Here are links to pdfs of all of my zines (made by/participated in). Most of the zines done before computron technology made it easier to make electronic copies available have yet to be scanned. Soon my pretties, soon. I was still making hard copy originals for photocopying as late as 1997 (the first version of The Journal of Doctor Shamass for instance). To quote another zinester: “I may make […] a late-life masterpiece. […] Watch out for it.”
