About this site

"The Autumnal Man" is an independent publication launched in April 2024 by SJ Hay. Its gestation period has been long, very, very long...

All articles are free to read but if you want to know more about me, receive a newsletter or comment on the articles, you'll need to subscribe today. Or tomorrow.

It's about engagement, you see.... reading is completely passive, commenting and receiving something in your inbox requires a little commitment - your email address. Not a lot in the scheme of things but I understand if even that is a step too far. No problem.

A basic (free) subscription will get you full access to the website as well as email newsletters about new content when it's available. Newsletters will also contain subscriber-only material.

Subscribers will also be able to comment on articles, learn how to engage with me professionally (that, of course, will not be free) and have access to all past newsletters. All that for the princely sum of your email address...

Your subscription makes this site possible, and allows it to continue to exist. Thank you!
