Publications > Scream City > Scream City Issue #1

Scream City (or My cat's Eric if you prefer) is a new fanzine devoted to Manchester music, arts, books and that ubiquitous catch-all "popular culture". Born during a eureka moment in the margins of a boring meeting, its aim is to inform, entertain and to not to have me do all the writing for once. To that end I am eternally grateful to the many people I have hassled and bribed (but mainly just hassled) to let me have new and different bits of writing.

Some untruths about Scream City

ii. Er.
iii. That's it.
Happy reading!
