Issue 13 – out now!


Here it is! Issue Thirteen: Outliers. It’s available right now, as of today, this minute in the shop.

The issue is our fattest yet at 122 pages, which is why the cover price is £7 instead of the customary £6. Sorry about that.

It’s worth it though, for we’ve got a great interview with celebrity mortician Caitlin Doughty, features by Reggie C. King on David Bowie and Sun Ra; Matt Caulfield on zen fool Ryokan; Jon Ransom on the halfway escape of part-time employment; and Jack McClure on his relocation from suburban Illinois to literally the top of Planet Earth. Come get some.

A second, even more massive announcement will follow this one, potentially upstaging it entirely and once and for all blowing your mind. Hope that’s okay.
