Here are some zine reviews I plan to have in my next zine. I may still edit them or change them around a bit, and I still have more zines to review, so let me know what you think of these so far! Need more, less? do they make you want to order the zines, yes or no or what?
Fed Up Mag #11/Free
Another Fed up, whiny zine from the angry Irishman. Alan always says he is fed up, but he keeps on complaining.… Continue

Wooohoo!!!The zine workshop today was great!
No that's an understatement, it was.......SUPER! We were seven strong, mostly friends/acquaintances who frequent the cafe we were at. I was a little nervous despite knowing everyone....okay so i was really nervous. I gave a brief talk on the history of the zine, asked a question or two around the table, then we got sticky! After browsing some zines in my collection to get everyone acquainted with the numerous… Continue

Hullo, We Make Zines.
In the mid 90s a few pals and I ran a zine from where we lived in the Scottish Borders, named Sun Zoom Spark
(after a Captain Beefheart song). We ended up getting it distributed throughout the uk. It was full of absurdist humour, trashy artwork and photography, bizarre stories, stuff about female sexuality + interviews with old time punkers like The Ramones & Jonathan Richman, the up 'n' coming Brit… Continue

Explore the dark side with Absent Cause
Underground cultures, hidden histories, feminist and queer sexualities, chosen families and radical politics; vampirism, the gothic, horror and the macabre; surviving abuse, coping with mental illness/dangerous gifts, self-harm and suicide.
The theme of the third issue of Absent Cause
zine is death, dying, and undeath.
Everybody dies. But in our underground and radical communities we… Continue

I just finished a zine. Its mainly art -drawings and scribbles with comments and musings by me. It's short tales of my experience as a black queer living in the world today. It's A5 and not too long, so good for those with short attention spans.
contact me if you'd like a copy -firstname.lastname@example.org

Portland, Oregon Zine happenings...

Many years ago I recorded my song, “AOL CAN GO AND TANK TOMORROW.
Seems they have. Or rather Time Warner has dumped AOL as announced today. Here’s some info and a link to my song.
As Variety Magazine writes, ”The merger with AOL was announced with great fanfare in early 2000 and closed a year later. It touched off a round of giant media mergers as other companies feared being left behind in a volatile media landscape. Time Warner changed its name to AOL Time… Continue

So, I was pleasantly surprise when I went to my local library-- Multnomah county's Hollywood
branch-- and found that they have started a zine exchange! Now, not only do they carry zines in many branches and offer a bunch of great zine info
online, but they also facilitate zine trades!! They had a box below the zine shelf full of zines for trade on the honor system, like many book-borrowing… Continue

Due to a death in my family and starting classes, I've had to delay the normal functions of GENEROUS. The Spring/Summer issue is going to have some empahsis on health but since this is the first time I'm going with a theme, other topics are gladly welcomed!
If you haven't read my previous posts, here's a briefing.
GENEROUS is a women-themed 'zine with a humorous yet informative edge. We poke fun at pop culture instead of being a victim of here-today, gone-tomorrow… Continue

It is finished. I spent the entire weekend putting it together. Damn I feel like I accomplished something for a change. I'm already starting another issue... the writing part anyway. And I'm working on an 8 page mini that will be nothing but doodling. I may send it along with other stuff as an extra.

I named the new zine Hazel Harper. I'll be putting it together this weekend.
That's all I have to say about that.
