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 Issue #002 will not be published until September 5th, but during the month of August we will publish and "feature" one poem every other day.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.
Aberration Labyrinth is looking for horror submissions as well!
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: ASUANG by PAPER MONSTER PRESS Asuang is an umbrella term for creatures that people our imagination. As blood suckers, they engender in us, a fear of the dark, of morbidity, of paleness, of incense. The fear that desires, the fear that suffocates, not just creatures but open spaces and high places. Fear of beings that when looked at mirrors or through other eyes, resemble perhaps, ourselves? Then here maybe, there be monsters? Asuang then calls not just for darkness but for hallucinogen, psychedelia, kaleidoscopic narratives in whatever genre. Specifically, we ask for: 1. 1-3 poems/ essays/ flash fiction (less than 500 words, English or Filipino) 2. 1-3 artworks in black/ white (in JPEG format) 3. 1-3 sound pieces in MP3 or Wav format 4. Critical essays about the small press/ underground publishing/ the culture of fanzines (also under 500 words) 5. Reviews of any issue of Paper Monster Press (and we’ve done 6 so far) a. Pyrotechnic Poetry 1 b. Pyrotechnic Poetry 2 c. S/trip-hop d. Dream(pop) e. Queer Punk f. SANDIGmaan 6. A theme for 1 print year Ex. LOST IN TRANSLATION year a. Issue 1: Atlantis (about forgetting/ resurfacing/ the abyss/ depths/ drowning/ swan diving) b. Issue 2: Free Tibet (about culture clash/ Buddhism/ heights/ climbing/ pure dizziness of clouds) c. Issue 3: Time-space Warp (about timezones/ cultural differences/ time and space/ reincarnation/ and the endless echoes we can never reach) d. Issue 4: Labyrinths (canals/ road bridges/ the strange and devious routes we take to fantasy/ intoxication/ escape) THE FINE PRINT 1. Send all submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org with the heading: ATTN: ASUANG SUBMISSION 2. The deadline for submissions is on May 31, 2012. 3. Payment is one contributor copy and that warm fuzzy feeling that comes from seeing your name in print. ;) VIVA SMALL PRESS!
Dear Shane, I tried to kill myself
This zine chronicles my last severe depressive episode leading up to and including my suicide attempts and subsequent hospitalization. It's honest and raw and most definitely triggering (suicide, depression, self injury, disordered eating, gender dysphoria, criminal activity, anxiety, grief), but I wrote it with the idea in mind, what would have made me feel less alone when I was feeling incredibly depressed and suicidal every single minute of every day? I identify as trans and queer and my zine couldn't escape the smattering of queerness that is injected into every part of my life; the zine was originally a letter penned to a boy I had a huge crush on at the time. I feel really proud of this zine, and I'm hoping you'll like it, too.
There's more info (and the cover, which could be triggering, also) on my blog post.
The zine is 101 pages, half sized, $6 or trade. Message me or shoot me an e-mail to johnnyseesstars at gmail dot com.
No More Coffee #4/Brainscan #29 now available (split with Alex Wrekk of Brainscan). 44 pages of short fiction, alternately sweet, goofy, and morose: $3 or trade. email@example.com or message me!
I haven't traded zines in ages, and I'm psyched to trade with folks from this group.
This is my first photo zine of my grandmother and her former home (where she looked after me as a child) in New York. The original photographs were developed and printed by me.
"Untitled" Zine. (24 pages, 5.5 in. by 8 in., black and white)

I have this zine that is mainly about violent, premeditated death, so i thought you guys might wanna have a look :)
It's called Le Stoner's Digest and you can find it on my Etsy shop : http://www.etsy.com/shop/inoxid
"Le Stoner's Digest is a new fiction zine written by two french dudes ( with some help from Displaced Snail's very own J. Carlough!). It is sleazy, violent, fun, what can i say, it's PULP as FUCK.First issue is about big knives and psycho killers, and you should not let your kids read it. I mean, seriously, why would you give them some cheap-ass zine when they could be entertaining themselves with Cosmopolitan or some cool mag with high-end cars and big boobs?Contains 5 profanity-littered original stories, and plenty of illustrations. 32 A5 pages of gorgeous 120g paper, with a manly 200g cover, and the supplement is a short story by Phillibert Mossberg printed on that awesome but weirdly formatted paper i once found in the street in Paris. True story!"

I JUST joined here, recently started self publishing my own/others zines focusing on scifi multicultural multidimensional anthropology existential etce etc....one of the zine releases for December is certainly on topic here, and author is a good friend of mine, so I would like to promote here. . .
MECONIUM - Daniel Brigman
"Meconium is the first bowel movements of an infant, composed of materials ingested in the uterus," writes Brigman as to overarching theme of this release. Exquisite stark journey depicted through faint indications of form/content, often obscured un/intentionally and also coherent enough to generate hidden visions; interposed throughout with hand-written poetry collected over the years as an opaque narrative of loss and degradation of human relationships. Akin to a zine of Merhige's film journey "Begotten" with some perhaps similar themes/asthetics. For the faint of heart.
I also uploaded an interview on this "Meconium" on my site
I am down for trades especially similar asthetics/themes, alternately I have paypal, all info is on site Thank you and look forward to this community
