Hi, everyone, time for a good laugh (before the catalogers tear their
hair). We had received vyp.1-16 of the above journal (v.16 published in
2003), then along comes 216 (published in 2005), which we only just got. I
figured they had decided to renumber it for some reason, but didn't know
if we were missing any issues, so I decided to email one of the editors
listed on the website. I will reproduce his answer below, but just in case
the new version of slavlibs does not handle Cyrillic, I will sum up what
he said: they got into a fight with the previous publisher, and now that
they are starting afresh with a different publisher they wanted to mark
the break with new numbering that would still be connected to the old, so
they jumped ahead from 16 to 216 and henceforth will number the issues
BACKWARDS until they eventually reach back to 17 if they live that long.
Issues 215, 214 and 213 are forthcoming.
