It lists as $42 and change, but use code SLICKDEALS at checkout (all caps) to get the $14/year rate.

It allowed me to renew my subscription for a year. It never asked for my old subscription number. After the order was complete it says it will extend my subscription from between now and one year from now even though my current subscription expires next May.

We'll have to see if I start getting two issues per month or if they have some way of finding and stitching them together.

fyi

The code still works, but it's now only -20%. Instead of $42.95, it's now $34.36. I wish I had seen this when it was $14. :(

They arrive around the 26th or 27th of each month, around 33 days early. The November issue arrived around September 26th. This reminded me to read my October issue which arrived around 30 days earlier.

Both Sky & Telescope and Astronomy are this way.
