AHMM Mar/Apr 2017

There’s a small notice in the current issue of AHMM. It serves as both a page filler and a call to action, and it’s worth repeating:

Note to Our Readers:
If you have difficulty finding Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine at your preferred retailer, we want to help. First, let the store manager know that you want the store to carry this magazine. Then send us a letter or postcard mentioning AHMM and giving us the full name and address of the store. Write to us at:
Dell Magazines, Dept. NS
6 Prowitt Street
Norwalk, CT 06855-1220

Use the above address for AHMM, Analog, Asimov’s and EQMM.

It works. I did it for Fate, which I couldn’t find at any retailer in Portland. Now Rich’s on 9th and Alder downtown carries it. What a kick to see the new issue on their racks.

For convenience, here’s a few more addresses:
Fantasy & Science Fiction
PO Box 3447
