NOT IN FRONT OF THE SERVANTS is an Aetheric Journal intended for Fellows of Good Breeding and Good Taste who appreciate Frivolous Entertainments including (but not confined to) Victoriana, Neo-Victoriana, Scientific Romances & Phantasies, Boys’ Own Adventures, Pulp Fiction, The Sensation Novel, Gothic Horror, Retro Extravagances and other Whimsicalities.
This Journal is MOST UNSUITABLE for the Lower Orders; or for Women, or Chaps of a Nervous Disposition. These folk are firmly instructed not to Read it, without the express permission of their Employer or Husband or Guardian (as Appropriate) for fear of Upsetting their Delicate Mental Balance.
Your Humble Servant,
Mild Colonial Boy, Esq.
P.S. Those Chaps who are interested in Common-sense Tory Opinions on Matters of Politics and Society may be interested in THE BOY’S OWN PAPER. This Journal is NOT for Radicals, Socialists, Suffragists, Foreigners and other Unreliable Rabble who run the risk of Apoplexy.
P.P.S. While generally considered a Matter of Entertainment – the esoteric nature of Games of Imagination & Storytelling (otherwise vulgarly known as Roleplaying Games) have caused such matters to be confined to yet another Journal, A WANDERING MONSTER, I.
