ALTERNATIVE INCITE #2, $?, 7” x 8½”, printed, 40 pgs.

This is the most well-organized and clean-looking zine I think I’ve read. The content ranges from interviews with a barbershop quartet singer, personal thoughts on living in a digital age, why America feels like a post-Soviet state, and reviews of zines. Everything was well formatted and felt almost sterile at times? The best part was the final piece, documenting the Midwest’s obsession with creating giant balls of twine (or rubber). –Tricia Ramos (Alternative Incite, PO Box 3067, Laurel, MD 20709, butter-lamb.com)
