Penthouse (UK)

Country: UK

Although now thought of as a US magazine, Penthouse started as a British magazine and stayed separate from the US magazine even when the latter was launched. In the Playboy mould, it regularly published fiction, though less frequently and with less distinction than the magazine it emulated, and for some years Graham Masterton was fiction editor.

There are news reports that the magazine was relaunced some time in the 2000s but this is believed to be simply a UK distribution of the US magazine.
