Issue Four in the pipeline

Rejoice! Work has officially begun on the fourth issue of New Escapologist, due for release in early August. This issue’s main topic is Mauvaise Foi: a concept discussed by Existentialist philosopher, Jean-Paul Sartre whose rather handsome severed head is pictured to the left.

As a point of interest, Sartre also wrote the play, No Exit, which was one of the early title suggestions for our very own magazine (along with Ejector Seat and Scarpering Quarterly and other things too terrible with hindsight to contemplate).

Issue Four is now available to pre-order for £5. The cover price is likely to be £6 so take advantage of this early-bird price.

Freelance writers, illustrators and laypeople with ideas are welcome to send work, pitches or suggestions. Just check our brief contributor guidelines first.

The Practicalities Issue will be a hard act to follow but I think Issue Four will be something special nonetheless.

    I just bought the first three issues. I’ve been escaping on my bike. It’s been awesome to give the middle finger to society by doing something so incredibly productive as bicycle riding.

    I would highly recommend getting in on the game for anyone who finds this site intriguing.

    Thanks guys.

    Cheers for buying our issues, Tim. I hope you’re enjoying them.

    Funnily enough, I’ve been thinking about cycling a lot lately. Until recently, I lived in Glasgow where I was always too frightened of crazy motorists and discouraged by the steep inclines, so always decided to be a proud pedestrian instead. I’m in Montreal now though, where the cycling infrastructure is very good indeed. Might have to give it a bash.
