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

Subtitled “The Review Zine with Lunatic Fringe Tendencies,” this swift read basically does what Factsheet Five used to do about thirty years ago—reviews other zines and publications (plus a smattering of musical items and mail art thingies)—except it’s about one-eighth FF’s size. Preserving the independent postal culture of the pre-internet era is a noble impulse, but it’s also one that strikes me as a bit of an antiquarian windmill tilt at this point. “The point of this publication is to empower the postal network.” Best of luck with that. –Rev.
