True Rat

A fanzine — mostly a personalzine — published by Leroy Kettle, noted for its gossip and sarcastic humour. The Kettle fanwriting collection True Rat: The Beast of Leroy Kettle (Ansible Editions, 2018) includes the complete run of True Rat with minor deletions of material that no longer seemed funny in 2018.
