ASYMMETRICAL ANTI-MEDIA, #14, $1, 5½” x 8½”, copied, 8 pgs.

Jan 27, 2023

Asymmetrical Anti-Media, also known as “The Review Zine that Loves Antiquarian Windmill Tilts,” is back with Issue #14, brimming with reviews. After briefly explaining in the intro that, “This issue is rather delayed, because I moved,” creator Jason Rodgers dives right in, cramming more than twenty-five reviews within the eight pages of this photocopied, black-and-white zine. The overwhelming majority are reviews of zines—for instance, of Dangerous Encounters #7, Behind the Zines #11, and Out from the Void #4, among many others. But there are also reviews of poetry chapbooks, music (via cassette tapes), mail art, and journals. Of all Jason’s reviews in #14, I’m most intrigued by the one for Cookbook Bookmarks, Breyeanne Thrax’s zine on ephemera used as bookmarks in old cookbooks, which makes me really want to check it out. –Gina Murrell (Jason Rodgers, PO Box 701, Cobleskill, NY 12403)
