ISSUE #1 – SPRING 2020: This issue features an introductory rant about getting off your ass and doing the thing, hot takes on important articles you (probably) haven’t read, an op-ed about “getting off the hamster wheel,” an examination of the “new normal” (whatever that is), adventures in anachronism (aka: life lived off-line), an interview with musician Suvo Sur (who produces scores for award-winning films and podcasts), advice and insight from the Butter Lamb Reference Library, and a remembrance of and shout out to the “Doyenne of Dictionaries.” Specs: 40 pages, size: 7 x 8.5 (half-size legal)

Want to support small business and get the latest copy of Alternative Incite? Then support these small businesses cool (and nice!) enough to carry this zine:

Quimby’s Bookstore (Chicago)
Atomic Books (Baltimore)
Quimby’s Bookstore (NYC).


Jailed By My Father: Tales of Tough Love, Bad Haircuts, and O.J.

The title says it all. The short stories in this book are all true and in some cases, regrettably so. There is no theme, no plot, and no lesson. They are simply the unfortunate stories of a very fortunate boy. Oh, and they’re laugh-out-loud funny
