      International Addresses: Magazine subscriptions offered at Amazon.com can only be shipped within the 50 United States, APO/FPO address and U.S. Protectorates. We are unable to process magazines to other destinations at this time. Please contact the magazine's publisher for further assistance.

      When to Expect Your First Issue: Magazine subscriptions ordered at Amazon.com are shipped to you by the magazine's publisher. The first issue of a weekly magazine should arrive within 4-6 weeks of your order. The first issue of a monthly magazine should arrive within 12-16 weeks, unless otherwise noted.

      Once you've placed an order at Amazon.com, it can take one to two weeks for your subscription to be received and scheduled by the publisher.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Mystery Scene magazine March 13, 2006
    Subscription Term Name:1 year
    When the Armchair Detective stopped being published, I was without a good mystery magazine. I received a complimentary copy of Mystery Scene and I subscribed to it. The magazine is published 5 times per year and features great interviews and good book reviews. I especially enjoy their reviewing lesser known authors and books by independent publishers. My favorite part is the "Where Are They Now" which features authors who seem to have stopped writing a particular series, many of whom I have read in the past. An excellent publication!

    5.0 out of 5 stars A must for mystery lovers January 21, 2004
    Subscription Term Name:1 year
    Mystery Scene is a feast of fascinating articles, excellent interviews (check out Alexander McCall Smith, in the summer 2003 issue), intelligent reviews, and all kinds of information about the world of mystery writing. In addition, it's that rare magazine of any genre--an absolutely un-put-downable, cover-to-cover read!

    5.0 out of 5 stars I Recommend The Mystery Scene Magazine May 6, 2007
    By C. Jay
    Subscription Term Name:1 year
    If you like mysteries you will like this magazine. It gives you information about authors and at times you will find out snippets about unusual mysteries. This magazine also has short stories in it. I am a fledgling writer of mysteries so I appreciate Mystery Scene. I do believe, however, that a person who simply enjoys mystery stories will enjoy this magazine. I can't wait to get the next issue in the mail!
