ETA- Yep, it's true. NING is phasing out free service. Read about it here - http://creators.ning.com/forum/topics/ning-update

Driving Blind #4 - quarter size - 54 pages.
I write about my town, my first (and only) job - and my dad even wrote a story about the habits of Jersey geese. It's very cut-and-paste, and I swear it's more interesting than I make it sound. You can buy it at my distro - everything is alphabetical, so just look under A-F zines.…

There is a Junk Drawer display at the “The Opportunity Shop” in Hyde
Park in Chicago.
The shop is a temporary experimental project space. It is located in a former Hollywood Video store that has been totally redone as a community art center.
The Junk Drawer set-up was created almost entirely out of stuff found at
the space: sets of drawer, and display racks that were previously used
for DVD’s. Zines are for sale, and there’s a drawer full of odds and
ends you can… Continue

in a timely manner, you can get it from one of the following great distros:

Several of my zines were reviewed in Zine World #28. I'm including those reviews in this blog post.
Before I get to the reviews, I want to encourage everyone to read Zine World. It's a great resource for anyone who has even the slightest interest in zines. It's full of letters, articles, ads, a chart of U.S. postal rates, and lots of reviews. A single issue costs $4 postpaid, US; $5… Continue

So, i guess I should use this blog thing, because I have exciting news.
Well... exciting for me.
Last week, I officially finished my first real zine, a perzine called The Universe and You: An Owner's Manual.
Everything is cut, collated, folded, stapled, covers painted... it feels so good. Handed out the first few copies already. Plan on handing more out this weekend at the NJ Zine Fest, trades and whatnot!

I added two new zines to the catalog today:
- A Million Birthdays #9
This is another great, text-heavy zine by K, broken up into vignettes. K writes: “I have been writing down my stories – critical or not – for over seven years now and I don't really know why. It's like there's something that lives inside of me and tells me, over and over, if you are going to keep living, you have to keep writing. And so, whether or not anyone else is…
