The first issue of Behind the Wheel is one of those instant zine classics that only come along every so often. Kelly Dessaint becomes a Lyft driver in a rapidly changing San Francisco and chaos ensues. Dessaint, an old-school zine curmudgeon of the highest order, is the perfect guide for this journey—never bought in, ever out of place, always questioning. 

Within: learning the ropes, techwads, cops, required fist bumps, class war...[ continued ]

When Death Knocks is a personal zine written by Death himself. Or, more specifically, written by a lowly "Transition Officer" working for the agency of Death. A morbid and tender piece of writing from the postmortem zine scene. I can say with some certainty that there's nothing else quite like this.

24 pages, quarter-size, cut-and-paste.

This long-awaited new issue of Behind the Wheel comes a few years into Kelly's stint as a licensed cab drive, and he's in full politicized grumpy cabbie mode for this one. A continuation of his look at an ever-changing San Francisco and a nuanced take-down of Uber and Lyft, this issue of Behind the Wheel looks at the realities and logistics of surviving and supporting a family as a driver for hire...[ continued ]

The latest in Jennifer Williams' well-loved workbook zine series. We Need Emotional Labor: Discussion Questions to Redistribute the Work that Holds Communities Together​ is an essential guide to understanding both the value of emotional labor and the imbalance of it.

In her in-depth introduction, Williams asks, "What toxic systems can be uprooted if we start to wipe away the idea that taking care of each other is a burden?" While also pointing out that "There are questions we need to ask, though, before this giving and receiving: Is it consensual? Is it valued? Is it reciprocal?" (Clementine Morrigan...[ continued ]

In the first volume of Mapping Out Utopia, Tim Devin looks at a wide range of counterculture organizations in 1970s Cambridge, Massachusetts. While its focus at first glance seems local (and will hold particular interest to those familiar with Cambridge), Devin uses the place as a microcosm of the time period examining the larger-scale movements these organizations were connected to...[ continued ]

In a series of interviews with queer women and non-binary folks, Fear, Safety, & Femmes examines what safety looks like. What places and people create a sense of safety? Which qualities in people create a sense of danger? What self-defense tools and techniques do people use to feel safer?

20 pages, cut half-letter size.

There are a lot of things I love about this little zine. Its subject, for one (hometowns!). But also its wonderful nostalgia, its sadness, its subtle beauty. I also love that most the authors seem to be in their early to mid-30's and have this tempered idealism. Many are coming home or pining for home, or wanting to find home, or wishing they'd got out and it's so beautiful and tragic, all at once...[ continued ]
