We too have had many problems contacting Nautilus Press.  The absolutely
only method that seems to work is the fax, although that hasn't been
real reliable either.  They used to be really good, but something has
happened in the last couple of years. Their titles have had
major decreases in frequency in the past few years, with many combined
issues.  The last issue of Marine Mammal News we have received (despite
a current subscription) is vol. 20:1-6 (6 issues combined in one!)
dated June 1994, received 7/20/94.  Vol. 19 also had only 6 issues,
but they weren't so heavily combined.
  We're terminating our subscription to this title as well as Ocean
Science News. They're just not worth it give budgetary constraints.
