Zine Review: Portals

Category: Issue 66, News, Reviews

  Perzine, Louisa Tsui, louscribbles.com, price not listed   In a few short pages with a few short words, Louis Tsui walks you through a whole life; a whole life of emotions and events and the process of growing up. The front cover of Portals includes a series of images that are both symmetrical and […]

Zine Review: Wintering Prairie

  Chapbook, Megan Kaminski, above/ground press, abovegroundpress.blogspot.com, $4   There’s a preparatory tone in the first page of this long poem that lends itself well to the images of wintering conjured by its title (wintering: to lodge, keep, or care for during the winter). “This poem will be a long one,” warns Megan Kaminski, “will […]

As David Menear describes it, the tree “looms there like some dark omen of what lies within.” Menear’s stories — some […]

Zine Review: Juggling Fire, Blindfolded

  Chapbook, Eric Evans, Ink Publications, inkpublications.com, $5   This poetry collection all but ignites in your hand, so infused is it with the force of fire. Eric Evans really lights it up in chronicling a romantic relationship—from its passionate beginning to its smoldering end. Although many of the poems are emotionally raw, the nerves […]
