CABILDO QUARTERLY #3 & #4: $1 each, 11” x 17”, photocopied, 2 pgs.

Nov 21, 2013

I can’t say I’ve come across a zine with these dimensions before. Both issues are an 11” x 17” double-sided piece of paper. As far as content, both issues consist of a few poems and one long fiction piece. So, in essence, it’s not so much a zine as a literary journal that’s very short. I don’t get poetry (which is strange because I write it), but the fiction stories weren’t bad. If you’re in the Orono, Maine, or Belchertown, Massachusetts, area you can pick this up for free. Otherwise, if you’re interested in reading some poetry and a fiction story, it’s a buck. The size makes it a bit unwieldy to read, so perhaps for future issues they might consider halving the physical size. Adding more content would be good, too. Not bad, but there’s not really much content here to comment about. -Kurt Morris (CQHQ, PO Box 784, Belchertown, MA01007)
