Our “genre” this month (Zines!) is one that is close to our hearts. We discuss our extensive and not so extensive backgrounds in zine reading and creation, what distinguishes zines from other self-publishing efforts, how Matthew is a big cheater, whether the motivations behind writing zines is different from reading zines, when Amanda and Meghan used to be twins, the best time of day to make a zine, perzines, artzines, wordless zines, and Kirk/Spock fan fiction.
