Kaleidoscope <http://www.myspace.com/kaleidoscopemagazine> is probably 
the most well known publication from within the UK goth scene.  Focused 
primarily on music, it has good coverage of darkwave, EBM, industrial 
and gothic rock; there's also a degree of fashion and lifestyle 
coverage.  Kaleidoscope is published every quarter, and is stocked by a 
number of alternative retailers, including Resurrection Records and 
Grave News.

TWF Magazine <http://www.twfmagazine.com/> is another quarterly 
publication, and carries reviews of albums, live performances and clubs, 
along with band interviews and sections on lifestyle and fashion.  It is 
available up and down the UK; see their website for a full list of 
stockists.

Unscene <http://www.animespresso.com/unscene/> is a relatively new 
magazine, presently published every six months.  They carry a large 
number of band interviews, along with reviews, alternative photography 
and whatever else captures their interest.  Unscene can be ordered by 
cheque, PO or via PayPal (details on website).

Fanzines are also popular, but by their very nature it's difficult to 
know which ones are in circulation at any given time.  They can often be 
picked up at gigs.  Despite their lower production qualities, many 
exhibit a humorous irreverence that other publications can't match.  One 
example is Bubblegum Slut Fanzine 
<http://www.myspace.com/bubblegumslutzine>, which is covered in fake 
fur(!) and covers glam, punk and goth.

Most of the mainstream music press continues to ignore goth, as it did 
throughout the 1990s.  Rock Sound tends to be an exception to this rule, 
and seems to have a genuine interest in independent alternative music.  
Terrorizer and Classic Rock also have some limited goth coverage.  The 
NME, meanwhile, becomes more irrelevant with every passing year; they 
generally do a clueless "goth revival" piece every six months or so.
