Officially announcing TWILIGHT WORLD #14, the continuing adventures of a haphazard perzine by me. For this issue, Kjartan Arnorsson (a. k. a. Karno) provides an exciting night out in Tucson on the special color cover! Inside, there’s a rare old Shmuck-O Rat strip disguised as an art jam which is also disguised as some Cheech & Chong inspired strip. Then there’s part two of my Don-O’s Zine Hall ‘O Fame with JUST enough room to review a couple of zines.

If you want, buy or trade for a copy, e-mail me at oddlystupid@yahoo.com or send $2 or trade to:

Don Fields

Grover Beach, CA


Sorry, no prisoners trades or sales.

This is a 16 page A5 colour zine made by me. It contains my favourite quotes, photos and writing from my journals. This zine is said to quite inspiring.....this zine would make a great pick me up...it only takes a moment to read but the words will stay with you for much longer. I would love to trade the happiness handbook for any type of zine , I LOVE trades! :) email me at larissa.maye19@gmail.com if you would like to trade

The latest issue of my perzine, the Ken Chronicles (#26, Feb., 2013) has just been completed. At 32 digest-sized pages (plus cover wrap) it's my biggest issue ever. The bulk of it is devoted to a three week trip we made to London, Paris, Amsterdam & several places in Germany. During our last week there we hooked up with some of my relatives that I had never met before (located them during my genealogy research). Some LOCs, a story on the oak tree that flattened our garage during Superstorm Sandy, and some video/book/zine reviews round out this issue.

$2 each, including domestic postage, but I'm always interested in trades so let me know what you've got.

okay so im creating a zine called "life despite life" and my first issue is going to be about ways to relieve stress, blue thinking,and ways to cope with life, like happiness tricks.

So have you got a really good way to beat stress? have you got any good ways to beat the blues? have you got any inspirational quotes? im looking for tips and stories you might want to share. maybe even some art or comics. reply to this discussion or email me anything to larissa.maye19@gmail.com

any contributions will be much appreciated! :)

My latest zine is up in my Etsy shop and I will have it at the Chicago Zine Fest as well. It's about how I got TESOL certified, taught English in two villages in China, learned about non-western toilets, and some tips for traveling and things you need to know before you go.

you know i have neveractually made a perzine, but the idea of it sounds nice.

Might try it one day

Comment by janelloshea on November 14, 2012 at 12:33am

Disconcerting is my perzine started in 2009. #9 spans Nov 2010 - Mar 2012 and contains 8 chapters covering fleeting happiness, life after university, a Taipei travel segment, and of course, people. And some others.

Also includes short vignettes.

The gist:
text-heavy thickest issue at 88 pages
1/4 sized
full-color cover on 300gsm nevia artcard
bound with twine


(Currently not accepting trades)

Thanks for viewing!

In preparation for printing my new zine, Travel On 4, I'm selling the first 3 issues on Etsy. $2 a piece. It's a perzine with fictional short stories, non-fiction ramblings, personal letters, and some other odds and ends...
