New Escapologist

I publish and edit a magazine called New Escapologist. You can buy a copy (print and PDF) in certain bookshops or at the magazine’s own website.


New Escapologist is a magazine for white-collar functionaries with escape on the brain. We offer practical exit strategies from demeaning day jobs and celebrate the ‘flight’ bit of ‘fight or flight’.

Each issue is a compendium of funny and practical essays on the subject of escape, through the lenses of economics, travel, psychology, philosophy and the arts. We promote freedom, anarchy and the absurd.

Praise for the magazine

“Foppish, irresponsible, and very needed” – Pat Kane, Thoughtland.

“A brilliant magazine on the theme of escape (as a sane response to an insane situation)” – Brian Dean, Anxiety Culture.

“We had to wait thirty years for someone to come up with an idea like this – an indie magazine about escape attempts!!! Next step: a whole Escapology Cult.” – Prof. Stanley Cohen, co-author of Escape Attempts.

“Excellent publications which deserve a wide readership.” – Tom Hodgkinson, editor of the Idler and author of How to be Free.

“I have the latest New Escapologist on my bedside table. I go nowhere without it. And I always make sure New Escapologist is on it.” – Ian Macpherson, writer and comedian.
