Right after I sent the original message to the list, I looked at the
EBSCONET issues-received list.  It looked like those first three issues
were combined, so I called TNR again to ask about that.  The fellow I
spoke with said it was three separate issues, but, obviously, he was
wrong.  My own frustration is that I never received that issue, and it's
out of stock!

My copy of Jan. 1-15 is listed as v.236:no.1-3.  Is this incorrect?
Should there be two more issues between this one and Jan. 22?

The folks at TNR, as they like to call it, have changed their
publication pattern mid-volume.  The new pattern is a bit confusing:
it's every two weeks except when it's three, and the exception dates as
listed in the masthead are not helpful.  A printer error has made things

Fortunately, Jason, in their subscriber services office, was VERY
helpful.  Here are dates and issue numbers for 2007:

January 1 (no.1), 8 (no.2), 15 (no.3), 22 (no.4), 29 (no.5)
February 5 (no.6), 12 (no.7), 19-26 (no.8-9)
March 5-12 (no.10-11), 19 (no.12)
April 2 (no.13), 23 (no.14, not "12" as printed).

>From here on, the numbering should pick up with no.15 for the May 7
issue and continue on the following dates:

May 7, 21
June 4, 18
July 2, 23
August 6, 27
September 10, 24
October 8, 22
November 5, 19
December 10, 31

Thanks, Jason!
