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

Hey Folks,

Aberration Labyrinth is looking for horror submissions as well! 

Aberration Labyrinth is a baby as far as poetry rags go, but our claws are out and ready to strike the web with gusto. Our goal is to publish a small amount of AMAZING work (about 10 poems every month). But, we're not looking for just anything. This is a publication that plans to blur the lines of traditional poetry. Too many publications have a narrow definition of what poetry is or what it should be. We done. In fact, we treasure poetry that strays from the path. We want raw, evocative, emotional poetry. We love imagery. While we don't traditionally like rhymes, we are not opposed to them if they are done well. We love the free verse; we also love the aubade. The form is up to you.
 
We do not want:
  • Nature Poems
  • Religious Poems
  • Boring Poems
Instead, please send us:
  • Trash Poetry
  • Nerdy Poetry
  • Horror Poetry
For more on what we're looking for, please visit our submissions page.


At this time, we cannot offer compensation for our work (other than some potential web fame). We will, however, post a .pdf version of each issue, available for download. This blog is the beginning of our adventure and we hope to move towards a print edition in the future. We may even be able to pay... one day... in the future.


For now, please submit your work so we can make this happen. If you're not a writer, please check back often. We promise to give you something good.

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 papermonsterpress@yahoo.com 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.
