EGGY’S DEAD #2, 5½” x 8½”, copied, 36 pgs.

Eggy’s Dead is an entirely submission-based literary zine. This second issue is pretty poetry heavy, but they accept all forms and styles of literature. The poems weren’t really that interesting to me, but one short story entitled, “This Machine Thanks You for Your Attention” by Kevin Esposito really stood out. A future-realism look into our lives being controlled and dependent on robots, their story didn’t really seem all that far off from how we are already addicted and attached to our machines, and how it can only get worse. The zine also featured some really cool abstract art, which helped break up the poetry. –Tricia Ramos (Eggy’s Dead, riotradiopodcast.com)
