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!

Do libertarian zinesters believe in or care about prisoner rights?  Are any doing anything about prisoner oppression?

Below is the answer I gave to the question on the WMZ group Political Zinesters. (This groups was apparently deleted shortly after I joined. I hope it wasn't because I was "creepy".)

Yes, I write a political zine, of sorts. It's called Rambles to T(L)C, and it's for an APA (Amateur Press Association), and as such, is called an "apa-zine". Here's a link to Google's APA forum that might fill you in about what APA's are all about. (I hope it works. I don't know why it's so long. It's what came up with I copied and pasted.)

http://apatalk.googlegroups.com/web/BlueMoonSpecial-2009-2.pdf?hl=e...

Googling "Amateur Press Association" will get you to the Wikipedia article on it.

My zines are from an "animal-rights libertarian" perspective, and also explore "life issues" from a libertarian perspective----war, the death penalty, abortion, euthanasia.
They also have touched upon the rights and responsibilities of children and mentally ill, challenged or disabled adults (with alzhiemers, schizophrenia, mongolism, etc.).

I published LIVE AND LET LIVE from 1992 to 2003.

That was supplanted by IN CONSEQUENCE OF THESE FACTS, with a similar, but slightly different focus. I've only done 4 issues of that, and they were widely spaced. I hope to do another soon, but as always, such hopes are easier expressed that done.

At this time, my main "political zine" is Rambles to T(L)C [The Libertarian Connection], but that also has other miscellaneous that reflects the interests of the other APA members. [APA's involve a lot of discussion with others].

Rambles to T(L)C is available for a SASE, Trade, or The Usual, and is usually about 8 to 12 standard pages. James N. Dawson, P.O. Box 292, Malden, WA 99149.

I'd like to see more people join The (Libertarian) Connection. I hope to have a "sales pitch" for that on this sub-forum, and maybe the WMZ main forum, soon.

So glad I'm not alone here! I am especially interested since you are a left-libertarian...recently I had a friend (who was just learning about libertarianism) make a comment about a website where people called themselves left-libertarians, and he didn't think it was possible. I had to tell him how much extreme libertarians/voluntaryists have in common with the left. Can't wait to read your stuff! In my last zine there is not that much on the libertarianism, but there is some ;-)

Hi Samantha,

I guess you discovered I was a libertarian from my forum, and must of seen what an "unorthodox" libertarian I am too.

Anyway, I dropped some zines in the mail box this morning, so rather than write much right here, I'll let you just read those, and comment on them if you feel like.

Chris Lempa is a left-libertarian but despite my frequently bugging him, he hasn't sent me any zines in a while.

Have you heard of Erwin "Filthy Pierre" Strauss's The Connection. It's "vaguely" libertarian. It'd be nice to get more libertarian zinesters/papernetters involved in that. It's in a rather sorry state.

Talk to you later.
James
