Library Planet - my sci-fi novel just got another 5 of 5 star review - see what you think.

Dear Readers, here is my latest review for the sci-fi novel Library Planet.


Every so often, I run across a literary work that makes me want to read great sections of it aloud in order to savor more fully the marvelous and magical blend of language and meaning that merges into a living and synergistic spark.


Library Planet is a literary science fiction novella written by Tom Hendricks. Street and Smith is a solitary man who finds great pleasure in… Continue

IZM - Day 28 and 29: Resuming month and catching up

So my dog is finally doing much better, thanks the Goddess, which means that I can get on with my IZM!


The activities I missed out on are:

1) Submit something to a compilation zine: I'll have to ask/look around for such.

2) Cook with a recipe from a zine: I think I recall seeing a cool vegan recipe in one Amber's Fight Boredom zines.

3) Post photo of me with my zine: That's today's activity. I should have no problem doing that!

I should haul ass…

More and more I've to admit that writing zines appears to be a lifetime’s job! Until today I’ve published three perzines: ‘Veill’ (July 2014), ‘Fixing A Hole’ (July 2015) and ‘Full Size Render’ (August 2015). These three zines show, with each issue, an without doubt increasing amount of honesty and individuality. I’m absolutely delighted with each of them but I still feel not fully satisfied, even the contents of these three perzines apparently don’t add up to what I want to say... I’m…

IZM - Day 27: Another zine event

This time it really wasn't so much a zine event as it was a meeting with a friend at my house for a night of art and stuff.

But I did get a chance to work on my zine. I also changed my typewriter ink ribbon and the script looks so much clearer now!

Sadly, my dog was coming down with a coughing virus which made her throw up a bunch of phlegm all night. At least that's what the vet said this morning when we took my dog there after freaking out the entire night. I didn't sleep a…

IZM - Day 26: Work on zine stuff

I got some stuff done yesterday mostly related to snail mail. I wrote a letter to my penpal, made a package of zines for trade and packed another box of zines to be sent to Boston for the zine fest.

So not much zine production but I got some stuff done anyway. That's besides the fact that I got my flight tickets to Boston!!!!! Haha!

Anyway, today, Day 27, I'm having a friend over for an art night, so I hope to get a move on with my zine.

More on that later on :-)

IZM - Day 25: Learn a new zine skill

I haven't found one yet. I mean, I know how to make a perzine, cut and paste, a fanzine, a compilation zine, a zine designed by hand and on computer, a mini zine complete with the folds and whatnot, a post-its zine, a photobook...

About a week ago, I had the idea of making a "silent" zine, that is a zine that is made up of photos, drawings, collages and comics, and that has almost no words at all.

I think this is the zine "skill" I'm gonna teach myself. I don't know if it's…

IZM - Day 23 and 24: Mini zine on Zine Event

I had to make a one page zine on July 23, which I assume is a mini zine. so I decided to take that opportunity to make my own "mini zine" which I actually call a post-its zine because it's made out of a small stack of post-it notes. This zine is my End of Words zine about nonsense and it's the third issue of it, some of which is written in aweful broken German. I was planning on doing it on the 23, but that day was spent on a longass bus ride from Jerusalem to Be'er Sheva…

You can find the zine in my Etsy shop.…

This local weekly is such an insult to every zine in Dallas

The weekly, that I refuse to name, has never supported zines. Now it runs a story wondering where are all the zines - what nerve when they have done everything to block my zine and other local zinesters for 24 years!

zine 3 still in production

sorry zine issue 3 is taking a while.  It's longer than normal and I am mainly working on it when I feel inspired.  The last article is challenging and sometimes I feel it is not very cohesive and/or I'm grabbing at straws.  It will eventually be out.  It's not too far from being done.  I am just trying to get it exactly the way I want it, along with providing accurate research and documentation.

IZM - Day 22: Guitar playing (whoops!)

Since I skipped "visiting your local zine library" day (since there are none in Jerusalem) and found myself with a free day, I decided that I should work on the split zine I'm doing with my Boston friend.

But then, this morning, after reading a piece I wrote a while back about writing and composing songs, I felt a bout of inspiration and decided to pick up my guitar and play for the first time since I broke my elbow (two years ago)! I loved it so much and realized just how much I've…

IZM - Day 21: Zine Library Day

I went to the post office today and mailed out a bunch of awesome stuff to awesome people. I was also planning on mailing out some of my zines to the Barnard Zine Library in honor of today's activity, but didn't do it at the end and here's why:

Last night, I chatted with Jenna Freedman who runs said library and asked her if she would be interested in cataloging some of my recent zines. When I told her I can send it to her, she said that I can also give it to her in person during the…
