Baffler A batch of Hyde Park PhDs put this
journal together, smacking The Man across his globular rump on a
Jubilee An anthology of past Baffler
writings published by W.W. Norton and Co. I have an article in there,
somewhere. Yes, it does sound like an erotic dessert, doesn't it?
Happy The editrix of this zine is Donna Kossy,
late of Kooks zine, author of Kooks and Strange
Creations (both available from Feral
House), and a friend. Book Happy covered the

Porn The Dan Kelly motherlode, I published
this mess back in 1997 as my death rattle in the zine world. Essays on dog-eating, cannibalism,

A razor-sharp thinker and comics criticism adept, Dan's assessments
of Dan Clowes, Jack T. Chick, and Chris Ware leave me feeling much
like a boil-assed baboon lazing in the sun, picking nits from my
fur and chewing on them. I make an appearance in issue number 3.
These Times Lefty magazine for which I've
done a single article-length book review.
Unlimited Back when they were still in business, I wrote two articles for their catalog, which later appeared
in an anthology called Loompanics Unlimited Conquers the Universe.
Check eBay if you're some sort of Dan Kelly completist weirdo.
An list of the Web's strangest, funniest, and most
intriguing sites. I haven't submitted anything to them in years. Doesn't look like many of the other contributors do either. Oh well, go check out Metafilter or boingboing instead.
New City Local free weekly paper here in Chicago.
Ragtime Ephemeralist Nepotism reigns, but
in this case it's a good thing. My brother-in-law Chris published
this biannual journal of articles on ragtime music, following the
tweezers approach to research. I'm in the third issue.
