For anyone thinking of dealing with Istor Productions, I advise that you not
send payment in advance and don't plan on getting what you want in any
reasonable time. They are extremely unreliable.
I attempted to order a GBW video from them. I sent a check by mail. After
five weeks, I sent an e-mail inquiry to Jack Thompson asking whether the
order and check had been received. After some time, I got a reply saying
that he could not say whether the order was received becaused orders
customarily get tossed into a pile with a lot of other things he has going
and he can't tell about orders until they happen to turn up. I waited a
week to see whether he could locate the order. After several attempts to
get an answer, he finally sent me a message that I should quit bothering him
because he has no way of locating an order until it turns up. He said that
he has a telephone and e-mail for his convenience, not for mine and that he
didn't want any more inquiries from me.
