Be your own publisher.

I'm a writer, I guess. I used to have dreams of someone important finding my online blog and wanting to publish me. Then I realized, thanks to the enlightened wonder of anarchism and DIY, that I do not need a publisher and could do it myself. So I did. As it turns out, people are willing to pay to read my nonsense.

Shop policies

Last updated on April 30, 2022
* All of my zines are copied, cut, folded, and stapled by my own two hands. DIY or die, et cetera.

* They are almost always sent out within twenty-four hours of being ordered, but sometimes life gets in the way of that.

* They will come in some sort of recycled paper; it could be anything: a Denny's place mat, a Chinese food menu, a magazine page, a brown paper bag, a newspaper... one time, I used a pierogis box.

* Shipping prices are as exact as I can manage so as not to ever overcharge anyone for an already overpriced shipping charge.

* Your money that you pay me for my zines goes directly towards my travels, my Netflix account, and my rent. I live below the poverty line, so you're literally helping me. Thank you so much for supporting me.

Returns & exchanges

See item details for return and exchange eligibility.


Paypal is best, of course, but I am willing to work with you in any way I can to ensure you can get the item you want.

If sending cash, money order, or check, your item will be sent out within twenty-four hours of me getting it.

If you would like to negotiate a trade, I am always interested! Just send me a message!


Everything is sent first-class through the United States Postal Service. They don't give me a tracking number for free unless it's a certain size, so I can't always provide you with that.
