Digital subscriptions can be purchased at anytime and your subscription will start with the most recently published issue.
Q: How long does it take to get my issue through the mail?
Welcome to the big postal crap shoot. Your guess is as good as mine. Actually, my guess is probably better, so here goes:
- USA: allow 1-3 weeks for delivery.
- Canada: allow 2-4 weeks.
- Overseas: allow 6-8 weeks.
Q: Why does it take so long for delivery?
Magazines travel by “Periodical Class” mail, not First Class. The USPS is allowed to slack on Periodical Class delivery. You’re darn right it sucks — contact the USPS and complain, please. (Sorry overseas folks, boats are sloooow.)
Q: How do I know when it’s time to renew my subscription?
Don’t worry, we’ll mail you a renewal notice before your subscription expires. If you prefer to worry, check your mailing label and you’ll see that your last issue number is printed directly above your name.
Q: Do you offer a lifetime subscription?
After plenty of prodding from our loyal readers we’ve decided to offer lifetime subscriptions. $149.99 will buy you a spot on the subscription mailing list until one of us calls it quits. No more renewal reminders, no more missed issues. And now comes the fine print: non-transferable, refunds pro-rated for the first two years only.
