Good morning, Serialists:

Is anyone having difficulties receiving issues of the publications Pro
Wrestling Illustrated (PWI) and Ring (on boxing)? Both are published by
London Publishing in Fort Washington, PA, and are described in the
issues as monthly publications.

Our subscription agent informed us that the publisher considers PWI as
two separate bi-monthly subscriptions, with  issues coming out every
other month being considered Pro Wrestling Illustrated Special, although
"Special" doesn't appear anywhere on the items. We have been ordering a
full year of PWI, but are not regularly receiving the alternating
issues. A similar situation exists with Ring, and the publisher won't
honor claims after forty days.

Is anyone placing subscription orders for PWI and Ring as two different
bi-monthly titles?
