Re: Industry Week hijinks -Thanks Max Shenk 01 Feb 2002 16:38 UTC

Hi all!

Thank you for your help, feedback and empathy.

The official word I got from IW, as Mina suspected (below), is that
Dec-Jan is combined in name AND enumeration; eg, although it did not
appear as such, its actual enumeration is

Vol 250, no 15/Vol.251, no. 1

making Feb 2002

Vol 251, no 2

Thanks again for your help. I'm kinda new at this!

A number of publishers do this dastardly thing--they issue a combined
issue at the end of the year (with numbering for the earlier volume only),
but when their first issue of the next volume comes out--they call it
no.2! Blast them!

Another title that does this is Billboard. Our microfiche supplier films
the combined issue twice--once at the end of the earlier year/volume,
again at the beginning of the new year/volume. They had us confused for
awhile because our fiche was coming in beginning with no.1, when no.1 was
not really published as such.
