I really enjoy Los Angeles Times Magazine. The articles cover a range of interesting topics; the newsprint does not smudge my fingers. Seeing a picture of Jack Smith while reading his column is a wonderful treat. Unfortunately, your page-numbering system is beyond my comprehension. What are SF pages? The articles appearing on these pages are not listed in the table of contents. To add to the reader's irritation, normally numbered pages are interspersed throughout the SF section. Perhaps this is the "science fiction" portion of the magazine.
'SF' identifies pages that appear in our San Fernando Valley zone edition. As you may have noticed, we have converted our zone-edition paging to a letter sequence. Thus in today's magazine, the first half of the zone section begins with Page 24A, followed by 24B, etc. The second half begins with Page 40A, followed by 40B, etc. Pages with bleed photographs or full-page advertisements are not numbered. Due to mechanical restrictions, zone-section articles are not included on the contents page. The number in the lower left corner of the cover indicates the zone edition. San Fernando Valley is indicated by a 2.
