    I thought for issue #1 and #2 we all got our digital supplements around the same time? Nothing in my inbox yet for the digital supplement for issue #3.

    (No physical magazine yet either, but I'm not really expecting it yet. Since I'm here in the "frozen wastes" of Canada, they apparently send the magazines up this way by drunken polar bear, or something.)

    Digital supplement #3 came this morning to me and went directly into the filter. Look forward to reading the stories.

    My digital supplement arrived today too. And the download option worked the first time, too. :)

    I'm not sure if it has been shared here yet, but at Mission: Chicago there was a single sheet of paper that listed the release schedule for the magazine this year. Given how spotty the release schedule was then I figured I'd best make note of it! Anyways, for reference the release schedule was:
    • #2: April 12th
    • #3: June 21st
    • #4: September 6th
    • #5: November 15th
    Personally I pay by the issue, so its been a bit of a pain keeping up with release schedule. But thus far they seem to have stuck to this schedule!

    I agree with Dr.Beverly their website is confusing trying to find out any news about the magazine.

    I finally got my magazine. Titan magazines is not good at letting you know when your subscription runs out either.I had to call them to find out and it was hard to get through to them.

    I have to ask: Do I have a story in that issue as well?

    I believe my next story was scheduled for #4, but I'm not 100% sure if it's in the print edition or the digital supplement.

    Yeah, I got issue 4 a couple days ago, but I never got issue 3 (I wrote the same customer service email I used before, and they said they're mailing me another copy). Of course, the issue 4 digital supplement is no where to be seen. It's like one of those desk toys with the two-colored liquid sloshing back and forth until it becomes level.

    Greg's story must be in the digital suppliment. In addition to "Growing Pains" by Peter Holmstrom, the second story in print is "Prey" by Lisa Klink.

    Thanks for the update! I'll be curious to see if I'm in the digital update -- or maybe next issue?
