I also had a hard time getting paid by Camera Arts for the two articles I
did for them. In the end I made myself a PITA and called him every week or
ten days. He became so annoyed with me he finally sent the check. I'm quite
sure if I called him today he'd hang up on me!

In his defense, publishers are notoriously slow and reluctant to pay
stringers. Plus, I doubt he's getting rich publishing that magazine. Still,
he could learn to smile once in a while....

Good luck! The exposure you got from the article is certainly worth

Can you take it to small claims court? Enforcement isn't easy, but it
might be fun. And get their attention.
