Explanation of this information's origins:
bulletThis information will be updated on the store's actual web pages sometime soon, but given they're settling into the new store and I do their CompuServe e-mail, you're getting the information any way I can get it to you.  
bulletPlease write AlterYears directly at if you have any question about stock or orders.  I only forward and answer small questions off the old CompuServe account.  I have no direct connection to the store.  This information is provided as an extra service and is as updated as I get it.  The store is ALWAYS the final authority on this information.
