We mail the first issue of your subscription within eight weeks after we've received your order. After that, you should receive each issue a week before the cover date. (For example, your May/June issue will arrive the last week in April.) If an issue is missing or more than two weeks late, contact us and we'll extend your subscription or send you a replacement copy, if possible.

We have back issues (in a limited supply) at our office in Alachua. Back issues are $4.50 each (plus shipping & handling).
