Descent subscription to a non-European address

Descent subscriptions may be taken out for one or two years. Six issues are produced per year with varying pagination, either 40 pages (the standard) or 48 pages (our bonus page editions). Publication is normally on the first Saturday of alternate months: February, April, June, August, October and December.

Please note that the British post office quotes up to six weeks for delivery by economy (surface) mail.

You may add a note concerning your subscription during checkout, for example if you wish to start with a different issue to those listed in the available options or if you would like the first issue of a gift subscription sent to you so that you can hand it over in person. These and other Frequently Asked Questions about subscriptions are covered in our FAQ list, if you require further information.

If you require more than one subscription, please order these separately to avoid potential confusion in supplying to multiple addresses. There is no problem with ordering goods at the same time as a subscription. If you are giving a present, you might wish to print a 'you have a present' gift card from a file we provide for the purpose (see the Gifts tab above).

NOTE: If you increase the number of subscriptions to two or more (using 'Quantity'), the software will not allow your order to be placed. Reduce the number ordered to one.

If you are still unsure about taking out a subscription, or are new to Descent, take a look at what our readers think of the magazine.

Giving a gift

If this subscription is a gift for a birthday or Christmas (or just because you feel like it), you won't have a physical copy of Descent to hand over. Instead, you might wish to print off a 'you have a gift subscription' file for one or two years subs, linked below. Clicking the link will open a large file; right click to save it to your own computer, then print it off. This will produce an A5 colour print.

Non-UK orders

If stock is available for all post destinations, selecting any set of options will allow you to place your order immediately.

If stock is limited, for example with a single copy of a second-hand book, it will be assigned to UK stock. If you require posting to an address outside the UK, selecting your options may not allow an order to be placed, even though stock is available. If this is the case, please contact us to enable the options you require.
