Ah, spring is coming, the time of year that a young man's thoughts turn to baseball and illegally distilled homemade liquors. And also too, time for another trip to the PO Box!
This time around, a light load. Two bucks, a couple of letters, and just two publications:
- Intersections ($3, Eight Stone Press, PO Box 11064, Baltimore, MD 21212; www.eightstonepress.com). Man Bill Tandy and 8SP is a busy bunch, eh? And more power to 'em. I have no idea what this zine's about, frankly, as I haven't read it yet and it lacks the sort of easy-to-digest cover patter that a smooth mind like mine likes for easy distillation. But, they use a quote from me in one of their advertisements, so they rock.
- Zine World #27 ($4 US, $5 CAN, PO Box 330156, Murfreesboro, TN 37133; www.undergroundpress.org) Yea! Another issue of ZW, which we love. Contains a good review of TIS, as well, which is always nice, and a bad review of one of my novels, which is the risk you take. It's a *funny* bad review, which takes some of the sting out of it.
And that was it. Never a bad day when there's *something* in the box, so I ain't complaining.

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.
