Makers

Ian Koss swoons over the new coffee-table compendium of his fave zine, Make. The DIY revolution continues! Inventors will take back the garage from crappy garage bands!

An Opening Act of Unspeakable Evil

Using the blog format as a literary device is an innovative gambit, and Ian Koss is suitably impressed with the results in Jim Munroe's new novel. This also answers the question about what to do when you're young and you've got a winning occult ritual/performance art piece - go on tour with indie bands!

The Glaciers' Treasure Trove

Feel like a little something different for the Summer holidays this year? You might want to think about bypassing Daytona and maybe catch a wave to the Southeastern shore of Lake Michigan. Bob Pomeroy, as usual, does your research for you.
