Release date: Now

Notes:

Well, after printing this thing 5 months ago and watching it sit in a box in the corner of my living room doing nothing ever since, I can finally say, man, it’s out.

By ‘out’ I mean available for order in stripped down e-form on amazon, and on its way in glorious zine form to the following places:

Atomic Books [Baltimore]

The Coming Society [Hong Kong]

Sticky Institute [Melbourne]

Housmans [London]

Book Thug Nation [NYC]

Molasses [NYC]

Quimby’s [Chicago]

There are still 4-5 places we’re gonna add to this list, but you can find out more about these confirmed stockists here.

All of them are decent and well stocked with zines from all kinds of people, so even if you don’t like our one, you probably will like at least one zine there.

Also, if you want to order a copy, just e-mail us and we’ll see if there’s any left.

What’s in Issue 1 of this zine?

Well, there’s: Continue reading

Zine: Psycho Holosuite [Issue 1]

Pages: 80 [print version], 90 [e-version]

Contributors: Berit Ellingsen, Frankie Sachs, Soren Melville [cover artist], Thomas Stolperer, Marc Horne, Tyson Bley and me [Oli].

Release date: September 1st

Publication: Every 3-4 months hopefully

Notes:

Unlike the Gupter Puncher zines I’ve done before, I really like the name of this one.

The issue number was going to be higher to give the impression the zine’s been running for longer than it has, but I scrapped that idea and just went with ‘1’.

80 Pages isn’t that many, even with 6 other contributors.

Theme? Stories?

The first issue of this zine will deal with a] authenticity and b] dread.

The stories will be alive and integrated fluidly into the zine, not just put down on the page to be admired.

There will be e-mails and comments and tangents all over the place.

There will be time travel and dying astronauts and riker from Star Trek [barely] and a hybrid designed specifically to colonise Mars.

There will be a Ray Bradbury piss-take.

There will even be notes for most of the Freddy films written by me pretending to be Robert Englund. Continue reading

Zombelgangers // Marc Horne

Everyone had expected zombies and in a way were looking forward to it. After all of that TV about it,  people just sort of felt it was coming and they had had time to look at the pros as well as the cons. Caving in your neighbor’s skull with a shovel… and it was All Cool.  That had appeal. But the plague of weaponized people that came was much worse because you couldn’t kill them. Because they were you.

First incident was a man who woke up in bed with his own Doppelganger. Freaked out, lost his shit, homo anxiety. Then he recognized a droopy mole on the belly and then a face on this other head. But of course he didn’t believe he was really seeing a clone of his own face so he took a swing at it. And the face caved in like melon rinds, and a pound of blood and maggots fell out of it and then both the man and his dupe dropped dead on the floor.

There were more and more of them popping up over time, but really slowly. Slowly enough that it just sounded like bullshit, more and more people woke up with a doppelganger or found one curled up next to the fridge. Always the fridge. Humming. Continue reading
