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!
In this issue:
Book Report...thoughts about the state of book publishing, books I've read, female authors.
Recipe...Cottage Pie and a yummy dessert.
Film Reviews...and some TV.
Ragged Philosophy...what I've been thinking about.
*Special full color art zine insert called BY HAND with printed artwork by author.
1/2 size, b&w. 20 pages.
I've got a new (excellent and cheap) printing place, so I've reprinted back issues of all my zines on recycled coloured paper (except for the purple stuff). (The red looking one is actually pink, and the lime looking one mint green too, I should add too, the tungsten wb on my camera doesn't seem to like those shades)
They're all $1 / 50p + postage, and you can get them on my etsy or by paypalling me directly.
I can afford to do trades again now, for international trades I'd prefer to swap several issues at once, because the postage is the same for 1 or 5 copies now.
Also, to anyone who ordered zines in the last few weeks, thanks for your patience. I was away from home more than expected, and got a surprisingly large amount of orders, so I built up a backlog. It's all sent out now, but thanks again for your patience.
Issue #5 of AGCR is out now and in other news, on Sunday evening, April 4th, American Gun Culture Report, the region's only independent gun politics magazine, is sponsoring an evening get together with shooting groups active in Portland.
Participating organizations include the Portland Pink Pistols, local chapter of the national gay gun club, Reed College's gun club, the Reed Shooting Sports Kollectiv (RSSK), and the Oregon Firearms Federation (OFF) whose founder Kevin Starrett will be appearing. There is no admission, but donations for the Oregon Firearms Federation's Legal Defense Fund are encouraged.
The Plan B Bar in SE Portland is our hosting venue and this event kicks off at 7pm. Each group will present on their activities as well as offering tabling and information sharing. Later in the evening, we will turn this gathering into a dance party with DJ No. 6 playing a setlist of gun themed music.
So, mark your calendar and get ready to tip back a few beers and dance to Tom Waits, Johnny Cash
and The Clash with the rest of
Portland's shooting community.
Plan B is located at 1305 SE

It's a per zine. If you ask me it's pretty funny. I don't like hyping up my zine too much. If I have to badger you into spending one measly buck or a trade then what's the bloody point of it all? 24 pages. $1 or trade. Eric Lyden 224 Moraine St Brockton MA 02301-3664.
Any questions e mail me at eric.lyde(at)gmail.com. You can try contacting me here, but I can never do jack shit on this site.
