About

JawsForJesus Guerrilla Publishing Haus, Inc. began as a way for a very bored office intern to retain his artistic dignity in the face of 9-5 office drudgery.  It was guerrilla publishing in the truest sense of the words; print runs conducted only after everyone had gone to lunch, stolen paper/toner/staples/etc., to say nothing of some extremely liberal use of the Alt + F4 function.  Nowadays, JFJGPHInc. is based out of Portland, Oregon, and no longer relies on stolen office supplies for its survival, instead operating under the benevolent auspices of the Independent Publishing Resource Center.

Current publications include:

The Rhode Island School for the Feeble-Minded: this 8-volume series forms the bulk of what was produced during those early days of interoffice daring and deceit.  It takes its name from the institution which housed and educated developmentally-disabled youth in the smallest state during the early twentieth century.  The series is "dormant" if not necessarily "concluded".

#1: Language Arts

#2: Art

#3: Psychology

#4: Biology

#5: Astronomy

#6: Philosophy

#7: Religion & Theology

#8: Winter Break Activity Booklet

Puberty Urges: JFJGPHInc.'s foray into educational pamphleteering, containing vital information for those about to face the onslaught of the Sex Hormones. Now available online!

Stop Gentrification: a visual history of the great showdown between the Moon Slugs and some white people. Now available online!

A Monopoly on the Legitimate Use of Force: what began as a Skype conversation ended up as a potent reminder that war just straight-up sucks no matter how drunk you are.  Now available online!

E-ZINES:

Bradley Logan: interns are people too.  This special "one-off" is the Twitter account for an intern working for the Resource Development Administration during the events of James Cameron's film Avatar.  Apparently they're filming Avatar 2; maybe we haven't heard the last from Bradley Logan.

Space Bigots: the adventures of the Westboro Baptist Church in space.  Trigger warning for homophobic language, which the Author personally detests but used only for the sake of verisimilitude (for what it is worth, the offenders get pretty much exactly what they have coming to them).  There is the possibility that this will be released soon in a print version, if the Author can get his shit together.

WORKS BY OTHERS: when JFJGPHInc. was started, it was a vehicle for one man to put into print his hopes/dreams/fears/recurring delusions of grandeur.  With that in mind, JFJGPHInc. is proud and also kind of flabbergasted to have published the works of others.  Those publications include:

Drift:PVD by Invisible Cities: JFJGPHInc. owes a great deal of personal and - professional? - gratitude to the city and denizens of Providence, RI.  If you ever find yourself wandering its brick-lined streets and thinking, "I wish I had a map of this city that wasn't so damned accurate", then do we have just the psychogeographical Situationist text for you!  Use this handy map of Florence, Italy (Providence's sister city) to navigate your way around the Creative Capital; the idea being to let the benevolent gods of whimsy, luck, and creative imagination guide your way as opposed to the capitalistic machinations of efficiency, expediency, and practicality.  Go have an experience and write about it at driftprovidence.wordpress.com.

Chapbooks by Donald Food: Philadelphian poet Donald Food is probably the most talented writer JFJGPHInc. has ever published, and this is coming from the guy who started the damn thing in the first place.  Whether or not you're a person who likes to read poetry, you owe it to yourself to read everything he's ever written.  You can start with either of the two chapbooks we've had the honor of publishing:

Figure Without Hammer: "twenty page zine featuring two poems in twelve parts. One is about boxing and one is about interrogation. Both are about metaphysics, mostly. Both are about formal axiomatic systems, sort of."

Deer Lay Traps: "thirty two page poetry zine starring some quote by Udo Kier. It features short poems about ghosts, the Vienna Circle, natural disasters, what your grandparents listened to while fucking, and so on. It also features one long poem about Hegel and birds and one slightly less long poem about Gaius Valerius Catullus, semi-professional blogger."

All 'zines are available for the price of printing/postage or a trade, except the e-zines, which are free because you are beautiful and you deserve them.

yay there is definitely a zine stream happening this Sat 3-6! Hope to see you again!

hey, I just wanted to let you know tomorrow's zine stream will be cancelled because I have to work :( I don't have a better contact method for you at the time, but I hope you get this in time! I would like an email address or actually a facebook would be ideal if you have it so I can remind you or get in touch with you if the events get cancelled at any point. Thanks for all  your support!

awesome. Well the next zine stream is from 3-6 on Saturday Oct. 8. There is a business meeting for the library today (wednesday sept. 28 at 6). I made some fliers of how people can help/the events we offer and when they occur/who we are, so when you come next you should grab one so you can be in the loop.

Hi, I'd love to trade you for Antique Evaluations.  I have a mental health zine called functionally ill and could send you descriptions of all 10 issues.  I have other zines too, like a perzine-with-poems that's on issue 51.  Thanks and hope to hear from you.

I just catalogued a bunch of your zines that were donated to the library--I read through them, they're great!

hi I just logged in since forever ago. I dunno if I ever responded to your earlier comment. There is a new place in Providence called Amigos Publishing (i think?) you may want to check it out
