Who and What We Are

Xerography Debt is a review zine for zine readers by zine writers (and readers). It is a hybrid of review zine and personal zine (the ancestor to many blogs). The paper version has been around since 1999. This blog thing is are attempt to bridge the gap between Web 2.0 and Paper 1.0. Print is not dead, but it is becoming more pixelated.

In My Mailbox 1-9-09

Well, I'm drunk as a skunk. Went to dinner with my brother at a place well-known for its beer taps, then back home for a few snorts of whiskey before shuffling off. So I thought, what better time to post about things in my PO Box?

-- MAXIMUMROCKNROLL #308 ($4, PO Box 460760, San Francisco, CA 94146-0760; www.maximumrocknroll.com) As heath said in another post: Thank god for MMR. This issue contains a review of TIS that is best described as "mystified". I'm not very much of a punk, but I love MMR and hope it continues.

-- Tenebrous Thaumaturgy (trade, Andrew Conde, GCDC, 2120 East B Street, Torrington WY 82240). An interesting full-size photocopied zine. I first encountered the term "Thaumaturgy" years ago in the fantasy novel "Master of the Five Magics" by Lyndon Hardy. I still have a real soft spot for that book (and its sequels), so the title to this really grabbed me. Andrew's a prisoner, so if you've got extra copies of something lying around, send 'em to him, why not?

Do you think that Andrew would be interested in trading for a book or two? I don't have any zines to trade him (I'm a librarian, though, with tons of freebie books he might like) and I'm interested in getting together a mini-collection of zines to show my powers-that-be what zines are and why we should start getting them for our permanent collection here in my library, and his sounds like a perfect example of what I'd want to show them.......
