn't responded yet.

Ah, the email address I had on-file had a "2" after your name. But all I need is your street address. Email it to me at john.atkinson@sorc.com and I'll put a January issue in the mail to you tomorrow.

I sympathize with the angst. I have a complete collection of The Absolute Sound going back to Issue #1, except I am missing one issue. You can imagine how that irritates.

Lost issue

 

 

 Hello John .

Well , ten days after the February issue arrived the January issue showed up . It's very tattered and has some strange markings on it that the wife tells me are Arabic .  Kind of looks like it took a short cut through Afghanistan or some such . But it's here !

Thanks for your replies and concern .

So it was lost in the mail

So it was lost in the mail after all. I'm glad to learn that's all it was.
