The following list, by John Labovitz (johnl@netcom.com), provides an continually-updated collection of them. The updates are available via ftp from netcom.com in the /pub/johnl/zines directory in the file e-zine-list)). ++++++++ Last updated: 9-Nov-93 by John Labovitz This is a summary of electronically-accessible zines. The format of this document should be fairly self-explanatory. In most cases, descriptions are excerpted from the masthead of the zine listed.

Comments, suggestions, changes, deletions, etc., are welcomed and encouraged. WHAT IS A "ZINE"? For those of you not acquainted with the zine world, "zine" is short for either "fanzine" or "magazine," depending on your point of view. Zines are generally produced by one person or a small group of people, done often for fun or personal reasons, and tend to be irreverent, bizarre, and/or esoteric. Zines are not "mainstream" publications -- they generally do not contain advertisements (except, sometimes, advertisements for other zines), do not have a large subscriber base, and are generally not produced to make a profit. FORMATS Most e-zines listed here are in standard ASCII text format, which you can read on just about any computer or terminal, and print on any printer. A few are available in PostScript for printing on a laser printer (or viewing on-screen if you have a PostScript interpreter in your window system). A small number are available in some system-specific format (i.e., Macintosh HyperCard). HOW DO I GET THE E-ZINES? I have listed the various methods of access for each particular e-zine. Briefly, I use the following: FTP -- File Transfer Protocol Only accessible if you are directly on the Internet, or know of an FTP-mail server (I don't). The host/pathname is given in the form (host:path) that certain FTPs (like NCFTP) can use directly; otherwise, you'd probably type "ftp host" and then "cd path" or some such. All FTP sites listed accept anonymous logins (use "ftp" as username and your email address as password). E-Mail -- Electronic Mail You can usually request current or back issues via this address. Sometimes a site will run a mail server that automates some of this work. Instructions are listed, if applicable. Usenet -- Usenet News Only accessible if your site carries the specific Usenet group. Gopher Only accessible if your site is directly on the Internet. Try typing "gopher". If it works, you have a gopher client, and can usually type "gopher host". WWW -- World Wide Web Only accessible if your site is directly on the Internet, and supports a WWW-compatible hypertext browser. Current browsers include www (ASCII line mode), lynx (ASCII full-screen mode), xmosaic (X Windows), Mac Mosaic (Macintosh), PC Mosaic (PC), Cello (PC), and probably a few others. Postal Last resort, or point of contact for zines that have paper editions. Phone Why? I dunno; because it was there. CompuServe You know, that out-dated system that charges ridiculous rates. Other BBSes and other on-line systems the zine resides on. SYSTEMS ARCHIVING E-ZINES The following are sites that archive e-zines. Many of them are primary archive points for e-zines in this list.
