Also received #197 last week... madness! (remember the original street date was August 8th)

Doing its best Father Christmas impression, #201 slid down the mailbox and was found by me today - a quick 26 days since the previous.

Got #201 today (Dec 20) in Atlanta. So strange to see a new (and not even released) product on the cover!

Well, hopefully my copy doesn't take a few weeks after the fact like issue #200 did, so I guess time will tell.

My issue 200 finally arrived yesterday, so this is 2 months in a row where I'm getting my issue way later than those on the east coast, so not sure if a new delivery method is being used or not. But on a more positive note, both issues arrived in much better condition then I'm normally used to, so how ever they are being shipped, I'm happy to have the delay, so long as the condition is great once it arrives.

And that was #202 across the finish line today (9th), arriving on a Thursday as common, though 5 weeks and 1 day after the previous...

Got #202 yesterday (Jan 8 ) in Atlanta. Possibly the fastest delivery ever, a bit over a week after the street date.

Well, my #201 just arrived on the 10th, so I won't be holding my breath the #202 arrives anytime soon, but I often do get a few quick deliveries each year. Along with several beyond delayed issues as well, as the longest wait so far is about 3 months. So in the best case, about 10-14 days on the fast side, and about 2-3 months on the rather slow side, so in reality, all appears "normal".

#203 double-jumped into my mailbox yesterday (30th) - a very swift 21 days since the previous (and thereby cut the slack from last time).

My subscription got cancelled because they couldn't charge my credit card as it had expired. I got absolutely zero warnings like from any other normal service such as Netflix.
The funny thing is, they have been sending me emails that my magazine is on its way but of course, I never received them..

F***ing idiots, I say. I should seriously consider not resubscribing.

Hi everyone. I am reposting my post from the subscription thread. This is likely a wrong forum but I am going to try anyway. If you know somewhere to get a reasonably prices copy of issue 200 I would like to know. I am living in Europe and am not going to pay $40 plus tax for a copy for sale in the US

The post.

---
First time poster here. This might be the wrong forum but I don't know there else to put it. Also, I realize this is very late. So my question is: Is there any place to purchase missing issues without having to pay exorbitant prices on ebay?

I am an international subscriber and never received #200. I contacted CS late November and was promised a that replacement issue would be shipped shortly. I did not receive the issue and contaced CS late December by mail. I wrote that I was still missing issue 200 but also mentioned in passing that issue 201 was late. However I said that this was just due to the Christmas month rush.

A few days later I received an email saying that a replacement issue had been dispatched. However, this was issue 201 which I only mentioned in passing and never asked for. I wrote again and was told that issue 200 was not in stock and nothing could be done despite previous promises, I received the regular issue 201 early January and the replacement a bit ago. So now I have 2 issues of 201 and no issue 200.

So my question is – is there any way to actually get a paper issue of 200 that I was promised? Is there a used mag forum? Or is ebay the only way to purchase a paper copy?

Some kindergarden kid glued a drawing to the front of #204 and put it in my mailbox today, a very timely 27 days since the previous.
