Via a reader comes this query (with details murkified for obvious reasons):
Let us say that Levinson receives an offer from the Basic Law Review (BLR), set to publish in spring 05. BLR tells Levinson that they expect their issue to go out in March 2005. Levinson turns down competing offers to accept the offer from Basic L. Rev.
Levinson waits for the follow-up. And waits. And waits. By late February, Levinson still hasn’t heard any follow-up. An e-mail draws no response. Levinson pokes around on the BLR website. It seems to indicate that they still have not published the first issue for their 2004-05 volume.
Levinson sends another e-mail to BLR, asking when they expect to publish the spring 05 issue. BLR article editor at last responds, indicates that in fact they are at least several issues behind, and that they can’t give any estimate for when the spring 2005 issue will be published. It might be a full year late; perhaps more.
