The subject says it all.

I’ve not received December’s magazine. Is it just me? Has it been sent out?

It would appear the post office is struggling a bit.

Ah, not just me then. Thanks, I shall revert to the app version and forego the pleasure of reading SOS in the bath!

Not just you. Sadly most of mine have been very late in the last few months, and one did not arrive at all.....well the packaging arrived 3 months later with a note from the RM saying that they were sorry that the packaging was damaged!! No mention of the fact that it was empty!!

I've still not got mine! Anybody else still waiting for that unmistakeable thump on the doormat?

There's another thread on the same topic here: https://www.soundonsound.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=30&t=75124&start=56

The magazines were printed and shipped to Royal Mail in advance as usual. But it seems a lot of them are taking an extraordinarily long time to percolate through the Royal Mail sorting system.... :frown:

However, as Ian pointed out earlier, the PDF version of the mag is available for free in subscriber's online accounts.

Just noticed this thread. I had an email from New Scientist apologising for late delivery, so SOS is not alone in this!

I had that from New Scientist too - and then it turned up no later than usual. My SOS finally turned up about 10 days later than expected.

Apologies to all subscribers, but we have little to no power over the Royal Mail.

And to add insult to injury, I just received a letter notifying me that they are putting up magazine bulk delivery postage costs for Publishers in the new year! :protest:

It's to pay for all the extra temp staff they've had to hire to get through their backlog...
