  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.

  2. Hello Phillip….I wrote articles in 1980, 1981, 1982 for Mercury Hour. The main article was in 3 editions during this period “Chiron and Group Fusion” under my name, Tom McNamara.. Please help.

  3. Hello again, Tom! Thank you for advising me of your authorship of those articles. I’ll be glad to take scans for you once I have access to them again.
    A quick update for you:
    A permanent home for the library was secured three months ago, but it has required a significant amount of renovation prior to the bookcases and bookshelves being moved in. The moving of the bookcases is currently projected for July this year, with the moving and unpacking of the books over the months to follow. I’m sorry I can’t get to it faster than that.
    I have approved your ‘Allow request’ in the Stop Spammers plug-in. Sometimes it overexerts itself, especially when faced with log-ins from email addresses at a small number of domains that have proved particularly problematic for spam registrations, such as mail.ru and yahoo.com. I can only apologise. In general it is necessary because without it 95% of all submissions were spam. Thanks for your understanding.
