Abstract:

Volume 1 -- This is the first comprehensive guidebook to the Zine Movement of self-publishing which started anew in the early 1990s, and continues with Internet blogs and publications like Found. Used in college classes, this how-to volume covers all aspects of self-publishing, including layout and design, promotion, marketing and distribution. Historical background covers everything from Benjamin Franklin's Poor Richard's Almanack to the science-fiction mimeographed zines of the 20s. Zines are independent, not-for-profit publications that counter the corporate monoculture of mainstream media, and are thus instrumental in keeping the torch of liberty and freethinking burning. Some very funny stories and illustrations punctuate this alternative-culture document from the underground.

Volume 2 -- Zines, Vol. Two includes a fantastic, in-depth interview with Dishwasher Pete, whose goal was to wash dishes in every state of America. Keffo of Temp Slave talks about very funny pranks on the job, and advocates restoring the I.W.W. (International Workers of the World). McJob continues the analysis of the workplace and its perils. John Marr discusses his favorite bizarre murders in Murder Can Be Fun. A history of proletarian novels is featured, plus reviews of many independent publications. This book has been used as a textbook in university classes for cultural studies, journalism, and media criticism.
