a place for zinesters - writers and readers
I have always been enthusiastic about fanzines. My main interest is Turkish computer fanzines and magazines for which I created the website sadecebirmuze.com.
I tried to publish a motorsports fanzine called Motorspor in 2001 which turned out to be an unsuccesful attempt. I wrote some articles, I even designed some pages but couldn't complete the whole thing by myself.
The first fanzine that I worked in was C64 Türkiye (2002-2004). I was both a writer and page designer. It was an e-fanzine that was being published from the web. Not exactly the same thing when compared with the real ones but still...
Then in 2006, we created a sci-fi fanzine called Bilimkurgu Dergisi. We managed to publish three issues before closing down in 2007. Again I dealt with the page designing as well as writing from time to time. I even made an interview with Giovanni Scognamillo.
In 2011, a new fanzine was born: Retrojen, as it's called, is on retro computing. I write something in each issue, but at the same time I still feel enthusiastic about page designing (I don't know why). I think I'll do it again sometime.
Zinesters, I'd like to read, swap and review any creative fanzine no matter what they are about. So feel free to contact me and send your fanzines.
