a place for zinesters - writers and readers
Once upon a time, a young hare was horrified to discover the Little Fir Tree he had befriended (/taunted) in his leverethood had mysteriously disappeared, never to be seen again. He soon learned this was an annual occurrence and leaked his story to the Enchanted Times in the hope that some negative publicity might help prevent the wholesale abduction of trees recurring year upon year...
(In Hans Andersen's original fairytale, 'The Little Fir Tree', a vain little tree is desperate to escape his roots in the forest and thinks everything is looking up when he is chopped down then decorated for Christmas. Of course, when he is later discarded in an attic then chopped up for firewood, it's too late to realise the error of his ways.. A very sad seasonal tale!)
Does it need to be more than one page to count as a zine? The story is on the front cover, but the inside is blank for your own message. It continues my series of Enchanted Times fairytale newspapers...
