Stolen Sharpie Revolution: A DIY resource for zines and zine culture needs your help...

Sorry if this seems self serving to post about, but I sort of see my project Stolen Sharpie Revolution as a community project and the more info I get from the rad zine community the better it will be!

Stolen Sharpie Revolution is a book I put together as a DIY giude for zines. There have been 3 printings since 2002 and I'm working on the 4th right now. I'm actually calling it Stolen Sharpie Revolution 2 because a lot has changed over the years and I had added a lot of new stuff. The printing has been delayed forever due to a large variety of things... usually money related. But I have the funds together now so here's where I need your help.

In the back of each edition of Stolen Sharpie Revolution I have listings of distros, stores that sell zines, zine libraries, zine events and more. I need you help because I can't really travel all over the world in search of illusive zine events (but that would be awesome!) I need your eyes and ears in the corners of the world to help SSR2 be the best print resource for zines.

I have pretty extensive listings as it is but the more the merrier. I would love it if you would mention shops or distros or whatever in this discussion thread and I'll let you know if they are included. Also, if you have a new distro let me know and I'll let you know the info I need to get it included in SSR2.

Thanks so much for being patient with me!

oh and there are a few london events that are happening:
http://comicsandzines.wordpress.com/ THE ALTERNATIVE PRESS FAIR
http://www.londonmet.ac.uk/thewomenslibrary/whats-on/events/worksho... THE WOMENS LIBRARY ZINE FEST
and
http://www.theforest.org.uk/bb/viewtopic.php?f=72&t=5642 ZINE-O-RAMA in Edinburgh
i would check with these guys if they do the events more often but they all seem to be at least annually.
This is another reason I'm slacking on getting the new one out. There are so many exciting things going on with new distros and events and even this site!

Yup feel free to leave your info for your distro here in this format or e-mail me at brainscanzine@gmail.com

I would love it if you listed my zine, Ms Valerie Park (http://www.msvaleriepark.blogspot.com/)
It's out of Olympia, Washington.
There's also a good zine library at Last Word Books (211 East 4th Ave. Olympia, WA 98501) and at the Olympia Library (313 8th Ave SE, Olympia, Wa 98501).
Thanks for asking!
I spent awhile researching these shops and think I found contact info for most of them. Thank you so much for this!

Just took another look at this and "Zine" must have been a typo.
