New Escapologist

I’m the publisher and editor of New Escapologist, a biannual magazine of wise and funny writing.

The magazine was out of production for five years but returned triumphantly in 2023.

In the interim, the blog never stopped and the back catalogue (Issues 1-13) remains in print.

Praise for the magazine

“a wonderful magazine” — Monocle Radio’s The Stack

“Entertaining and highly literate reading, even if you’re relatively content with wage slavery.” — Moneysense.

“Ambitious, elegantly-designed, literary.” — Yahoo! News.

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

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

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

“A splendid publication. So cheerful and light, yet with a ninja-sharp intellect hiding just beneath the surface.” — Mr. Money Mustache
