This is more advice than question. Yesterday issue #7 arrived with a card telling me that it is time to renew. They are transferring away from McSweeny's and Momofuku it appears will be handling everything themselves. I called McSweeny and person I spoke with said, "this is not the smoothest transition ever." If you follow the link you can't actually "renew" your subscription, you have to initiate a new one. McSweeny's is a well run company but perhaps Chang thought he was paying too much for what McSweeny provides in marketing and fulfillment. Perhaps not wise. But that's how publishing works.
