With the hyperbolic zeal and rancor of a true bookseller, Aaron Cometbus brings to life his chosen family: the booksellers of New York City. A Bestiary of Booksellers is for anyone who has sold books long enough to have it seep into their identity, but it’s also for all manner of boo..

True to the zinester "When I'm Damn Good and Ready" publishing schedule, Gen Xers and lifelong friends Liz Mason (me) and Julie Halpern have published a new issue of Cul-de-sac 20 years after the last issue. This time around we're lookin..
In this issue of Cul-de-sac, childhood friends Liz Mason and Julie Halpern focus on "past lives." By that we mean businesses that have closed, experiences we have relegated to memory, media we have put behind us (sort of. Do you ever really put it behind you?). I'm tempted to say it..

Perhaps you'll find this food-themed issue of the zine I do with Julie Halpern appetizing? (Insert groan here.) We talk food this issue: delights, habits, psychological fixations and peripherals -- if by peripherals you mean the time I ate all the Girl Scout Cookies I was sup..
Adam Gnade's The Do-It-Yourself Guide to Fighting the Big Motherfuckin' Sad is a self-described "anti-depression guide/guide to a freer, more lawless life." Gnade's book looks at the root causes of sadness, anxiety, and general malaise/boredom and offers helpful point-by-p..

In this issue of Doris, Cindy writes about hope and people's desire for meaningful work. She writes about her belief that people will change and start living sustainably, even when those around her don't hold the same belief. She writes about the philosophy of social ecology and how it ..
Long running zine by Cindy Crabb writes about sexuality, feminism, raising two miniature horses, Rock and Roll Camp For Girls, and how to lovingly fix a broken cassette tape in a way only she can.- DN
This is a brave issue of Doris! Cindy starts by talking about community, what it is and how it is formed. Cindy writes about her experiences bonding with 'normal' people in a Somatic Experiencing Trauma Resolution Training for Therapists and body workers after years of building mo..
In this new (!) issue of the long-running Doris zine, Cindy writes about her unique relationship with her friend Elliott and the time they spent squatting in an old empty beach house in Cape Cod following the death of a friend. She writes about the freedom she and Elliott had then, to devo..
A great issue of Doris. Thinking about what it means to both have close friends and be part of a community. Gratitude for the life lessons Mom taught. A conversation with imprisoned environmental activist Marius Mason. And the first interview in Cindy Crabb's "Anarchists Over 40&q..
