a place for zinesters - writers and readers
I have a few issues left of "Girl w/Cat" #1. The premiere issue chronicles the loss of my cat Malenikiy, who died accidentally in April 2004. The zine was done in 2006. It is in the form of a funeral prayer, with chapters: Dies Irae, Lacrmosa, Calamitatis et Miseriae, Libera Me, Requiem Aeternam (those are latin words actually used in funerals). It has photos, some song lyrics, and a lot of deep-felt writing about the grief, remembrance and recovery. I have THREE copies left!! So please send me a message here before ordering, to make sure you get your copy :)
I got 6 issues of "Orange & Blue" #0. Even though "Orange & Blue" is out of print, the intro issue #0 is more like an introduction to my world, so it is still relevant. I give a glimpse into what it is to be a minority who speaks french everyday in the mostly anglophone world of zines and the dilemmas and choices you have to make in this perspective. It also presents many aspects of my town, Québec City/Lévis (on the south shore), my neighbourhood, my friends,my everyday life, cassette tape recording, diary writing,some Québec facts. It has nice "carbon paper" illustrations that I traced onto the pages of text. It was very well-liked when it came out in 2005! I have SIX copies left. All the text is typewritten.
Arcane Magazine is a french-language zine from Québec City. It talks about local music & art, street art, graffiti, poverty, social injustice, punks, homeless people, the environment, movies from Quebec and elsewhere, good books, life and society in general. Each issue is 28 pages and FILLED with content!!
