Blade Magazine subscriptions are sold as 13 issues a year (12 monthly issues plus the Spring issue). I love the magazine and subscribe two years at a time. Oddly, I’ve noticed on the address label of the issue I receive each year immediately following the Spring issue (typically February) that I’ve lost a month off my subscription! I’ve noticed this for the past four years running, so it’s not a one-time occurrence. Blade Magazine has been good to correct the problem the two times I called, but each time the customer service person has not previously heard of the problem. This may only be happening to me, but you might want to double check your own subscription. I’ll be curious to know if my situation is indeed unique or not.
