heroin in zines

you know,heroin is really attractive(secretly)to alot of young hipsta zine skank freaks you see working the corners at zine conventions.its sad to see heroin chic drift into every aspect of every counterculture.the beourgious thing to do would be to completely ignore the problem,and pretend it doesnt exist,just like we were conditioned to do from birth.honestly though,i think alot more people use heroin than anybody likes to admit.if you figure in other opiates like oxy's and vicodin,you really… Continue

Being Editors #1- Diana Wynne Jones

So I've got the first issue of my children's literature zine done. The first issue is devoted to Diana Wynne Jones. There was a lot more I wanted to say on the topic, but it just kept growing and growing, so I cut it short at 60 pages, and I'll probably do another DWJ zine in the winter. (The next issue of this zine is about Oliver Postgate). Thank you to the contributors.

Printed with environmentally friendly purple soy ink on recycled cream paper. 60 pages measuring roughly…

Hi/Sorry

Hi everyone.



My name is Cass.



Last year I created an account on WMZ. My name then was Race and I connected with some awesome people. I hoped to create a zine or two of my own to swap and trade.



This didn't go according to plan because of personal issues (and I don't remember the email address I signed up with). I apolgise for not responding to comments/questions etc and for not producing anything for trades.



Soon I get a two month break and I hope to… Continue
