A NOTE FOR OVERSEAS READERS OF INTERZONE 269 AND BLACK STATIC 57
Apologies if you're an overseas subscriber/contributor to Interzone 269 or Black Static 57 and still waiting for your copy to arrive. For those who haven't heard this before, we pay for a "priority" service that's supposed to arrive everywhere in the world within seven days. We're at 21 days now at least, and counting, but hopefully your copy will arrive soon. Please keep us updated.
Meanwhile we will continually look to improve this service. Thanks for your patience!
Updated 12th April: Some people in the USA have reported finally receiving their copies, which means that hopefully the rest of you shouldn't have much longer to wait. If you're the least bit concerned please contact us.
We still haven't received any useful information about what might've caused the delay. We were told that the mailing left these shores the day after receipt, but we don't think that can be true. Delivery might well be first class/priority/airmail, according to the sticker in the top right corner of the envelope, but it seems obvious that the mailing was actually deliberately held back a few weeks in order to meet a quota.
Updated 21st April: I had hoped that by now, following the news of the arrivals mentioned in the above update, that the rest of the outstanding copies would have arrived, but unfortunately it seems that many people are still waiting. The fact that some copies have arrived, say, in the USA still gives me hope that the rest will follow, but I don't understand why that hasn't happened yet. I have continually tried and failed to get an explanation or some meaningful information from the company responsible. All being well overseas copies will be taking a different route starting May. Meanwhile, as always, please let us know when your Interzone 269/Black Static 57 arrives – and if it doesn't.
