Issue One extra features


The reformatted edition of Issue One is the definitive one but there’s a bit of stuff we cut out. As a website bonus, we’ve posted some of these ‘deleted scenes’:

The above fresco is by the almighty Pete Thoms.

There was an interview with Kim and Jason Kotecki and accompanying art by Seiglinde Cassel.

There was an interview with Dave Till, a bloke from the Findhorn ecovillage.

There were multiple Neils:



There was a spoof advertorial by myself, extolling the virtues of moving to Mars.

There was a photoshoot accompanying Lord Whimsy’s article.

There was also the orginal “air hostess” cover illustration by the minty-fresh Nick Hayes:


It’s a lovely selection but these items just didn’t fit with the new bookazine way of doing things. Rest assured, we’ve not just whipped these things out without replacing them with something new. Loads of new art and superior design. Visit the magazine shop to buy the reset edition or to subscribe.


Robert Wringham is the editor of New Escapologist. He also writes books and articles. Read more at
