  1. Hello, Tom! I don’t have access to most of these issues at present as a result of the library I manage being boxed in storage in connection with a recent international relocation process. When you say you represent this writer, I’m not sure if you mean in a legal capacity or otherwise, but I regret I’ll have no access to the issues concerned until such time as I’ve secured and prepared for use a permanent place for the library – which is unlikely to have been completed before early 2018. If it’s more urgent, I can only suggest you try other libraries. Next year, I’d be happy to help.
