The Sandspout will be issued alongside the shop’s publishing interest, the ABPress. Its content will be serendipitous and random. A new, fourth issue will be available for 6th February.
The magazine started as an in-house project in the Albion Beatnik Bookstore, Oxford, which costed in December 2017. To date there has been three issues. Each issue highlighted new writing from people associated with the shop and the many writing groups that would meet there. It included commentary, blog style pieces, fiction, either extract or short pieces, and poetry.
