BEHIND THE ZINES #8, $3, 8.5” x 11”, copied, 39 pgs.

Billy has put out another solid zine with this issue of Behind the Zines. For those who don’t know, Behind the Zines is, as Billy calls it, “A zine about zines.” There are contributions here from all sorts of individuals in the zine community and their pieces vary. There’s a self-written Q&A from Neither/Nor Zine distro, a few questions with zinester Julia Eff, and a piece by our very own Todd Taylor titled “One Punk Who Makes Zines.” Todd’s piece is a good explanation of the history of Razorcake and how it operates. But all the writing is good—whether it’s an author explaining how he put together his first zine or someone writing how they register people for a zine fest, there’s a lot to take in here. If you’re part of zine culture, you should certainly check this out. –Kurt Morris (iknowbilly@gmail.com)
