We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

An hour or so again I sent Fate magazine a (belated) e-mail in response to their Sept.-Oct. 2010 issue.  It was at fate@fatemag.com.  About 15 minutes ago I got a "Maeler-Daemon" failure notice saying they couldn't deliver it.  I've got the magazine right in front of me and I can't see a single letter out of place.


So I went to their website, www.fatemag.com, to see if they had a more up-to-date e-mail address.  Usually, right on the home page, fairly easy to find, there's a a "contact us" button.  I looked up and down and around and around.  None there.  I clicked on successive buttons,and scoured the whole stupid site.  Absolutely not "contact us" or e-mail address.


So, I printed out the e-mail and the failure notice with a brief note explaining all this, put it in an envelope---fortunately they do have a physical address, though I hope that isn't dead too---and  will mail it, hoping for the best.


When the last POB is closed out, and even the antiquated soon-to-be luddite  e-mail address is finally abandoned by the e-lite, how in the hell I'm I going to communicate with anybody?  Facebook, Twitter, you say?  Oh my God.  Please. Help me.

Thanks!  I realize these things are sometimes staring me in the face, or buried in there somewhere, but I usually find them a lot more easily.  I suppose I could have sent my LTE (letter to the editor) in the text box they provide, but I've found these often have pretty severe word-number limits.  Even if this "type in this box" method may be more convenient, it's also less flexible and more controlling than "good old-fashioned" e-mail.

PS I was being facetious about "Facebooking."

The last paragraph was a good laugh. I've got to Facebook this!


This is the closest thing to electronic contact with Fate that I could find:



I hope that helps.

You were right, though, there is no email address, or easy way to contact them on the website. Not even in the directory!
