I know we're all going to do it, so I guess we could keep it neat and tidy by putting it all in one thread. So here goes, JUST post about your new issue in this thread, don't discuss or reply, that way new members can easily see what output we're all responsible for!
I finished this zine a couple of months back, but I've been terrible at keeping up with the happenings on this here board so I thought I'd post a bit of info about it.
Features contributions from Andrew Culture (Beat Motel), Sam Page (Punknews), Edd Baldry (Last Hours), illustrations by Alison Hedley and some other articles by me including Gogol Bordello, Dick Lucas (Subhumans / Citizen Fish), Inner Terrestrials, Barack Obama, Mia Riddle, Propagandhi, Protesting against the BNP, Vegan Recipes and more.
Footprint said some very nice things about it after they printed it here.
It's available from the following places at the moment:
Corndog Zine Distro (www.corndog.co.uk)
Punker Bunker, Brighton
...or alternatively directly from me at gigs or mail order.
If any one is interested in trading please let me know as I'm always happy to swap with other zinesters.
MOON ROCKS ISSUE 5 - THE SEA ISSUE.

BRAINSCAN 25-This zine has been five start and stop years in the making. I finally finished it in October of 2009 at the Anchor Archive zine residency in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
Brainscan 25 Chronicles my Saturn return as a love story, an ending, and a new beginning with someone from my past. The Saturn Return is the time between ages 27 and 30 when the planet Saturn is in the same place it was at your birth. It is usually seen as a harbinger of change and a test of character where individuals are forced to evaluate their life in relation to their values. Brainscan 25 documents my life between 2004 and 2006 which was full of upheaval and questioning my path and choices in life. The linear story is spliced with narrative flashbacks from 1996-1999 full of punk shows, travel stories and the difficulty of dealing with emotions and the insecurities of growing up. Text heavy with high contrast cut and paste layout and photocopier art.
Brainscan 25 is 80 pages, legal sized (8.5"x7") transparency acetate and cardstock covers, and an envelope containing a 16 page epilogue.
BRAINSCAN 24 is a mini zine with answers to questions I'm frequently asked and random facts like how I was made in Canada, am left handed, and was the very first Aquacadet. 32 pages and 1/8th legal (3.5" x 4.25")
I put out #2 of Ordinary out a while ago, but it's still available for $2 or trade. There's a description on my profile.
also, I've got an 8 page mini with cute kitten pictures ($1 or trade, and it wouldn't even be $1 except the postage is so darn expensive here) and JUST OUT: a 30 page 1/4 size very text heavy zine about the death of my great aunt and how that affected me, called Death Never Says My Dear. There's also lines of e e cummings poetry, and pictures of dinosaurs. it's a weird little thing, but I kinda like it. I'd love to share :)
The third issue of my perzine Yard Sale! is finished and done. You get 36 pages of baking, Canzine, cold weather, and failed bike rides with a full-color cover for the first time. Plus, anyone who buys a copy gets a free bonus photograph.
My friend Jen also just finished her new zine this kitty. which is a pop perzine about life in small town Ontario. I'm selling copies for her through my Etsy store at http://alongwaltz.etsy.com/
Trade or sales are fine with me.
They won't let me attach photos here for some reason so go to my profile for images and excerpts.
