We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

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!

This new issue features what amounts to an all-star cast of the periodical’s recent contributors. Get it, print it up, or however you best enjoy, & dig deep in. Start anywhere, & keep going till you stop, smiling, provoked, worked out in mind & heart.

The Sampler has been coming out annually for a dozen years now, distilling the issues of The Cenacle for a given year into one chapbook of highlights. My thoughts this year are to distribute this periodical farther & wider than before, picking up the idea I had for it when it first began in 1999.

4.     Within’s Within: Scenes from the Psychedelic Revolution Archives

Archives link: http://scriptorpress.com/withinswithin.html
I began doing this radio show in 1999, locally at Radio Free Cambridge (R.I.P.), & beginning in 2000 at Allston-Brighton Free Radio (R.I.P.). After a time away, resumed doing this show in 2003 online at SpiritPlants Radio. Through moves that included Connecticut, Washington State, Oregon, & a return to Massachusetts, I kept on doing this show. Over the course of time, I built up an online show archives that, including recent additions, includes 178 of the show’s 380 episodes (and counting). I’d like to invite you to visit the show’s archives, read the show summaries, listen to some, download them if you wish. It’s a long time labor of love, and my pleasure to share the music, words, & other art I’ve featured on it.
5.     Burning Man Books becomes TransArtBooks (TAB)
Link: http://www.scriptorpress.com/nobordersbookstore.html
From 1999 to 2009, I prepared & brought the growing number of titles of the Burning Man Books series (KD began going with me in 2004) annually to the Burning Man Arts Festival in Black Rock City, Nevada. I, then we, called our project the No Borders Free Bookstore, & gifted thousands of chapbooks of poetry, prose, & artwork to people there. Since 2009, No Borders Bookstore has lived exclusively online.
Now I’ve decided to continue the series under the name TransArtBooks (funny little word play there) & find a new venue to continue the No Borders Bookstore aspect of this project. It’s taken awhile for me to get re-settled in Boston, & so the first TAB titles will not be coming until the summer of 2012. Until then, & of course beyond, I invite you to visit the above link & peruse the many, many good books that can be freely downloaded. You’ll find hours of good reading times just waiting there for you.
6.     Labyrinthine / Many Musics Projects
Labyrinthine link: http://www.scriptorpress.com/labyrinthine.pdf
Many Musics link: http://www.scriptorpress.com/manymusics/one.html
Labyrinthine & Many Musics, the former fixtion & the latter poetry, have been my major writing projects for about 5 years now. I’ve been posting new pages of each as they are published in The Cenacle. They can be read at the above links. I would greatly like more people to read these works, as they have been traveling with me for a long time now, & will continue to do so for a fair while to come.

KD & I very much hope you enjoy the new releases of these various projects. A lot of talented people have contributed their talents & time. Additionally, if you have an artistic skill, or would like to develop one, write to me, Perhaps we can collaborate on making this wish come to pass.
