Knave magazine is a long-established British pornographic magazine, published by Galaxy Publications Limited. Originally launched in 1968, it is the upmarket sister publication of Fiesta magazine. Mary Millington modelled for the magazine in 1974, prior to her exclusive signing to work for David Sullivan‘s magazines.
Along with many other adult magazines, Knave has published the works of popular authors, including Kim Newman, Dave Langford, and Neil Gaiman. Gaiman’s early short stories, including “We Can Get Them for You Wholesale“, were published within the magazine; he also worked at the magazine in many roles, including celebrity interviewer and book reviewer. Gaiman began work at the magazine in 1984 but left in the late 80s because an editorial change resulted in the magazine concentrating more heavily on pornographic content.
Eric Fuller, credited by The Guardian as “the man behind the success of Dennis Publishing‘s lad-mag, Maxim“, also worked for the magazine for a time.
