Issue Four: a sneak preview

Most of the content for our latest printed edition, Issue Four: the Mauvaise Foi Issue has been received and the editing process has begun.

There are some excellent essays in this issue, and it’s been especially fun to return to a more esoteric style after the practicalities-orientated approach of Issue Three.

The content of Issue Four looks something like this:

– Editorial: For Madmen Only (Robert Wringham)
– The Bad Faith of beach holidays (Tim Eyre)
– How to rewrite your script (Neil Scott)
– The Catholic Worker Movement (Tom Mellors)
– Neuro-Linguistic Programming (Matt Caulfield)
– How to use a library (Rob Westwood)
РReclaim the Fluchtverdächtiger (Robert Wringham)
– Nothing but time: vagabonding with a young family (Stephen Barry)
– Citizen’s Income (Sam Nair)
– Escaping Distractions (Neil Scott)
– The road to Auschwitz (David M Gross)
– When my will wouldn’t (Ishmael Gradsdovic)
– On Running (Jonathan O’Brien)
– Please shop responsibly (Samara Leibner)
– It’s the little things (Shanti Maharaj)
– How I trumped Bad Faith and quit my day job with three emails (Jon Ransom)
– Mauvaise Foi comes to Busytown: a fable (Robert Wringham)
– Filling the void (Robert Wringham)
– Title TBC (Fabian Kruse)
– In Sickness & in Health; A Study of Three Poor Men: Flaubert, Sartre & Myself (Reggie C. King)

Of course, some of these titles will seem mysterious now. You’ll have to wait for the issue’s release to see what they’re all about.

Issue Four will be released officially on 16th August. Early orders (including subscriber and contributor copies) will be shipped on the same day. To pre-order (or to buy back issues and subscribe), visit our online shop.
