Hi David, just came across your interesting message and am compelled to respond.
Well, today you qualify as a tested veteran of the Golden Age of Zines due in part to the simple fact that you somehow have managed to survive and can thus provide a presence and testimonial here in the New Order of things.
I think you just had some bad beginner's luck. BFS and Neither/Nor was an anarchist press w/ an agenda and group of people they wanted to promote. I believe they ran into money and labor problems and ceased to function. At the same time, a big small press guide featured them and I think they were buried in submissions they could never hope to publish.
Factsheet 5 - great publication - was another high visibility piece and Gunderloy would use you if you fit his purposes, but there was hardly an open or fair editorial policy there. Don't get me wrong. FF5 was important served an important function.
There were SO many zines. You probably had work appear places and you didn't know it. But the primary approach, even during the zines, was direct one-on-one w/people. So you probably did better than you think.
And now you're here to tell your own story. You should. We're all trying to patch together what actually happened back then.
I've sent you something today, please let me know when you receive it :)
Fun stuff going in and out on your page. Thanks for connecting! Hello.thank.you.jpg
