Issue Seven launch event, 5th November

You are cordially invited to our last-minute pop-up launch event at The Old Hairdressers in Glasgow.

Come and have a first look at Issue Seven of New Escapologist. Meet our eudaemonology editor Neil Scott, our editor-in-chief Robert Wringham and various other fugitives and stumblebums.

The theme of Issue Seven is “On The Lam” and features interviews with Idler’s Glossary compiler Joshua Glenn and comedian/teletubby Dave Thompson. It also contains exciting essays on Steve Jobs, literary anti-heroes, Robert Walser, apocalypse road trip movies, and much more. It features artwork from Seth, Paul Milne, Lawrence Gullo and many others. It’s a finely-typset, 100-page beast of a bookazine.

Come! Buy a copy. Get swigged up. Ignore the burning-of-celebrity-anarchists festival surely going on outside.

The NE7 Launch Spectacular: it’s basically a drink in a pub.

    Wish I could be there to meet you lot. Sadly, I’m still stuck in The African Salt Mine, but I’m making a run for the border on 7 Nov.

    Have fun!
