Sad Libs Found!

I found 50 copies of an old zine I did years ago called Sad Libs. I'm not sure if I'll ever be able to reprint them because I have no access to the machines I once did, so I'm very glad to have found these. It's nice to be able to offer them to anyone that might want to have a copy. sad-libs

Tazewell's Favorite Eccentric #11

I finished copying, collating, and stapling the 11th issue of my zine, Tazewell's Favorite Eccentric last night, only to receive a really sweet, hesitant call from a friend asking if I meant to misspell the name on purpose. I actually did not, but as a result, the first print run will have a very small amount of pink sharpie hand lettering, and can be obtained by sending $3 ppd to my address, or via paypal to piratesarah@gmail.com, or by trading perzines with me.

 

I have never…

Obligatory first post

Hello to anyone reading this...

I am working on a "literary" zine, meaning that in it you will find works of fiction and non-fiction, but not how-to articles, etc. Most of the work will be about the weird, disturbing, or odd-ball.
