I've just finished the Ken Chronicles #34, a 24-digest-sized-page zine (plus cover wrap). Inside are some LOCs, stories about travel, a local car show, thoughts on retirement, reviews of music, movies, books & zines, and more (with photos interspersed throughout). $3 postpaid to the USA but always interested in trades (perzines, travel zines, etc., what have you got?)

That looks pretty good Keffer. Sending you a message now.

The first issue of The Real Ramona! 48 lovingly hand-stapled pages of the whys and wherefores of Post -Traumatic Stress Disorder, how to spot a crappy therapist, and cats gone but not forgotten. Please message me or email me at therealramonazine@gmail.com if you'd like to trade.

Hi Guys!

Just finished my first issue of wandering home, a perzine with journal entries chronicling a cross Canada trip (one city per issue) as well as journal entries from age 12-present.

A little reflection on my life, and how your perspective changes the older you get. Issue one features journal entry from sixteen, the beginning of our trip, as well as some random writings.

just looking to trade at the moment, shoot me an email if you're interested!

Just completed the latest issue of the Ken Chronicles (#33): 32 digest-sized pages (including covers). It features non-fiction & photos about side jobs I've worked over the years; tabling at Pete's Candy Store Mini Zine Fest; things that break or go wrong around the house; plus some zine reviews and random thoughts.

On its way to my regular trading partners and available to all for $3 (pp to USA) or possible trade (what have to got?)

*Looking for Perzines*

I'm someone who likes to research before jumping in, so I would love to take a look at some perzines before completing my own. I'd love to do some swaps and am happy to swap Dear Anonymous 1 & 2 (two zines) for one perzine. Check out my page for more info and such. I do live in Australia, so please keep postage costs in mind.

I'm editing a zine called Other People's Shit, on "anything and everything related to miseries that are not (exclusively) my own". If you feel so inclined - you can contribute by simply filling the survey below as candidly as possible, or if you have anything else you'd like to submit - artwork, essays, comics, short stories, anything - PM me! (Surveys are anonymous)

Thank you so much!

It's....It's....It's a zine! A zine is born! 'Different Shades of Normal #3 presents:

The rewind and fast-forward edition.' This perzine spans 21 years of writing. It includes failed relationships, depression, self-destruction, grief, self-care, etc. This perzine is typed and is 38 pages. Hurry and get it soon before it goes beddy-bye!

The latest issue of my perzine, the Ken Chronicles (#32, August, 2014) is now available to all for $3 (postpaid to USA) or possible trade (what have you got?) This issue is digest-sized, 24 pages plus covers, and contains part two (and the conclusion) of my story about all the jobs I've worked in my life. Also, some reviews of movies, zines and music, plus my tale of tabling at this year's Brooklyn Zine Fest, and various random thoughts and oddities.
