Luscinia

"Luscinia is a latin word that means nightingale. Brittany's writing seems to be as lifting and delicate as I would imagine a nightingale to be.

Like a Fish Flopping on the Land "This zine is a detailed ins-&-outs story of the author’s experience of mental illness. I’m really pleased to have this zine in my catalogue as I always welcome writing on this topic as I know how important it is for the writer. As well as there being the ultimate importance of breaking the taboos surrounding discussion of mental health. The narrator intimately describes endless visits to (ludicrously unhelpful) doctors, the difficulty of finally accepting that she has a “problem”, the fear of being a burden on her friends coupled with the fear that she is wasting her life. Is hard going, firstly because of how much you want to drop-kick her GP and also because of how painfully familiar it is to anyone who has experienced something similar. But it’s a valuable read." Quoted and available to order from Cause & Effect Distro.

LoveYou Sweetheart "Love you sweetheart is a personal zine by Calgary.
So that is how I will drive the writing, for the time being. It will be with these episodic tiptoes into journaling as I write poetry and try to understand the queer melodrama of my brain. This is short journallish writing about Calgary's life: visiting New York and intending to move there, studying and writing, manic depression, fainting in the shower, getting her life in order and becoming "a girl who needs a purse" again. This issue also includes a sonnet and some of Calgary's photography." Quoted and available at http://www.moonrocket.co.nz/.

Little
(Australia)
"'Sometimes I feel little. When I’m sitting down I feel this way. I see everyone as bigger than me. When I stand up it’s like I’m growing abnormally, shooting up past people’s heads.' Joanna collects random fragments from her life and brings them together in this zine. Like going to Officeworks, or out for a cookie, or looking at a photo from her 9th birthday party, or going to an art exhibition. One of the reasons zines intrigue me so much is how the reader is able to piece the blanks through the clues the writer leaves. It’s interesting why zinesters choose to write about certain things and not others, and to see if a theme or idea exists in the miscellaneous." Quoted and available from Smitten Kitten Distro.

Lack of Decorum
(Canada)

"This issue of Lack of Decorum is a political perzine where Melonie is firing shots tous azimuts. She keeps her readers up with her life, and with that comes the rest of issues in the world that she comments on. First comes some nuanced commentary on the Iraq war, followed by a guide deciphering doublespeak as uttered by the main players of the game, reclothed in new gear. (Sadly, her Emperor does wear clothes...) She has a descriptive list of some important websites that offer critical commentary about current political issues. With that she adds her own comments on her ambivalence towards staying on top of all the news, versus her need to shut it all off and live a blissful life. Other articles dwelve on her personal adventures and tribulations, for example her tale of being busted at the A-town Silvercity. The most interesting though, from my perspective, is her analysis of the awkward relationship between Broken Pencil and the zine scene, making some quite astute observations on the pages of the magazine itself."

The rest of the zine is made up of activist and anti-oppressive resources and writing by GOG members, including an outline for a workshop for white feminists to examine white privilege and racism, a call for a wide definition of what are considered feminist texts, more about bathroom activism including a reprint of most of the material from The Bathroom Activist zine, along with a piece by a bathroom janitor on how to carry out bathroom graffiti effectively so that it makes things easier for the people who have to clean up after you, "speech and silence" as related to gender and privilege, art's place in revolution and more."

"There are a variety of people interviewed in this zine, we felt it was important because we planned to use a variety of writing from different times of our lives... this started out as a zine to combine our writings on monogamy/non monogamy but it grew into a census of sort." motto on back page: "i came to you for a crown and you offered me a kingdom." Amber and Jesse put out this zine that is on non-monogamous and monogamous relationships. Both of them went out and actually interviewed a series of people. To find out who was a proponent of loving one person or having various partners then pick- up this zine.

Laughter and the Sound of Teacups
(Australia)

There is no issue number to this zine. But, it has a time frame for the 23rd of March 2002. Anyhow, this one is a short story but It just may be someone’s actual life. It has a lot to over being that the print is quiet small. Vanessa

“We are more than the sum of our confusion and insecurities.” If you enjoy comic theme zines then I recommend this one. The drawings are delectable. Also, the comics each have voices that come across as quotes of wisdom, desperation and life.

“Four thousand dollars would make everything so much easier. I could get rid of the credit card bill that has gone to collections.” This zine is about a women’s testimony on being an egg donor. I was going to include the last journal entry of this zine, but that would just ruin it.
