We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

Someone saw my recently-added page here and said, "Nick, I can't believe you're still doing this stuff." I took it as a compliment. I did my first fanzine in 1980 (I was 12 at the time), then had a ten-year run from 81-91 with a SINGLE title, took some time to get married and have kids, then did another print zine from 03-08 before going the way of the dreaded e-zine (although I must admit it's much easier, cheaper, and faster to do).

BUT---I'll always have the itch to do an old-school, print 'zine. Hence, this spring I'll be releasing (I hope to, anyway) a multi-purpose review zine titled ANTIBACTERIAL POPE. Anyone interested in reviewing any type of strange, bizarre, or basically untypical film, music, book, etc. feel free to contact me.

And you younger zinesters---keep doing what your heart tells you, even when you're almost 42 years old. It keeps you young!

i'm also an old zinester and most of my writing time ends up going towards an e-zinish thing i get paid to publish/write for. but i still like making zines. i just need to get my shit together for a new issue of monstress. it's kinda funny because i got the e-zinish job because of my zine.

I went into it kicking and screaming. But for the project I do, it's fine. I'm really looking forward to getting back into a print zine, though.

I've never done an e-zine, but I think now and then of trying one, even though I barely have the first clue of how to. It may be cheaper, but for me, both learning how and doing one probably wouldn't be easier or faster by a longshot. I've also never read an e-zine, though I think I've made a few efforts to over the years. For some reason I never quite remember the process always seemed to be an uphill battle strewn with roadblocks. (Not complaining or criticizing, just reporting my experiences).
