true faith : THE SPECIAL
Our weekly newsletter, THE SPECIAL will be published this Saturday morning despite there being no United match this weekend. As subscribers will have seen last week we have added a few bells and whistles to THE SPECIAL and as well as having The Little Chat (podcast) we are now adding a wee quiz to the thing to add to the enjoyment. Thanks to David X Smith for pulling that together. Any other ideas anyone might have for anything to add to THE SPECIAL (or anything else we do) please drop us a line on email@example.com
This is our fanzine within a fanzine and features the writing of our Deputy Editor, Gareth Harrison with regular writers Guy Hannay-Wilson, Mark Brophy, Alex Hurst and yours truly. The design as ever is put together by Glenn Ashcroft, who has done a brilliant job once again.
THE SPECIAL has short columns from our scribblers and we see it as a great way to fill in the moments we all spend on the way to games, waiting for mates, before KO, at half time etc. and its been especially put together to be read on smart-phones by Mags on the move. Obviously, its available to any supporter on any device they care to use and perfect on everything.
We have been paying more attention to THE SPECIAL because we have had a few grumbles about the lack of fanzine reading material on match-days, so this is our response. This means you won’t have to seek out one of our sellers outside St James’ Park or go hunting for the fella in various newsagents which often didn’t have any left or some other bollocks courtesy of our hopeless distributor. No, THE SPECIAL comes to you and its straight in your in-box early on a week-end match-day, so its more convenient than its ever been.
As well as that because THE SPECIAL is a weekly publication, you will have something new for every weekend game
Obviously, THE SPECIAL is a mere companion to the true faith DIGITAL fanzine where there are more detailed and larger pieces on all manner of Newcastle United, football and other themes.
We are also able to offer THE SPECIAL completely FREE of charge. There are no catches, no scams or anything else. Its just a bona-fide FREE publication from one set of supporters to another. Simple as that. Of course we can only commit to producing these items because we do have a growing readership taking the fanzine on subscription.
That is all.
