If that happens, it's a sign one of the figures is too tall even to  
fit within a single page by itself, and is postponed until the very  
end of the document together with all the following figures. Remedies:

- Possibly use the \flushbottom declaration, or \enlargethispage* 
{1000pt} (but how can enlarging a specific page apply to a float?).

- Modify the various parameters affecting the placement of floats.  
These are listed on pp. 199--200 of "LaTeX: a Document Preparation  
System (2nd edn)". A fairly boring and tedious process. For example,  
a paper I'm working on starts with:


though I can't remember why exactly I chose these values.

- The float package may also have a cure for your problem.
