Lobster magazine began in 1983. Its initial focus was on what was then called parapolitics - roughly, the impact of the intelligence and security services on history and politics - but since then has widened out to include contemporary history and politics, economics and economic politics, conspiracy theories, and contemporary conspiracist subculture.
The current issue of Lobster is available on-line, free. The previous issues, all the way back to 1983, or articles from them, are available on-line for a small fee (the fees pay the cost of the website) or as a CD-Rom (More information below). Most issues up to number 57 are available in hard copy from the editor.
