In which G.M. Norton rejoices at reaching double figures.
Well chumrades, Spring has now sprung with daffodils standing as flowery proof. As we’re now in a new season, it means that a new edition of In Retrospect magazine is available for your reading pleasure.
As Editor-at-Large, I’m not entirely impartial but I do genuinely mean it when I bash the following words onto my fancified electronic typewriter – the latest issue of In Retrospect is an absolute corker!
If you don’t believe the word of an aspiring gentleman (and if you don’t, you should ignore those spurious rumours), then do meander over to the magazine’s webular site and cast your eye over a few preview articles. If those carefully crafted articles aren’t enough to tempt you into subscribing forthwith then I will eat my straw boater.
Now, you may be surprised to learn that my favourite part of the magazine is not the opinion piece that I write. Oh no. The part that I always look forward to reading when we’re poring over a first draft is the cover fashion feature. This time, it’s ladies dressed in workwear and propping up the bar after a hard day’s toil. Splendid stuff.We’re making a few changes behind the scenes to help the magazine flourish and prosper. This has included extending a warm welcome to some lovely new volunteers that have taken on editorial and correspondent roles. After all, a magazine doesn’t write or sell itself so we need as much help as possible.
Although we are read around the world and have a growing band of loyal readers, we’re still a very small outfit and just keeping the magazine going can be an enormous challenge. That’s why every sale, or even better, a subscription, really does count.
