Out Soon! Issue 10



How do you make God laugh? Tell Him your plans.

It’s a joke attributed to Woody Allen and the basis for our forthcoming bumper tenth edition: Tell Him Your Plans.

The theme is Absurdity: how to cope with the tedium of replacing toner cartridges in an infinite universe.

As well as top-notch articles and essays from all your New Escapologist favourites, we’ve got interviews with novelist Ewan Morrison and comedian Richard Herring; a tale of sick day liberation by Allan Wilson; and a thrilling escape story by Raptitude’s David Cain.

It’s one heck of an issue. Possibly our best yet.
