We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

Striking Distance is a punk rock fanzine that contains four new stories plus, as always, excerpts of letters from your favourite anonymous zinesters and other urban neurotic punks. This little zine is $2PPD / trade / a buck in person. I will be tabling at the 10th Annual Portland Zine in Portland, Oregon (Aug 28-29) and at Canzine in Toronto on Oct 24th.


I won’t be submitting consideration copies to distros but if any are interested feel free to get in touch! They are $1 per zine wholesale or 20 for $10!

Here’s a review of my last zine from Razorcake:

Comparatively speaking, I’ve read far fewer Canadian zines than American ones, and yet the Canadian ones I’ve read have all been good (I’m thinking in particular of Ghost Pine and I’m Johnny and I Don’t Give a Fuck). And it’s not only that they’ve been good, but also that they’ve been good in a similar way. There’s a timeless quality to the writing. They also all seem to hold to a higher literary standard than many of their American counterparts; the storytelling is well-crafted and the text has obviously been proofread (they often even thank their proofreaders in the intro!). In my opinion, this sort of dedication is sorely lacking in general in the zine world, but, then again, I may just be permanently cranky after seeing one too many crappy zines. But to get back to Kissoff, these are personal tales (a few set in Canada and a couple in South Africa) of travel, friendship, romantic relationships, and punk rock. Nothing extraordinary topic-wise, but told in a way that extracts the universal themes likely to appeal to the widest audience. Definitely recommended. –Sean Stewart
