Another year, another batch of zine work in this small town I call a vacation spot.
There are now 60 zines in the Samuel H. Wentworth Public Library in Sandwich, NH, and you can check them out just like a book!
I'm proud to put them on the cutting edge, but worried that the zines won't be taken seriously (they haven't been so far, even by the librarians, grrr). I posted to the town email list with a big rah-rah description and will hope for the best.
Next summer… Continue

I'm unemployed at the moment and right now my only hope of getting any money is an interview I have on Thursday that may or may not turn into a job. So, what are other ways in which I can come up with money to copy my zine and get it sent out to people?

I stayed up all night on Friday totally re- doing the Arcade Distro website. After watching orders slow down all summer, and then getting a grand total of one order last month, I figured I ought to try out a new look and add some new content to the website and see if that helps get the distro back on track. If you've been thinking about ordering some zines from Arcade Distro and just haven't gotten around to it, now would be a good time to go… Continue

Hello. I just added to my shop
some zine broadsides. Broadsides
were something that were especially popular in the 60's and early 70's. They combined poetry and art by presenting the poem as a piece of art, something you would hang on the wall, often they were illustrated and some were poster size.
I was copying one of my zines a while ago and thought how sad it was that… Continue
