a place for zinesters - writers and readers
Started Dec 12, 2012
Name: James N. Dawson
Address: P.O. Box 950, Spokane, WA 99210
Age: Well past youth.
Affliction: POB mail junkie.
Religion: Theravada Buddhist. More traditional/literal than most western Theravadins. Follow and regard Buddhism AS A RELIGION. Many would find me "dogmatic" or "doctrinaire", but I'm not overbearing or preachy about it. More negligent lately in my Dhamma practices than I should be. Needn't discuss religion. Just "laying it on the table". Write infrequent and irregular publication: DHAMMA LETTERS "Letters, Fragments, Essays. Critically Orthodox, Theravada Buddhist Perspective".
Politics: Animal-Rights Libertarianism. See:
ZINES---Self-Publishing/Networking/DIY/Simple Printing/Zines---Mimeograph, Ditto, Letter Press, Home Xerox,
Pre or Non-Internet/PC Entertainment Technology---radios, tape recorders, analogue TV, Stand-Alone Digital, Etc.
Philosophy---Critical Thinking, Ethics, Politics, Religion, Ideas and Consequences, Theory and Action, Individualism...
Mysteries/Unexplained---Cryptozoology (Sasquatch, Pteradactyl, Thunderbird....), Misc
Music---Alternative Rock, New Wave, Garage, Synth, Post Punk, Goth....
Movies & Pulp Fiction----mostly "intelligent horror", cult, silents, obscure, B....
Documentaries---mostly 60's through 80's
Warning: I often "recycle" my e-mails and letters to supplement my mailings. Let me know how you feel about this, and we'll take it from there. I may use letters I receive in my zines---TELL ME CLEARLY "DO NOT PRINT" if you don't want me to.
E-Mail Me If You Must, But Why Not Just Send Me Paper Mail at my POB! Zines, Movies, Mix Tapes, Etc. Also Welcome! Will Answer All!
MY TRADE POLICY: No need to arrange trades via e-mail. Just send me your zine via the USPS and I'll reciprocate! When my zine reaches you, it's yours to do with what you like, but I'd be grateful if you didn't destroy or "recycle" it with the newspapers---I bled an ocean and cried a river of tears creating my zines, and paid a pretty penny to print them. Please, pass it on to somebody who'd enjoy them, if you can. I try to "read the situation" and treat zines I get according to how their makers would like, but if you have any "do's, don't or druthers" about how you'd like your zine "disposed of" or "passed on" it'd be best to make these clear. THANKS!
I do street feedings once a week and have a literature box with material from many different philosophies. I'm having a hard time scraping up things for it. I do this under The Vegan Libertarian Benevolent Society:
I would be interested in any zines anybody here would be able to send me. Zines by…Continue

I ordered a Scream Factory ages ago (or maybe got it gratis, for review), the 1995/96 issue. At first I wasn't impressed when I read it, but it sort of grew on me, and I now think it was pretty exceptional.
I'd like to get and/or at least borrow the whole collection, but I don't want it bad enough to pay the $15 a copy it's going for on eBay.
Does anybody on WMZ have the whole collection? Does anybody know if a zine library does? Would anybody be willing to do a trade. …Continue
As some of you know, I'm sort of involved in the prisoner zine scene(not exactly sure how that developed, but that's another issue...) and I'd like to order a few zines for a prisoner pen pal I've had for many years.
So as the title above indicates I'm looking for dark, paranormal, unsolved mysteries, strange, hard/punk rock, poetry zines with lots of imagery. Probably not politics or technical at least as the main content. I'd recommend something dense, that can last a prisoner a…Continue
