Celia and I made 24-hour zines together, but we only spent 12 hours on them. Hers is an adoring and adorable mini Sherman Alexie fanzine, because she is an adoring and adorable fan of the American Indian fiction writer.
The zine starts off with Celia talking about why she loves the Sherm, with her usual personal and political, thoughtful but not too serious, writing style. She then shares her favorite quotes and tweets, which often focus on race issues, but also represent more intimate views into Alexie's psyche, that also reveal something about Celia's. A fanzine may always be more about the fan than their subject. In reading about Celia's love for Sherman Alexie, I see a lot of what I love about Celia--her passion for print and postal mail, her disgust for privileged assholes, and her nontraditional/unaligned spirituality with a little bit of punk mixed in.
The zine contains one photo--of Celia and her beloved at the latter's book signing at the American Library Association conference in June 2012. My copy has a heart drawn around their faces, but don't tell Celia's husband that.
Email Celia for info about getting Sherman Sez, or any of her other brilliant, poignant, funny zines.
