Zine Review - The Hss Reader No 5
Another thick issue, HSS Reader is what many mainstream (maga)zines strive to be. Informative, witty, and downright cool, this issue was considered the, ‘Easy’ one due to the high volume of submissions – it’s no wonder why, who wouldn’t want a piece of their work in it. Of course we still have the same high production values, 40 pages for a buck. One thing I like is about how Olivia tells you how she’s trying to improve her zine – an ever reaching quest for something better – that’s just something mainstream media will never admit to. Of particular interest is, ‘stumble into fame’. Bad idea / Better idea, is great as usual, and should be common sense – but it’s obvious that it’s not, so it’s here for all to see. The usual good stuff, crafty bits, music, lit & art reviews. Travel story (great as usual – this time by Celeste Tabora), interview (tightened up considerably), Comics & Credits. Brill work as usual, keep it up Olivia. Tastes like: Dark Chocolate with nuts.
“If you know who we are at HSS you know why there is no time for hobbies such as writing, editing, cutting, gluing, copying, shopping, folding, stapling and labeling each and every issue we send out - usually along with a hand written letter. It’s fun believe us you, but between all the jobs, the people, the demands of city life, and the other hobbies we play favorites with, it’s hard to make this thing a regular publication. But we will try our damnedest to make them more frequently.”
One buck, and worth much more. Email the creator directly, until I get stock in.
