Issue Notes

Although the indicia gives May as the publication date for this issue, the cover-date of July may be more accurate: #1 is also dated as May, both in the indicia and on the cover, and it seems unlikely that #2 would be published at the same time; #3 is dated as September; and the frequency is stated as bi-monthly. This adds up to a likely "true" publication date of July, with the probability that the indicia was simply not updated from the first issue (it has been known).
