When I was in college, I had some buddies who wanted to form a subversive anti-government group. It was all the rage in '93. I blame it on grunge music and flannel shirts at The Gap.
They weren't really serious, of course, and the Oklahoma City Bombing in April of 1995 put the squash on anything of the sort. Like I said--they weren't really serious.
The point is, everybody had a 'zine back in the day. Photocopies, staples. Mine was called The Killing Field and I published essays by my "radical" friends. That all seems so long ago, but I'm a little misty for the days of staples and photocopies. That's why the Sand chapbooks have been decidedly "old school". I feel like I missed out because I came to writing after the era of fiction 'zines hand-assembled in someone's basement. Easy to use blog sites and POD have really changed the nature of punk-rock publishing.
I know there are 'zines out there, but it just isn't the same era.
(One of my poems did appear in The Nocturnal Lyric #68 way back in the Fall/Winter of 1908--er, 2008. They knew how to use staples for sure.)
