Eulogy - UK awaits its first death magazine
Death. The final frontier. Now I hear a new UK magazine plans to boldly go into this uncharted territory. It's called Eulogy and is due for launch sometime this year. I like the title. It sounds better than fucking Dignitas. Its target readership will include those facing the loss of a loved one, the already bereaved and the seriously or terminally ill. I understand it will focus both on the commerce of death - such as inheritance tax and funeral options - and on philosophical or religious perspectives, with an emphasis on celebration of life and death. I once wrote a piece on the Macchiavellian power of the last will and testament. Readers went wild with recognition. Can't see how Eulogy can fail.
