Issue Ten, Out Now!


Tell Him Your Plans is the title of our bumper tenth issue. It comes from the joke: How do you make God laugh? Tell Him your plans. The joke sits at the heart of this issue’s theme: absurdity.

The issue has interviews with acclaimed novelist EWAN MORRISON and master comedian RICHARD HERRING.



We’ve also got David Cain from Raptitude on his new-found, post-job liberty; Robert Wringham on the disorienting pleasure of walking through the wrong door; Reggie C King on Ambrose Bierce; Dickon Edwards on Pinter; a new essay from Justin Reynolds; and a story of sick-day freedom by Allan Wilson.

If that weren’t enough, there’s an astonishing cameo from the Wise Space Baby from the end of 2001: a space odyssey! What would he make of all this? I think he’d like it.

104 independently-produced, beautifully-typeset, entertainingly-illustrated pages for just £6 (or £5 on PDF).

It’s an astonishing tenth issue. Our biggest and arguably best to date.

Robert Wringham is the editor of New Escapologist. He also writes books and articles. Read more at
