AD INFINITUM
#8, free, 44 pgs.
By Speedway Randy

While I am probably going to stick with Noam Chomsky and Multinational Monitor, it’s good to see what people in your backyard are saying about politics.


ZISK #18
$2, 8½ x 6¾, Xeroxed, 22 pgs.
By Andrew Flanagan

Mike Faloon and Steve Reynolds of Brewster, New York, have been running off Zisks roughly twice a season for nine years now.


ZISK #18
$2, 7” x 8.5”, photocopied, 24 pgs.
By CT Terry

The guys who make Zisk promise “No sentimental Field of Dreams crap,” and bill their zine as “The Baseball Magazine for People Who Hate Baseball Magazines.”


XEROGRAPHY DEBT, #25
$3, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, printed, 63 pgs.
By Sean Stewart

Now published by Microcosm, Xerography Debt continues to chug along as one of only a tiny handful of print-based review zines still serving the zine community.


WHAT MANNER OF BEAST
$10, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, printed, 40 pgs
By Sean Stewart

I made the mistake of flipping to the back of this first (old habit) and finding the poem titled “Charles Bukowski is Dead.”


SUGAR NEEDLE #34
$2 or “good trades in zines or candy”, 8 ½” x 3 ½”, photocopied, 16 pgs.
By Maddy

A ridiculously specific topic that you really can’t find anywhere else. Yay!


SPECIOUS SPECIES #3
$5, 8½” x 5½”, offset, 136 pgs.
By Keith Rosson

Some folks actually came across as mild dipshits, but interesting dipshits


RIPPING THRASH #23
$?, 6” x 8 ½”, photocopied, 39 pgs.
By Noah W.K.

A lot of punk and political info packed tight here.


PUBLICK OCCURANCES #12
$2 or trade, quarter-size, copied and screened, 14 pgs.
By Billups Allen

#12 is an all heavy metal-themed issue, and for fans of the genre, it’s hard to put down.


WELCOME TO FLAVOR COUNTRY #18
$1, 5 ½” x 4 ¼”, photocopied, 22 pgs.
By Noah W.K.

Along with just listening to the song and going right to the next, he sat down and wrote a short anecdote about the song he just listened to.


TRAINWRECK #6
$1-2 or trade, 5” x 6”, photocopied, 20 pgs.
By Kurt Morris

The sixth issue of Trainwreck is comprised of writings that were originally intended as lyrics to songs for the author’s band to record but got too drawn out, so he wrote them into stories in a zine.


MAXIMUM ROCKNROLL #315
$4 U.S. and Canada, newsprint, 118 pgs.
By Juan Espinosa

Aside from the columns by the usual suspects, there are interviews with bands Punch, Blank Dogs, The Black And Whites, Insomnio, Etacarinae, Skin Like Iron, and Come On.


GIVE ME BACK #5
$1.50, 8 ½” x 11”, newsprint, 64 pgs.
By CT Terry

Columns discuss classism and sexual harassment, latent conservatism in Hüsker Dü lyrics, punk politics in a university setting, and the importance of a good night’s sleep.


GET WELL
$3 or trade, 5” x 7”, photocopied, ? pgs.
By Guest Contributor

Chris has been around the block a few times and has many stories to share—both happy and sad—but he’s also got some reviews in here and a piece on Phil Ochs’ greatest hits.


GADGIE #20
5 ½” x 8 ½”, photocopied, 32 pgs.
By CT Terry

I’ll take personality over information in a zine any day


MAXIMUM ROCK ‘N’ ROLL #311
8 ½” x 11”, $4, 118 pgs.
By The Lord Kveldulfr

All of the standard fare is here, such as record and zine reviews, columns, band interviews, etc., but the topical focus of this issue is quite interesting: “Print media is dead,” which, of course, is meant to be taken ironically.


ETIQUETTE
$? or trade, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 75 pgs.
By Sean Stewart

If you think you need help in the etiquette department, read it for yourself and see how it suits you.


DIY OR DON’T WE #1
$3 ppd. US $4 ppd. Canada and Mexico, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, printed, 39 pgs.
By Noah W.K.

Here we have thirty-nine pages screaming of cuteness; regular people like me or you discussing community and togetherness through memories of firsts or about the little groups they are in and how you can make a difference.


DIY OR DON’T WE #1
$3 ppd. US $4 ppd. Canada and Mexico, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, printed, 39 pgs.
By Noah W.K.

The feel-good stories inside can make even the grumpiest feel a little smug and secure for even a moment.




BONUSCUPPED
#2, ?/trade, 8¼” x 5¾”, printed, 36 pgs.
By Andrew Flanagan

Besides the travel pieces, most of it was cheeky, radical, and readable. And it has an interview with Todd Taylor editor and publisher of Razorcake.




BYKES AND BRIDGES
$?, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, photocopied, ? pgs.
By Kurt Morris

In what might have been another anarchic, politically leftist zine, the author has instead taken some songs he has written, placed them on a cassette tape, and then included this zine which gives the thoughts behind the songs and includes the lyrics as well.


DRUNKEN MASTER
#11, $4, 8 ½” x 11”, color cover, offset, 61 pgs.
By Todd Taylor

Instead of an anachronistic exercise, Drunken Master embodies why punks took to zines in the first place. Its sole contributor, Kiyoshi, openly embraces all the little things that haven’t been replaced by the innerweb: cross-page spreads, the absolute dynamite of black, black ink on non-flickering white pages, the flow of an interview over eight pages without having to use a mouse to scroll down.


BONUSCUPPED
#1, 50p (no price in dollars listed), 5 ½” x 8 ½”, copied, 32 pgs.
By Sean Stewart

For a first issue, this is pretty good. Major contents cover music (interview with Thomas Barnett from Strike Anywhere), politics (article on Czech president, and a suggested tongue-in-cheek speech for Noam Chomsky), cycling (travelogue from southwest Britain), and reviews (live and recorded music, zines).


BAD DATE ZINE, THE
#2, ?, 8½ x 5½, printed, 27 pgs.
By Andrew Flanagan

The Bad Date Zine could be considered a bitchfest first and foremost, actually. The difference being this one is mostly well written, funny, and with a diversity of voices, all talking about—what else?—shitty dates: lies about herpes, narcissists, and overly personal daddy-issue reveals.


ANY BEANS NECESSARY
1, $2, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, photocopied, ? pgs.
By Kurt Morris

Inside this spray-painted cover is a zine dedicated to the Vancouver (WA) Burrito Project (VBP), which buys ingredients from local stores to make vegan burritos for the homeless in and around Vancouver (I’m guessing that means Portland, too?)
