Brainscan #29 and No More Coffee #4

Released at the 2012 Chicago Zine Fest

A split zine with Brainscan #29 and no More Coffee #4

Brainscan #29 - Ben Spies (no more coffee zine) threw out the challenge of fiction to my land of perzines and this is the grim result. These three short stories are my stab at fiction wrapped in the usual high contrast cut and paste layout you would expect in and issue of Brainscan. One story is about leaving a hometown for greener pastures only to make a stop half way there to visit an old friend and includes thoughts and reflections about the past. The second story is about a weird housemate and his strange perception of the world through Woody Allen tinted glasses and odd notions about art. The third story is about weighing the value of our short lives against the rock wall embankment of a cemetery. I admit that the voice is similar to mine and the subject matter doesn't stray too far from what you would expect to find in an issue of Brainscan, but it was a really fun experiment and I'm glad that Ben talked me into doing this split.

No More Coffee is a zine of fiction for people who stay up too late. Stories like these are how I get the black bile out of my system, so to speak. Alex and I agreed to do a fiction split not knowing how morose it would end up, but we're on similar wavelengths, I guess. I'm still writing fiction because I love it and because I'm too scared to write about my own life, but even if these stories never happened, the people in them did. "Photographs of the Dead" is about what the residents of a suburban apartment complex doesn't know about their neighbors. "Exit 121" is about an impetuous woman living at a truck stop. The untitled story is about Sunday breakfast at a diner.
