LOOKING FOR UK OR EUROPEAN DISTROS

I’m looking for someone to distro the books and zines my micropress puts out. We currently ship everything from here in Canada, but it would be much easier to have someone else take over the international orders. Titles include:

Lockpick Pornography – http://www.lockpickbook.net - “It’s impossible to talk about a book like Joey Comeau’s Lockpick Pornography without first considering the way things like terror, gender, family values, and even the publishing industry are currently constructed, because every page in this grenade of a novel is written to blow them to bits. Everything is fair game to be smashed and reconstituted, from the boundaries of gender to the proper way to handle a closed door. This tiny, self-published spitfire also manages in turn to be funny, awkward and tender, all strung together with explicit, cover-your-kid’s-eyes sex and violence.”
- Junk Magazine

A Softer World – http://www.asofterworld.com – “While it has been called many things—from touching, poignant and depressing to uplifting and raucous—one thing is for sure: the photo-comic strip A Softer World is definitely provocative.”
- Publishers’ Weekly

Thanks!

Zine Review - Nobody can eat 50 eggs #25

Zine Review - Nobody can eat 50 eggs #25


This huge issue is by far one of my favorites, and has a lot of Steve Steiner artwork in it, but the real hilarity is in the writing. “How to be a Mad Scientist” is very, VERY funny, with such sub notes as, “Physical Traits of a Mad Scientist, Perfecting the Evil Laugh, Setting up a Laboratory, Assistants & Henchmen, Obtaining test subjects, Experimentation / Evil Schemes and Fighting the Government” and ends with the cool quiz, “What kind of criminal are you?” Very funny, can be had by contacting him directly:

SOURGRAPES: Calling all D.I.Y. kids!

Hi there,
My name is Sam. I help run a zine called SOURGRAPES ZINE. We're a local zine based in Lexington KY. We focus on teaching kids about D.I.Y. ethics, being posi, and why its important to support local art and music.
I wanted to write not only to introduce our zine to the livejournal zine world! But also to explain our predicament. You see, after a lot of pulling out hair and craziness we've decided to hire on a full-time zine team. We used to be submission based but it was pretty hard on our (then) small team.
So now we're looking for like minded zinesters and punks who support self publication, D.I.Y. ethics, posi beliefs, and who are interested in having some fun creating a great zine and keeping the underground press alive!


We're looking for:

- Columnists
- Interviewers
- Record reviewer **
- Zine reviewers **
- D.I.Y. guide writers **
- Survival guide writers **
- Bike Repair guide writers **
- Cover artists (for upcoming covers)
- Photographers
- Cartoonists (full-time strip)
- Proof readers **
- Printers
- + more!

If you think you could help us out or would like to become apart of our team, we'd love to have you! Write us at SOURGRAPESZINE@GMAIL.COM or through our myspace: http://myspace.com/sourgrapeszine
Once again we are looking for FULL TIME writers/artists (which means we will be interested in your submissions for each issue) were poor and cant pay you but we can offer free ad space, zine copies, zine reviews, and whatever Sam can knit you!

Thanks!
SAM
SG ZINE TEAM

Zine Review - Rose Gardens of Life No. 3

Zine Review - Rose Gardens of Life No. 3


Rose keeps the Long format, and continues to write long sweeping epic poetry. It’s almost all bittersweet, but clever, with her clever notes that hang in the air like the sound crystal makes when tapped. It’s enjoyable to me to read, smooth and easy like a good table wine. A buck and a half and very enjoyable

Snippet:

“If I could relive a time of sorrow or joy,

If I could choose to know all of my life’s sorrows gone.

What Joy could I then recall without the loss, what could I call gain.”

Zine Review - Rose Gardens of Life No. 2

Zine Review - Rose Gardens of Life No. 2


Rose has changed her format to the long fold one, which really seems to fit her way of writing – very quick and easy to read. This isn’t really a poetry zine like before, but instead one long and interesting story about bigotry and making value judgments. Rose’s mentality is clear here, about demonstrating tolerance and love to her fellow human being. A buck and a half and this zine just keeps getting better and better.

Snippet:

“When people are reduce to ‘those and you,’ it hurts the soul of the world. Whoever sees their world this way must surely have a dark empty hole in their own souls”

Zine Review - Rose Gardens of Life No 1

Zine Review - Rose Gardens of Life No 1


Rose Young’s initial foray into the zine world brings us a lightly collaged poetry zine, very simple and very evocative. Her poetry is direct, and it’s intention is to cause the reader to think and feel. From works based upon battles to finding herself, this little quarter/rough zine is a bit like life itself – a bit of this and a bit of that. A buck and a half and a very good little poetry zine.

Snippet:

“Finding myself, with every single breath

Finding my way, in a tide of rage.

The way I was raised.

Breaking and Shaking, my crystal cage.

Watching the pieces shatter,

To the ground.

Each piece a glittering treasure

But so very dangerous, too.”

Zine Review - Poems from July No 26

Zine Review - Poems from July No 26



Jessy Kendall’s poetry zine is a very surreal experience. It’s the kind of thing that you want to read before you go to sleep, because you know you’ll get some killer dreams about it. When we open it, the first poem we see the text is distorted, and looks very cool. While not limited to poetry by any means, this zine is very stream-of-consciousness and has heavy mail art type collage in it. It’s free for the asking, and you can contact Jessy at shirkATriseupDOTnet Very cool.

Snippet:

“I’m drunk walking with vinnie george

And our drums to the gypsy camp trying to fill

The glass piece just given to me.

I look down this corridor of black

With points of soft light”

Zine Review - Jelly Cake Vol 1 No 4

Zine Review - Jelly Cake Vol 1 No 4



Ben’s back and as funny as ever, with the, “Refreshingly Retro Pineapple Tart Issue”. While I’m not sure what Ben’s been dropping these days, his writing is every bit as funny and clear as the first three issues. From Maritza’s extended television viewing schedule, to Dance Dance revolution contests, Ben dances the gaumut of topics with his dry wit. I favored Hennepin’s article about Johanna Edina. Good work as usual, Ben and only a dollar and a half

Snippet:

“Walking so early in the morning reminds me of school. Having to ride the cheese bus. It’s the crispness in the air. Ooh, step on the leaf again…I adore that sound”

ChapBook - Mental foreplay for the classics, a brief memoir of Veronica

ChapBook - Mental foreplay for the classics, a brief memoir of Veronica


Brandon Follett’s collection of poetry has a nice color cover and has a nice heavy cardstock heft to it. Brandon’s poetry is emotive and rich, it’s like drinking a good Chianti. His topics are varied, and run the gaumet from lap dances to poetry readings. Brandon’s poetry is solid and the zine is well put together. If you're into poetry, this is a very good selection of work.

Snippet:

“Our relationship was a drinking binge

In a windowless basement.

Sometime when I awoke

I’d open the door

And it would be pitch black

Except for the glow of the full moon,

Other days I’d wake blinded by sun.”

Half sized, Five dollars

Order it right here

Zine Review - Volcano


Zine Review - Volcano

 


 

William Davidson returns, this time with an odd comic panel sequence, beginning with a female nude whose image is altered from panel to panel. It’s an interesting transformative set of panels, while certain images might be disturbing, if you look at this artwork as a whole unit, it’s very interesting and evocative. Quarter sized, twelve pages for a buck and a half.
