Foul Play is a new kind of true crime magazine.
We reject sensational exposés and instead choose to investigate the cultural and social significance of crime.
Rather than encouraging readers to revel in macabre details of a human being's demise we direct you to look at what led to that crime or how its aftermath was dealt with. Sometimes we'll find corners of the story that may seem insignificant, but we think are worthy of our time.
Foul Play is not looking to profit from pain or hound people for the perfect paparazzi shot of a murderer. We won't be tapping any victims' phones for a juicy scoop. We report about crime remembering that there are humans on both sides: the victim and the perpetrator.
FOUL PLAY ISSUE TWO.
We're delighted to announce that issue 2 will be publishing on 30th April -- and it's looking criminally good (if we do say so ourselves).
We introduce our first theme: Crimes Against Nature. Botanical theft, fowl play and how one unlikely man staged the greatest natural history heist of all time. Also, we meet an artist who collected over 8000 dime-bags to highlight one city's drug problem, plus there's also our usual advice for what the discerning true crime fan should be reading, watching and listening to.
