A Zine Is Born

I've had so few worthwhile blog ideas in my head this past month I can hear them rattling around in there when I move, and that distracts me too much to even write any of those down. However, some folks are more prolific. David Burton has a brand new fanzine -- featuring the usual suspects -- including me, from my more inspired days. David says:

Just wanted to let you know that the first issue of my fanzine, PIXEL, is available for downloading.

PIXEL is essentially CATCHPENNY GAZETTE with a new name and format, designed more for onscreen reading, although it can still be printed out since it's done in 8 1/2 x 11 landscape format.

This issue features "Again Modest Proposals," humor by Jim Lavell (on the easiest way to rid fandom of the scourge of fanzines), Eric Mayer's "Notes >From Byzantium" column (on math & science, old records, Jules Verne, and taking out the trash), Dave Locke's "Difugalty: I Remember Lemuria, and Mu, Dimly" (cleaning a pool and drinking with Dean Grennell and David Hulan), Lee Lavell's "Much Nothings About Ado" (the soap opera PASSIONS), Peter Sullivan's new fanzine review column, "Being Frank," Chris Garcia's "Found In Collection" about people he's met at Baycons, and the lettercolumn. Art by Brad Foster and Rotsler.

It can be downloaded from efanzines
File size is approximately 500K

Now I have to go shake my head. Maybe an idea or two will fall out.
