Hi, all- the first press of Issue #001 of our zine "If you'd like o hear it // I can sing it for you" is done! Our zine is focused on the negotiation of an aging body and a “forgetful” self in an unaccommodating world, as well as accounts of chronic illness and the end-of-life experiences of an aging self.

You can check out our Tumblr and Facebook. Our zines are available on our webstore, where they are selling for $1.00 + postage. Thank you for your support, and I am looking forward to sharing our work with you all. Cheers!

Hi - I am working on a taphophile/grave/cemetery/death culture zine. I am looking for contributors to answer this question (30 -100 words please)

What is your grief ritual?

I am looking for day to day stories that have helped us get by, helped us honor our missing loved ones, how we keep memories alive.

Each contributor gets a copy! I need submissions to me no later than Feb. 10 2015. Email me at missmuffcake[a]aol.com

Hey friends! I recently posted a blog post about my zine and my connection to the zine community. I also put a bunch of my zines up on my etsy shop. I'd love it if you could check them out! <3

We here at MC Sunflower Jones are so excited about this new cover, we're just choking on our own vomit to tell you about it! It's all about rockstars & death. They all die...at age 27. Jimi & Janis to Kurt & Mia - stories & collages all about those doomed enough to die young. The 27 club started with bluesman Robert Johnson, before the term "Rock n' Roll" had been coined, & continues on to this day...& no, we don't bother with Amy Winehouse. We only talk about the greats! Available at our Etsy shoppe - click here! - or by emailing MCSunflowerJones@gmail.com

MC Sunflower Jones tends to right a lot about death...suicide, etc. To peruse the stacks & see all of our titles click on this! Thank you for your time, zine freaks...

Arcane Angles Zine (had trouble posting image)...see my page for additional visual info.
Summed up, it covers lesser known items about the Paranormal, the Occult, and the Bizarre with detailed research, some of my personal experiences, and some conjecture.
The 1st issue covers: 
1) EVPs (electronic voice phenomena)...i.e. voices of spirits- "What you don't know".  This is written with a lot of first hand knowledge, as I have been working with EVPs for about 2 years, and have a lot of luck through communicating with the dead through special electronic devices.  Another recurring theme of the zine is simple "how-to" explanations...such as how to records EVPs, as well as other simple paranormal endeavors.
2) The Dark Side of the Roman Catholic Church - This once again covers some of experiences in the Church, then goes into a long explanation of how some Satanists hide within the Church getting into little-known French Occult figures from the 19th century.
3) Left Handed Vodun (ie the evil side of Voodoo) - Here I try to tease out the degree of Voodoo being practiced in Houston and Texas in general, as this is where I'm from.  I trash a woman I call the "Vagisil Cream Woman" and speculate that voodoo might be practiced in the cemeteries in Galveston, TX, an Island nearby Houston.  These cemeteries contain many mausoleums that are loosely secured, devoid of caskets or bones.
This is also a sub-genre of the magazine...macabre items.
4) the last part of the first issue is entitled "The Minority of the Living:  Life Amongst Necropolises", and covers briefly the strange topic of people who have, and do live in cemeteries.
More details on the zine:
I'm trying to make every issue roughly 16 pages back and front on 8 1/2 by 11 paper in 10 pt. font.  The first issue does not contain any original artwork by me, but does have some rare and little-known photos that are quite interesting.  Later issues I plan to have more of my original artwork.  I'm trying to do four issues a year, i.e. a quartlerly publication.

Dear Labrinthians,

We are writing to inform you that Issue #001 is now live on the site. It will remain live until August 5th, 2012. Then, it will remain in our archives, indefinitely. There is a link at the very bottom of this month's issue for you to download the .pdf version of Issue #001.

This also means that the reading period for "the in-between" and Issue #002 is now open. So, send us your work! Issue #002 will not be published until September 5th, but during the month of August we will publish and "feature" one poem every other day. So, by submitting during the reading period, you are consenting to be considered for both "the in-between" and "Issue #002". If you would only like to be considered for one of these things, please specify in your submission.

Thanks!

--The Editors
