a place for zinesters - writers and readers
For this second issue of this here ‘Space Age’ culture zine, we take more than a toe dip into the 1980 movie musical, Xanadu starting Olivia Newton-John & Gene Kelly. The movie might have originally died in the box office, but its legacy still lives on with fans….like yours truly.
How this film has survived and how it fits into all this is examined with some of the various Xanadu related articles I’ve written for web sites, zines and other formats over the years; highlights from…

My new zine is available for pre-order now!
This is the first issue of SMOO in eighteen months. The zine tells the story of a year, from September to September. A weird year; bird-watching on Theodore Roosevelt Island, contemplating; sadness; drinking; summer and new starts; Brooklyn underpasses. Drawn quickly, but with heart, in a week, here in Bristol. I’m really proud of this one.
These should be posted in late Feb.

I used to go to Austria quite a lot to run workshops in schools, travelling from school to school each week. I started writing this zine after my first trip to Vienna in 2010, didn't finish it, and then finished it off a couple of years later. I made a few copies at the time, but then mislaid the pages again when moving house, so barely anyone has read it. I recently found them again,…Continue

This issue of TW goes a “zine retro” by taking a step back to 5 ½ to 8 ½ digest size. Smaller size but more pages, 18 big small ones!
This time, two damned Vegas trips are chronicled, proof of Vegas culture is examined as I attended a comic/book fest with an appearance of F. Andrew Taylor and son, see a show by Olivia Newton-John and a rare appearance by Shumuck-O Rat!
As mentioned before, this issue is digest size, 16 B&W pages and comes with a $2 dollar price…Continue

SPACE AGE ASH TRAY #1
The easiest way to describe this zine is that it’s similar to VH1’s old I Love The 70’s/80’s/90’s/etc., only without the smarminess amidst the cultural deconstruction and this covers the 60’s and 70’s…..and I’m not a celebrity. This is just a collection of notes and artwork covering the era I grew up in but too young to remember.
This first issue covers by background and why I’m rehashing it, a photo essay on apartment signage and ‘tiki’ in my hometown…

We are collecting donations for the ALA Annual Conference Zine Pavilion in June, in San Francisco. In the past, we've had a backstock of zines from weeded collections/ donations, etc. This year, except with a little stipend from ALA, we are struggling to gather zines for the exhibit and then raffle donation. So essentially, we would like to have zines! Zines collected…
