I just started a new zine called Bookstore Thief
, after being out of the zine world for about 15 years. Back in the day I used to write a zine called Every Girl's Dream
. Anyhoo, this one is mostly bookstore adventures, as in working in them. One day I got robbed at gunpoint. And that is how this zine came into being. You can buy a copy at my etsy shop
, or I might be willing to trade for your zine. I like… Continue

Hey! I finally got around to making more copies of Diatribe Issue Five and finished Diatribe Issue Six!
Issue five (25 copies were released in 2006) covers such fantastic topics as my conflicting views on religion (and the value voters folks), drunk dialing, the short list of things that really ire up my blood (nationalists, "manly" men, and and rockabilly to name a few) along with some contributions from my good friend Will (a history… Continue

Here are a couple of panels from my new comic The Cloud Map. This is story number 3 and I'm working on number 4 today. I see this story, when collected, as a 100-150 page story that is loosely about Harry's attempts to map the furthest clouds. I see it as sort of meandering though. Like a cloud.
Come see more at my blog at… Continue

Hey guys. I just recently finish not one, but two comics. My 24 hour comic, Fail Monster and the fifth issue of my comic journal, Dinosaur vs. Robot.
Obviously, you can buy or trade for them anytime. Just send me a message.

Listen. Can I share something with you all? Can I tell you something for real? I really love fires man! Not in a weirdo pyromaniac kind of way you understand, but in a simple hanging out around a fire pit kind of way. I love the sound burning wood makes. The crackle and popping and gentle rhythmic sway of the airwaves. I love the colours that dance and flicker and lick the air. I love the warmth it spreads. Not only externally but internally as well.
I have had a fire pit in my… Continue

Let's see, what's up in my zine world this week... i taught a workshop at the IPRC about selling zines and things on Etsy and I also educated everyone on the Joy's of We Make Zines. it was fun! I volunteered at Wordstock
on Saturday but I didn't make it to the IPRC Text Ball because my old housemate Abeni showed up with her baby so we hung out and ate candy instead.
Sunday was my shift at the IPRC. Sunday is usually pretty dead but the… Continue

Witnessing 9/11 from Overseas
by Kristoffer Mininger
After lunch we had an hour of free time before getting back to our farm duties. On this particular day James and I had gone down to the dried-up lake bed to check the sheep for maggots. It seems odd now that this was something we did in our free time.
After the break, James ran into town to borrow some carpentry tools. I went down to “the slats” to check on a sick cow. I was tossing fresh straw around the… Continue

Here at Fallyrag we're putting together plans for our Winter Solstice edition (22/12/08) and are looking to review a zine that fits this mold. We'd like to feature a zine that includes either story-telling, the stars (and the solar system), or has a spiritual, esoterical thread.
No fat red santa clauses / father christmases / or Coca-Cola related works!
Look forward to hearing from you.
Kind regards, Jon

After an inspiring weekend at Ladyfest Manchester and a very seriously dented distro stock I have decided it is time for new zines, lots of them.
marching stars distro (www.marchingstars.co.uk) is a 16 month old UK based distro which has hopefully now proved it has staying power in these unstable distro times.
Zines that I choose to stock I am 110% behind and I so take seriously my role of helping to get zines out there in the world to the right people. Oh, and I freaking… Continue
