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
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)

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. ;)

That would be us. :)

The dates are pending but definitely look out for the launch of Peg Powler + ARC in Stockton on Tees!

Also - if anyone would like a zine advertised in the next 'Opinionated Geordie monsters review the local band scene' zine, email or post me one with a contact. The 1st issue is trickling around local gigs, with a reprint next week, and the 2nd, hopefully bigger & more diverse issue has a deadline of march 1st, so that's also a deadline for ads. (free of course.)

ahh, teesside seems to have such a lovely paper culture going on right now.

I'd like to come down for a visit some time in January, as in come down for a gig or an event - maybe gbay at the georgian theatre?

So any recommendations for a likely event to pick up zines & leave some behind?

Bonjour! The people who make that did their foray into the world of zine making at Peg Powler Presents Zine this summer, one of several title s that got a kick start from that project, others including Exorbitant Raffle (illustrated account of a trip to Robin Hood's Bay Folk club), I'm Afraid of Everyone ('edgy' fiction), Standard Class (poems by Sonia Parkhabar), Witch Zine (pictures of witches) and maybe best of all Khadim Hussein's Middlesbrough Football Club Poems.

a nice write-up/ad for 'making it look accidental' is in January's 'crack' magazine.

Any of you guys involved?
