Is this a title field or something?

I have been making my little zine, Fergus, since 2000. It is named after the pet duck I had around then. Fergus (the duck) would quack 24 hours a day and had the best olive-green bill. He is no longer around. Fergus (the zine) is still around, with issues 29 & 30 available at the moment. They're $1 - $2 in the shops/distros, but also if you just ask me for one, I'll send it to you ... I mean, I don't expect I'll be so overwhelmed with requests I'll go broke.

If you want to write or trade, I'm at:

PO Box 1497

East Victoria Park

Fergus replied to Alex Wrekk's discussion Portland Zine Symposium 2013!
"Yes, I'm going (largely thanks to you). I aminterested in different binding, printing (physical construction) things you can do without buying special tools & equipment. You know, without having to go to an art supplies store or something."

Fergus replied to KellyRose-Pulse Zine's discussion leaving your zine in random places?
"Two weeks ago I was interstate and left 3 copies of my zine outside a book store I was walking past (amongst the flyers & street press) and a few days ago I had letter in my PO Box from someone who had picked one of them up. Quite thrilling."

Fergus commented on Tee Rex's group Australian travelling zine box
"Wait, um, how long is reasonable to keep the box before sending it on? I am worried it will take me ages to read them 'cause I already have an enormous Zines To Read pile. Oh well I've got holidays coming up I suppose. Also tell me all…"

Fergus replied to TimT's discussion A discussion thread about ducks
