The first time I ever heard of ‘zines/ fanzines was in Role-Playing Game Prozines, back in the 1980s. The scene waxed and waned. Recently, there’s been a bit of a revival in RPG ‘zines but no solid place to discuss them as a category unto themselves.
If you’re interested, please consider joining the (currently very small) WMZ group, Print Shops & Photocopiers. We have a Facebook presence [Divers Zinesters: Boo! Hiss!] but, going forward, I’ll be posting both there and here.
