Hi All! I just joined the We Make Zines board yesterday, and I have been reading and trying to find an appropriate way to make a post about my new zine... so I am writing this blog!
I used to be very involved in the zine community, and I wrote zines like "rock star with words", "the remainder of zero" and "there is still a chance for us". And in the late 90s I also made a lot of zines that I won't mention :) Anyways, it's been a few years since I've made a zine I've really put out… Continue

There have been a few submissions for covers to #8's ButtRagMag and I just wanted to post to see if anyone has any feedback about this.

Then Hugo who did Churn comics and draws such great big butts! I have grabbed and put in zines with his permission. Now he has drawn a cover especially for ButtRagMag! While I have already… Continue

It's been a long while since the distro is opened. Lots of factors play into that but it's open now and I'm having a sale for it.
By the way, if the layout is kind of a hassle to navigate let me know so I can make it much more accessible. Thank you!
Sale has been long over!

Inspired by an old photographic project of mine (read about it here
) I put together a mini zine about eight individuals sharing a single moment in time - 12.11pm to be exact. Its printed on a single sheet of A4 which is then folded up to fit in the palm of your hand. It also opens up to reveal a puzzle regarding the eighth individual. I plan to place a couple in time related library books during one of my visits… Continue

Someone saw my recently-added page here and said, "Nick, I can't believe you're still doing this stuff." I took it as a compliment. I did my first fanzine in 1980 (I was 12 at the time), then had a ten-year run from 81-91 with a SINGLE title, took some time to get married and have kids, then did another print zine from 03-08 before going the way of the dreaded e-zine (although I must admit it's much easier, cheaper, and faster to do).
BUT---I'll always have the itch to do an… Continue

i had one big change in my life happening and it disrupted the whole balance of things. not that the balance was doing very well before that happened but i still had some hope. right now, that little hope is almost gone, and it's hard to find the strength to keep doing the things i liked doing...
this is all a long story, my intention isn't to flood the community with another useless and pointless (since it's got nothing to do with the theme of Zines). i just want to let some people… Continue
