Vique ‘Simba’ Martin (Chimps #2)

Simba was the zine that Vique Martin (Brighton/Leeds), a Psychology Master, did in the 90s. Her writings were always ultra-personal but thought-provoking. She was the zine-heroine of many, a pain-in-the-arse for others. A ‘chick up front’ that wouldn’t take no … Continue reading

Laura ‘Synthesis’ W. (Never Again #1)

Somewhere in the second half in the 90s a person named ‘Albatross’ wrote me and ordered my zine. Turned out that she was an American living in London, U.K. (She became a British citizen in 2005.). We corresponded, met, went … Continue reading
