a place for zinesters - writers and readers
PILTDOWNLAD # 7 IS OUT NOW:
Piltdownlad is a personal narrative zine. Each issue centers on a true story.
Issue 7 is "The Murky Realm," a biographical sketch of a tragic union with some creative engineering...
My parents never should have gotten married. But even though my father was gay and my mother was chemically imbalanced, this was the 60s, when single men in their forties did not identify as queer and people with personality disorders were rarely diagnosed, much less treated. And marriage was inexorable. The tragedy, of course, is that five children came out of this unhappy coupling. But that's not the point of this story. That comes later. "The Murky Realm" is about how these two people got together, fell apart, came back together, then fell apart again only to get back together again...
The story is pieced together from what we were told growing up, what I remember from my father's various tales and walking a mile in both their shoes as an adult.
The text is typewritten on my Olympia Manual.
The size is 5.5 x 7 and the cover is cardstock with a handwritten title piece glued on.
The first printing is limited to 50 numbered copies.
The page count is 44.
Available for trade or $3 via etsy.
But I prefer trades.
