Submit something for Absent Cause #2

I'm thinking about duality as a theme -- things like doppelgangers, mirrors, shadows, doubles, vampires casting no reflection, twins, split or multiple personalities, bipolarism, bisexuality, gender swapping and gender play, immigrants living in a foreign culture without losing their identities, interracial identity, etc. But don't feel bound by this if you want to contribute ... there are no hard and fast rules.



I'm proud to announce some early contributors to the second issue. AC… Continue

Perzines

I describe my regular zine as "a light-hearted food/perzine," but for a while know I have been thinking about writing a regular, straight-up perzine for a while now, but I'm just not sure how I feel about it. I've written lots of little stories and vingettes, and I think they're pretty interesting, but I can't seem to decide whether or not I want to publish them. I've been reading alot of perzines lately really enjoying them but I'm not sure if writing a perzine is really ME. I guess I can… Continue

My zine is Mentally Ill! No, really...

That's the title anyway: Sometimes Things Get Confusing When You're Mentally Ill.



It's a brief comix history of my struggles with depression, PTSD, abuse, marriage and fatherhood, recovery and struggling to reclaim a sense of self. It's cartoony but not light hearted. There is lots of potentially triggering stuff here. Consider yourself warned.



It's yours for a buck, a couple of stamps or a trade. If you would like a copy, you can order it from my etsy store or… Continue

Preorders

Okay, I will be taking preorders for the first issue of Darling Disasters! Each copy will be $1. Unfortunately, right now I do not have a PayPal account as I had to close the one I had down because of moving and that bank not being available here and not having a bank account to link it to just yet.



Anyway.



It's 20 pages, b&w, quarter-sized. Darling Disasters is a per-zine/lit-zine. This issue is basically the "pilot" issue. It's the very first one and it kind of… Continue

Hello everyone!

Hello everyone! I'm Karen. I just turned 30 and I live in St Paul, Minnesota.



I listed all my old zines on my new page, but the one I probably re-printed the most in recent years was A Tenderness So Painful I Thought my Heart Would Burst. Life has changed a whole dang lot since I wrote that a in 2005 so it's not in print any more. My husband and I now have a 6 month old baby boy and I'm really curious about how my life as a "zinester" will evolve now that I have a child and am… Continue

Sandwich, NH now has circulating zines in its library!

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

Funds

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?

Arcade Distro September 2008 Updates



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

New - Zine Broadside

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
