Zine Cover web In the long ago, a distant past, fans of the genre cobbled together collections of horrifying tales, assembled them with state-of-the-art (circa 1985) page layout software, and ran off copies on ancient mimeograph machines, and they were called ‘zines. The results, sometimes, were awful: poorly photocopied, badly edited labors of love distributed via the post office for a buck or two an issue – and hardly worth the paper they were printed on.

But sometimes, the results were extraordinary. A great many authors got their starts in the ‘zines. And now, THE ZINE presents six of them: Brian Keene, Yvonne Navarro, Bryan Smith, Kelli Owen, Armand Rosamilia, and John Urbancik. This is, essentially, a callback to the days when ‘zines ruled the underground.

THE ZINE costs $2, and is ONLY AVAILABLE at Scares That Care Weekend! All proceeds will go directly to the charity.


  1. Will there be a limit as to how many I can purchase? At least 5 people are asking me to pick up copies. I’m glad to help but don’t want to promise something I can’t deliver.
