The Very Big Word Plan? – Annie Murray

A zine with funny and quirky short stories.

Empire City

It has been a couple of years since I lived in NYC and I always wanted to write about my time there, but never could get started. Some other project would come up and it would get pushed back. Recently I returned to the city for a visit and now live nearby and the memories came flooding back. Finally I just sat down and wrote the first sentence. Like a lot of things in life, all you have to do is start and the rest unfolds…. – Van

I Remember You – Bryan Riek

A personal zine by Bryan Riek about his time living with Mike Croft, of the zine OJ Killed Elvis. Mike was a great person and wild at times but had a big place in his heart for his friends. Bryan recounts his these times, good and bad. This zine is a personal look at a friendship from start to finish.

Our Lives! (Summer Stories ’08 Issue #1)  – Alex Loeb

The title doesn’t lie. This is full of fun summer stories. Basically romanticizing a slightly depressing and miserable summer. Travel plans cancelled in attempts to work and pay off financial debts. But instead is spent sitting around all summer and doing small road trips to hang out with friends. Good times. Bad times. It’s our lives. – Alex

Our Lives! (Memories Made In The Coldest Winter Issue #2) – Alex Loeb

This issue is slightly more depressing than the first. He talks about winter, working, being lonely, being cold etc. If you’re looking for another optimistic romanticized Evasion rip off, re-read the first issue until you’re ready for some Al Burian esque type stuff. – Alex

Ship of Fools #3Emilja Frances

Ship of Fools #4 –  Emilja Frances

Black Hole

“Maybe the most depressing zine I’ve ever read. Its about looking at civilization and hating every little thing about it. No copyright. Intellectual property is of no value to me. I am just the person who happened to put these words in this order. The day I copyright something I’ll put a bullet in my head to celebrate.-Taken from the first page, how can you not want to read it?” –
