New Escapologist is not just a blog. It’s not a blog at all really.
This blog is the online companion to a printed publication called (you guessed it) New Escapologist. The print editions are painstakingly typeset, printed on quality paper, have book-style spines so that they look good on your shelf, are written and illustrated by writers and artists from all over the world, and have their own team of cheerful smurf-like editors. We are very committed to the old-fashioned world of print, even though we support the enterprise with this website.
Our online activities are the tip of the iceberg: little more than a singing and dancing business card. Contents of the print editions are not usually posted here, and idle thoughts from the blog don’t usually survive into print.
The purpose of the blog is to help build a kind of community around our work; to keep everyone posted about it; to share links, quotes, and quick thoughts; and to solicit your Escapological ideas, feedback and thoughts. If you like the blog, the print editions will blow your brains out. In a good way.
We value your blog comments, your email, your tweets, retweets, social bookmarks, and mentions on Facebook. It all helps to keep our enthusiasm going. I’m not sure we’d be up to our seventh print edition if it weren’t for the online companionship.
As it goes, though, do remember that this is all to support our print editions, available always in our ye olde internette shoppe. Thanks! x
