The Happy Reader - Issue 4
For avid readers and the uninitiated alike, this is a chance to reengage with classic literature and to stay inspired and entertained. The concept of the magazine is simple: the first half is a long-form interview with a notable book fanatic and the second half explores one classic work of literature from an array of surprising and invigorating angles. The book of the autumn will be M.P. Shiel's sci-fi masterpiece The Purple Cloud. This cult novel from 1901 involves one man's trip to the North Pole, followed by the death, due to a large poisonous cloud, of everyone on Earth...except for him. Our cover star will be revealed at publication.
