The latest issue of my perzine, the Ken Chronicles #40, is finished. This one has some people, places & things that aren't there anymore, a couple of DIY projects, a diary of my latest activities, lots of photos, plus some zine reviews. It's available for $3 (US) or $4 (elsewhere); also interested in possibly trading for other non-fiction, travel-related or perzines (what have you got?).

Other People's Shit, a rant.

Out of print, now available to view on issuu

A zine exploring themes of human connection + the lack thereof, and all the trials and tribulations of living a life that's indissociable from the lives of our personas, stream-of-consciousness style.

My perzine 'Fixing A Hole' issue 2, the 'Edelweiss' edition, is available for free! In this new issue: 'From Anxiety To Zen', zen meditation as a tool against anxiety disorder (not); a review of Jett Rebel's 'Truck', his stunning latest album, and four, five more or less literary pieces on codependency. Please contact me to get your fresh copy!

Soon Enough This Will All Feel Very Far Away ZINE and Dreamscapes the DEBUT ALBUM by yours truly! Take a trip into the past several years of my life through words and music. I've been piecing together this music for some time now — so if you're into jazz-infused, soulful yet spacey instrumentals PLEASE drop me a message. Also, features conversation snippets with home-bums and lovers I've had the pleasure to call friends in my time spent hitch-hiking the United States. "Soon Enough.." zine offers a complimentary narrative, introducing you to the wonderful people who have inspired me so. UP FOR TRADE or $5 for both!

check out the music here! — https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YAjAbi5n6a8

the Ken Chronicles #38 (Feb, 2016 issue) is nearly ready for mailing to my subscribers & regular trading partners. Digest-sized with 24 pages (plus cover wrap) and lots of photos, this one has lots of travel-related stories (to Montauk, Newport, NYC, Connecticut & Maine), reviews of an off-Broadway play, music, books & zines, plus some oddities and LOCs. Available to USA for $3 or possible trade (what have you got?)

Hello Perzine Writers,


I am doing a study on zine libraries and am conducting a survey to assess zine writers’ comfort levels with having their zines collected and circulated in zine libraries and archives in the US. I am both a librarian and a zine writer, and I believe it’s important for zine librarians to have a sense of how the zine community feels about having their works in zine libraries, and what (if any) factors might increase or decrease comfort levels. The survey is completely anonymous and will not collect any identifying information about participants. Ultimately, the results of the survey may be presented at an academic conference to librarians, and/or published in an academic journal.


Feel free to email me if you have any questions.


Here is the link to the survey:


(And also, you can look me up in We Make Zines; I create Alex the Zine.)

Thank you,


Anne Hays,

Instruction Librarian

College of Staten Island Library, City University of New York
