Now that we have your undivided attention, we want to explain carefully about ECPHORIZER issue dates. After falling behind schedule in 1984, we kept hoping we'd catch up; but when we found ourselves publishing the May 1986 issue (#57) in August, we finally threw in the towel. So we dated the next issue (#58) September, to match its actual month of publication. At the same time, we advanced everybody's subscription three months. So please stop writing us about "missing issues" — the issues of June, July, and August 1986 (like the missing troika in the Bible's Old Testament books of Pandora, Bozo, and Boswell) never existed. Thank you.
