After a long absence, the second edition of Chase Kamp's The Complete Speculative Red Hot Chili Peppers Fan Fiction is finally here. TCSRHCPFF is a gloriously odd collection of interlinked short stories based on the lives and careers of past and present members of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Within: "Red Hot Chili Parents," "Rick Rubin's Mansion," and "Retired Hot Chili Peppers," culminating at the end into something truly unexpected.

With a new introduction about how the collection came to be. 58 pages, half-letter size.

Synopsis: The year is 2024 and the Red Hot Chili Peppers prepare to make their grandest musical statement yet—but is it already too late? In this three-part speculative fan fiction, the funk-punk legends must overcome self-doubt, creative blockades and a crumbling music industry in order to save all of rock music from irrelevance. Inspiration is sought in metaphysical realms, beers are shotgunned beside Laurel Canyon swimming pools, chords ring out in a new gilded age. Artwork by James Glimmer.

A second short collection of short poems (in handsome mini-zine form) from Murder City Devils' frontman Spencer Moody. Playful, silly, occasionally gruesome. For fans of Richard Brautigan, Kate Greenstreet, and Zachary Schomburg.

24 pages, cut quarter-size. Released on Displaced Snail Publications.

A highly enjoyable series of comics adapted from music biographies. Within: Bob Dylan's makeshift Blood on the Tracks backing band, Kurt & Courtney's mac-and-cheese trials, John & Yoko's primal scream therapy, John Coltrane being a good guy, Mike Watt wearing a pumpkin on his head, the feuds of J Mascis & Lou Barlow, and Kristin Hersh's evil self.

40 pages, half-letter size.

Cul-De-Sac, the long-running collaboration between childhood friends Liz Mason (Caboose zine) and Julie Halpern (Get Well Soon and various young adult gems), is a joy of pop-culture odds and ends.

36 pages, half-letter size.

Growing up in '80s dance movies and the once ever-present beauty of Girls Just Want to Have Fun. A story of breaking up with someone because they didn't like The Matrix. A Supernatural (TV show) convention. Eulogies to Toys“R”Us and a bagel shop. It's a good time.
