The lovely horrible stuff

The theme of the next issue of New Escapologist will be MONEY.


It will be released in August, titled Take the Money and Run.

In this issue — our ninth — we ask impertinent questions of an economist; discuss the idea of citizen’s income as a possible escape route for all; tap on the glass of some belljar utopias; learn how to rob a bank; hear the confessions of a serial homeowner; and examine the fine arts of malingering and truancy. All over a finely-typeset 90 pages.

We can also reveal that one of our several special guests is none other than Mr. Money Mustache, who was recently featured in the Washington Post.

You can now pre-order Issue Nine in both print and PDF.
