a place for zinesters - writers and readers
Agreed. This original question was part of a larger venture I was trying to solve. I do use ejunkie and sell merch now on my site/blog, plus I use the same service to have a free downloadable mini zine.
I also plan to publish an e-book that I would price very low, but it's not a zine. So the solution I have now works for both of my unrelated ventures.
Nice to still see discussion on this after a while :)
