Some zines

[A poster image]

When this page was started in the late nineties, there were zines (printed on paper), e-zines (electronic publications created in the same spirit that drives zine-making), and websites that acted as an online presence for paper zines. This page was devoted to links to some sites from the latter two categories.

Things have changed since then. The links below, mostly dating from that time, now connect chiefly to archival pages and inactive (but still extant) sites, as well as contemporary blogs written by the people who used to do zines and information about books based on defunct zines and e-zines, but no longer to the personal pages and curriculum vitae of queer, punk kids who've become academics (hello, Donny, Mimi, et al.).
