In two volumes, Queer Zines collects the variegated practices of zine makers past and present, from North America and Europe, and lists them alphabetically, starting with Toronto?s 88 Chins and ending with the Dean Sameshima zine Young Men at Play.
In a riotous assemblage of more than 400 pages, we find comprehensive bibliographies and sinful synopses for more than 120 zines, excerpted illustrations and writings by zine makers, reprints of important articles in and about queer zines, a directory of important zine archives, and a list of zine outlets around the world. It also includes a 1980 interview with Boyd McDonald by Vince Aletti, Bimbox's pop-up genitalia (alas, not popping up here), Adam Block?s early writings on zines from the Advocate, and excerpted interviews with GB Jones, Vaginal Davis, and Bruce LaBruce. The first volume updates and corrects the original edition of Queer Zines, published in 2008. The second volume adds more than 30 recent titles as well as fourteen new essays, including writing by Bruce LaBruce, Edie Fake, K8 Hardy, and Scott Treleaven.
