a place for zinesters - writers and readers
I only print 400!
You are totally right that not all of those zines review other zines, I ought to start a new sheet on that spreadsheet!
Ciao Andrew, I've just read a review of Beat Motel #7 in Zine World and it seems to be good. I happen to have a blog devoted to mail art and zines that features zine reviews:
I also contribute reviews for Xerography Debt, and the reviews I write for my blog end up in the XD blog too. So if you want, you can send me a copy of your zine. My address is:
Cheers - Gianni
Not sure if it is of any use to you guys but there's a really 'established' (7 years running) website in Spain that reviews all zines in Spanish. Thought of mentioning it in case some of you write bilingual zines and/or are interested in learning more about the (very) active zine scene in my country.
As you can see on the website's front page, zines (or fanzines as they call it here; I much prefer to call them zines) are reviewed by category ( art, literature, music and so on) ...
I must confess I tend to visit this website to read the section 'Fanziner@ del mes' (Zinester of the month) as I love reading about others' influences, how they started out as zinesters and what zines they recommend. Fun reading!
Apart from that there's a handful of us in Spain either making zines in English (moi :) ) or able to communicate in the language and into trading with zinesters from other countries so if any of you is interested I can get you in touch with some of my fellow zinesters.
I have the feeling Nieves Books in Switzerland also reviews zines so worth checking that out too! They are especially into art zines.
And someone mentioned to me that there's quite an active zine scene in Chile but Mr Google is not helping me much in finding out links / further info on this.
is fanzine fanatique still going? anyone know were i can get a copy? last hours reviews loads of stuff too
