The latest Library Journal zine reviews column, Where the Boy Zines Are is up. It was contributed by Katie Haegele, one of my favorite of the current generation of zine makers. I asked Katie to focus on zines by men in order to offset my personal and professional bias toward women's zines. To date we've reviewed approximately twice as many zines by women as by men. I don't know the demographics of zine publishing, so I'm not sure if female identified authors are as dominant as that. It's pretty unlikely.

Since I graduated from high school, I stopped going to church, I discovered found poetry, and I got my wisdom teeth out. (introduction, 1st page)
When people ask me whether people are still making zines today, I often tell them about Katie Haegele's wonderful literary zines. The one that prompted me to write this post, Word Math, is a collection of found poems, created from thrifted manuals, spam, and craigslist personals. The last is what particularly slayed me. You can listen to Katie reading it.
