Honestly, bravo. Liz Mason polled many a zine reader (and makers) to ask, “What is the number one thing you don’t want in a zine?” And this is the result. No poetry, no self-indulgent drama or woes, no scene report, no music reviews. At first when I started reading it, I felt like I was being pranked. The content is a mishmash with no particular rhyme or reason, purposely contradictory, and complete with satire. It felt like it was written by Lewis Carroll (or at the very least, the caterpillar). At first I was mad, but once I realized it was intentionally made to be “The Most Unwanted Zine,” I got it. Also, I genuinely liked the five pages of just thirty photos of fire escapes. –Tricia Ramos (PO Box 477553, Chicago, IL 60647,
