It is common in the rag mag biz to offer two years for a bit of discount. My Science Fiction subs were similar (4 monthlies) But they still send out renewal notices. If you re-sub for 2 years each year, eventually you’ll have a lifetime sub!
I have not heard of Oxford American before. What’s it like? Says they are a literary, but is that stories, reviews, or non fiction? I looked at some articles and saw a few typos, oddly.
