I love you, Lieutenant. #1-3 by Victoria Manifold.
A5, 16 pages photocopied. Free.
A sweet cut & paste fanzine in the true sense - one with a fanatical devotion to everyone's favourite US TV detective: Columbo*.
Readers of I love you, Lieutenant post answers about Columbo and Victoria Manifold tries to answer them: 'Is Columbo magic?', 'Is Columbo lonely?', 'What does Columbo look for in a sofa?'. Plus bonus Columbo related recipes, and gratuitous Columbo imagery. What is not to like.
You can get your hands on a copy by asking nicely:

Review by Nathan Penlington
*(A side note is relevant here - I was a very sickly kid, and between the ages of 11 and 13 I spent a large portion of my time being unable to do much but watch daytime TV between hospital visits. In those days daytime telly in the UK mainly consisted of Neighbours, and reruns of defunct American detective shows: Kojak, Ironside, The Six Million Dollar Man, Hawaii Five-O, Cagney & Lacey, The Magician, and yes, the best of them all - Columbo. The result is I have absurd expectations about the people that live next door, a good knowledge of diverse crime techniques that don't work, and a fondness for the man in crumpled raincoat.)
