New Escapologist: the book

blankThere’s a New Escapologist book on the way. It’s called Escape Everything! and we need your help to fund it. Written by Robert Wringham and to be published by Unbound, we need to make a certain amount of money through pre-orders and pledges before release.

Order a copy and be rewarded not only with a witty and exciting new book but also your name printed inside as a supporter. There are other reward packages on offer for larger pledges including bundles of New Escapologist magazines and opportunities to sit down with Mr Wringham. The ~300 page hardback is priced at £25 (or £10 for the eBook). ★ Go here to buy or pledge today ★
