a place for zinesters - writers and readers
my nomination has to go to the manifesta girls! total stars with an amazing distro, organise great collaborative zines like reassess your weapons and melanie's colouring outside the lines, and they never fail to make me feel more excited and reinvigorated about the uk zine scene...
"And YAY for Multnomah County Library, where I work, which has a circulating zine collection, features (and pays) Zinesters Talking, and puts out a list of PDX Zine locations. http://www.multcolib.org/books/zines/"
Holy shit. These folks requested some zines from me months ago and I never got around to sending them any. They never paid me anything so it's not like I screwed 'em over or anything, but now that I remember I feel pretty stupid.
As for my zine hero- I nominate myself- Eric Lyden of the zine Fish with Legs. Because if you're not your own hero then what fucking good are you?
