I work on two printed projects Slingshot & 510BADSMUT. I used to make a zine called ABSOLUtELY ZIPPO. Sometimes i write or contribute content to random publications (Maximum Rock n' Roll, Social Meltdown, Radix, Dreams of Donuts, Gutter Soup, Hell Times, Boy Does High School Ever Suck, Big Duck Zine, Teen Punks In Heat, Tales Of Blarg, Hex...perhaps YOUR ZINE!!!) I also help curate a massive zine library at home and at the Long Haul Info Shop. If you want your zine on the shelf of places in the Bay Area like Long Haul, Book Zoo, Thrillhouse Records or want suggestions for other rad spaces contact me

just ask for details
I can't see why zine people (many that I encounter in this site) can only be contacted through closed sites like face###K(etc) ...its as if they want a limited audience who are giving into the police/corporate state or something. I can imagine people don't want to publicize their home address, but really, they are missing out by not exchanging letters. Getting mail from people you don't know ain't all bad.
