Next Free Radical & Other Stuff
Posted by Lindsay Perigo on 11/19/2004, 12:16am
|Recently I fired the distributors of 'The Free Radical,' Gordon & Gotch, for ongoing, terminal incompetence. I simply got sick of receiving e-mails from folk asking where their copies were & being lied to about this when referring it G & G. I got sick of dealing with airheads who, I imagine, chewed gum & addled their already-tiny brains on headbanging caterwauling. Unfortunately, the "collateral damage" from my firing them has meant a delay in the printing of the next issue, which, all things being equal, would have happened over the next couple of weeks. For that & certain other reasons, I have decided to hold over the release of the next issue till the end of January, 2005. |
Given that this is the Rand centenary issue, the new timing is, in fact, perfect. But it represents the first time in over ten years that I haven't produced the magazine on schedule, & that annoys the hell out of me.
Subscribers may be assured that this delay won't affect their subscriptions - they will still receive the same number of issues for their money. And long-term, existing & intending subscribers may be assured that their service will be entirely, rather than erratically, reliable & professional.
Additionally, 'The Free Radical' is now going to become explicitly the print-arm of SOLO. There'll be more Objectivism (especially of the applied variety) & less NZ politics, though there'll definitely still be significant lashings of politics from *many* countries.
My other message is much more short-term. I shall be away all of next week, being a breakfast session radio host across New Zealand from Auckland. I'd like to build up a goodly queue of daily articles for Joe to select from in my absence.
