After the Fact is the first compilation album released by English post-punk band Magazine. It was released as a vinyl LP in 1982 by I.R.S. Records in the United States and Virgin Records (International), ), following the dissolution of the band in late 1981. The compilation drew from tracks from each of the band's studio albums and several singles. The artwork was created by Malcolm Garrett with liner notes by Paul Morley.
International and US editions of the compilation differed greatly, sharing only four songs between them. The Virgin international edition had 10 tracks, was released in a green sleeve and included only material from the group's four studio albums. No B-sides or single mixes were featured. The American I.R.S. edition had 13 tracks and was released in a red sleeve. This version included songs that hadn't previously been released in the US, the majority of which were B-sides and alternate single mixes. The US edition was released on compact disc in 1989, and is at present the only Magazine CD compilation to feature the 7" edit of the 1981 single "About the Weather".
