Since it's been awhile since Issue 14 came out and Issue 15 is still not out, I wanted to let people know where things stand. If you're an ANTINOMY supporter, you can help me by letting other subscribers know about this.

Part of the "end game" in finishing up publication of ANTINOMY involves financing the publication. ANTINOMY was never the cheapest option in terms of publishing a journal of this sort and postage prices have increased every year since it began. As I complete my 2008 taxes, I'm reminded just how far below break-even ANTINOMY has fallen. Of course, this is one of the reasons I am ceasing publication after the next two issues.

Regardless, I want subscribers to know that I believe I will receive enough funding to publish Issue 15 within the next month or so. So while some of the time constraints that have made it difficult to produce the issues have eased, the publication schedule of the next two issues will be based more on funding than time.

I also wanted to mention that Issue 16, the final issue, will be an expanded version of ANTINOMY with more pages and more content. It will sell individually for $30. Anyone who subscribes to the final four issues of ANTINOMY, starting with Issue 13, will receive this jumbo-sized final Issue without additional cost.

Thanks,

Gene

Thanks for the update, Gene. Frankly, I would have paid a higher subscription rate to keep this exceptional journal in print. Even so... I'm looking forward (patiently Smile) to the final issues.

Gene- I echo Magiguy's comments. THis is/was a superb publication, and the physical quality of the magazine made it a pleasure to read. It would have been worth twice the price.

How is it coming? I got all the issues so far but want the full year and CD of the last 4 issues when they come out.

I'm sure that they will come, sooner or later. It's a shame to see Antinomy come to such an abrupt end, but I am happy to wait until Gene has the resources to finish the run in the style we have become accustomed to.

Patience is a virtue... Smile

In a recent email from Gene he mentioned that he is finishing up issue 15 and it should go to the printer in about 2 - 3 weeks. Issue 16 and the CD annual will then take some period of months to complete. Something to look forward to...

Let's face it, the odds of seeing any more issues of this formerly wonderful magazine are extremely slim. Too bad, and not good news for the subscribers who already paid for them.

I maintain faith in Gene, and feel certain that we will, eventually, see the final two issues and the accompanying CD annual.

I've been reluctant to post here without having something concrete to say. I've been wrong many times this year in my estimates regarding the availability of Issue 15. I realize it's been an absurdly long time between issues. I can only say that I am trying to get this issue to the printer before the end of the year. I will post when that goal has been reached.

If ANTINOMY had been a financial success, then instead of explaining delays in Volume 4, I'd be posting about the availabilty of Volume 5. That's the reality of the situation.

I appreciate the supportive comments posted here.

So I take it you didn't make your goal of sending #15 to press by the end of 2009. Or does "should be out soon" mean that it's now in production?
