NO WAR BUT THE CLASS WAR
$3, 8 ½” x 5 ½”, photocopied, 21 pgs.
By Guest Contributor

Definitely a great insight into anti-militarism of the past, this collection shows how little war and capitalism have changed over the past century.


MAXIMUM ROCK’N’ROLL #348
$4, full size, newsprint, 164 pgs.
By Katie Dunne

As always, MRR contains endlessly entertaining stories and reviews in the columns section.


GROWING THINGS: A GUIDE FOR BEGINNING GARDENERS
$3, ½ letter sized, photocopied, 40 pgs.
By Guest Contributor

This is a genuine effort to put together the one zine anybody should need to get started gardening.


FLUKE #10

By Steve Hart

One of the strengths of Fluke is an engaging interview with a band that I’ve never heard of.


EARTH FIRST!
$6.50, 2011/2012, 8 ½” x 11”, newsprint, 64 pgs.
By Steve Hart

I enjoyed the article, “Wolf Wars.” I had a grindcore band in the early ‘90s called Gitcheegoomee. My bandmates often asked me what I was singing about and I replied, “Wolves.”


DOING IT YOURSELF IN STUMPTOWN
$5, 8 ½” x 5 ½” printed, 44 pgs.
By Steve Hart

I haven’t been to Portland in fourteen years or so, and I find it amazing that there are so many resources for publishing in one smallish big city.


DIURNAL MAMMALS OF THE MOJAVE
$?, 4 ¼” x 6 ¼”, color cardstock cover, photocopied, 17 pgs.
By Todd Taylor

Word on the street is that her spider genitalia renderings are second-to-none.


CATHERINETTE: REIMAGINING SPINSTERHOOD FOR THE 21ST CENTURY: HARLOTS AND HOMEBOD
$?, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, photocopied, 17 pgs.
By Todd Taylor

Get weird. Be safe. Filter your email. Bring back super-elaborate headwear.


BITE THE CACTUS #5 and BITE THE CACTUS GOD EQUALS GENOCIDE RATTLED MINDS TOUR 20
$1 ea., 4 ¼” x 5 ½”, photocopied, 15 pgs.
By Todd Taylor

Adrian’s storytelling is akin to the cacti and succulents she admires. Her drawings are sparse and direct, but bloom under harsh conditions.


BIG HANDS #9
$2, 8 ½” x 5 ½” printed, 72 pgs.
By Steve Hart

With zines like this, where I’ve never met the author, don’t know anything about him, reading their personal musings on a variety of subjects often makes me feel like a voyeur.


BACKWAVES
4” x 4”, copied, 16 pgs.
By Katie Dunne

Alanna reviews a few of Richard Simmons’ Sweatin’ to the Oldies tapes, complete with sections like “Richard’s Outfit,” “Best Lines,” and “Sweat-a-bility.”


AND FROM THEIR HEARTS GROW GARDENS
8 ½” x 5”, copied, 23 pgs.
By Katie Dunne

Basically, it’s a writing prompt for smug, insufferable pun users.


YELLOW RAKE, THE #27
$1.50 U.S., $5 World, 8 ½” x 5 ½”, photocopied, 20 pgs.
By Dave Brainwreck

Long-running literary zine from Denver that, due to a drop-off in contributions, has basically become the editor’s personal zine. It’s pretty decent stuff.


TRAINWRECK #9
$2, 5” x 7”, photocopied, 36 pgs.
By Kurt Morris

Zines are often a form of just getting stuff out there. It’s not edited, work shopped, or checked over by multiple parties to make sure it sounds good. But that means that inherently, with all personal zines, there is going to be some stuff that really packs a punch and other stuff that falls a bit flat.


THEY WILL STAND ON YOU AND SPIT, $1
8 ½” x 5 ½”, photocopied, ? pgs.
By Kurt Morris

This is a split zine between writers Adam Gnade and Bart Schaneman. Gnade contributes excerpts from his novella California and Schaneman writes poetry and they are interspersed throughout.


STAY COOL #1
$3, 8½” x 11”, copied, 80 pgs.
By Keith Rosson

Stay Cool is massive, ambitious, and harkens back, very much so, to the days when fanzines were vehicles for both the political and the personal.


SPARE CHANGE #21
$2/trade, 5½” x 8½”, copied, 36 pgs.
By Keith Rosson

Spare Change is penned by a Chattanooga punk who writes pretty extensively here about his long history and many attempts with quitting smoking.


SHARDS OF GLASS IN YOUR EYE #6
$3, 5½” x 8½”, photocopied, 28 pgs.
By Kurt Morris

This zine is comprised of some humorous bits and other randomness. It’s done in a cut and paste style reminiscent of how I did my zines back in high school and how I really feel like all true zines should be done.


RAILROAD SEMANTICS #1
$7.95, 5 ½” x 7”, paperback, 64 pgs.
By Kat Jetson

Recommended exclusively for tramps


RADVOCATE #4, THE
$2, 8 ½” x 5 ½”, photocopied, 28 pgs.
By Dave Brainwreck

Somebody might like this, and these people are definitely putting serious thought and energy into it­—it’s just that reading short stories about going to parties, especially where the character has extensive dialogue with “petite girl,” is so rarely ever what I wanna read, anywhere.


PUBLIC STREETS, CORPORATE POWER
$?, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, hardstock cover, photocopied on recycled paper, 35 pgs.
By Todd Taylor

The full subtitle sums up this zine’s focus up: How cable companies, phone companies, electrical companies, and their relatives are using our own streets to hold our lives hostage. Inside, is a geeky (said affectionately and self-applied), warm, knowledgeable treatise on the history and application of getting utilities to their destination in America.


PAPAS, THE
5 ½” x 8”, photocopied, 30 pgs.
By Craven

The male hegemony rewards no one, except for, maybe, the wealthy at the top who were born into it and, yet, somehow believe they’re self-made men. It’s a humbling work that attacks the entire system of patriarchy, demanding everyone take account of how they play into it, and encouraging them to resist it.


OVERDOSING IN REPUBLICAN WORLD #1
5 ½” x 8 ½”, 40 pgs., $3
By Matt Average

. This was a pretty interesting read the whole way through, and I did find myself re-reading sections before I had even finished reading through the entire issue once.


MEDIA JUNKY #16
$1, 5½” x 8½”, photocopied, ? pgs.
By Kurt Morris

If you’re interested in learning about more zines and some new music, definitely check Media Junky out.


MAXIMUM ROCKNROLL #346
$4, 8 ½” x 11”, newsprint, 128 pgs.
By Dave Brainwreck

My grandmother wouldn’t subscribe me to MRR for Christmas that year because she didn’t like the cover. That’s probably the simplest and best way to describe this magazine if you somehow haven’t come across it
