Capitalism and literature—they’ve just never really gone that well together in a post-streaming world. Unless you count the more franchisable “literature” (you know, the Bridgerton series… that sort of ilk). Print magazines, obviously, are not lucrative and extremely difficult to sell outside of a “it’s the 1960s and Esquire is at its peak” milieu. Anyone who tells you otherwise, well, ask them for a sample of whatever it is they’re smoking. All that said, the most recent editions of The Opiate can be purchased through online mediums that you’ll see in the Previous Issues section. For those seeking a particular issue that’s further back in the timeline, reach out via email@example.com.
Our entire catalogue is also available to purchase digitally here.
