a place for zinesters - writers and readers
FREEZERBURN, one of two or maybe three printzines left in St. Louis, is nearly sold out of its 15th issue. It won't be reprinted, as the covers were nicely custom-silkscreened and plus, crucially, I cannot afford a 2nd run of 'em. Better to move on to the next issue.
THIS WEEK, the fifth and final HALLOWE'EN SPECIAL will come out. What izzat, you ask? Every year I make a goofy monster/gore/"Crypt"-style zine for the notoriously debauched All Hallow's Eve parties happening in south city. On pumpkin-colored stock, natch. This will also be the last because drawing vampires takes up too much time---plus, the 31st is leaning more towards Twilight and Scott Pilgrim-chic than ever before. Even amongst da punx!
THE SIXTEENTH issue of F/B will be out either Dec. '10 or Jan. '11, unless I'm delayed by a gallery show or some other wacky "fine art" (heh heh) project.
ONLY ONE issue of F/B costs more than $2.50, and most back issues cost as low as a dollar. AND most are somewhat in print, or available if they're still in a box in my closet.
NOT ONLY THAT, I have a new address, and still am fine with snail-mail pay or trade. If it's trade, let's try and keep it fair---I'll be prone to send extra goodies if so. Issues to prisoners are free, and if it's a review zine with decent circulation, the same applies.
THERE ARE ALSO limited prints, posters, CDs and mounted/wrapped collages for sale, although that ain't exactly "zine" territory.
NOW. IF interested in a zine which contains: 1. art-damage; 2. serpentine monsters with Freudian phalluses and Jungian mandalas; 3. explicit satire, with "explicit" being broadly applicable, so this ain't meant for the kiddies (unless you're like me and prefer kids TO be exposed to the stuff); 4. swastikas as peppy cartoon characters; 5. Burroughsian cut-ups by way of Lovecraft and Sotos; 6. beloved Dayglo-Haired New-Wave girls; 7. tit jokes; and 8. middle fingers followed by intellectual discourse, with the former at least twice more prominent, then FREEZERBURN might be a keen companion to yer morning breakfast-cereal.
