Once, not so long ago but in a place very different from here, there lived a little goblin boy. As everyone knows, all little goblins are called boys until they grow up and pick whether they want to be a goblin man or goblin woman or something else entirely.

This little goblin’s name was Jessup, and he wanted to be a runner more than anything else in the world. In those days, people used runners to pass messages between one village and the next. They had telephones, of course, but ringing someone up was considered rude and was only done in emergencies.

Every spring, each village held competitions to see which goblins were the fastest. The winners competed against the human boys in the great summer festival. Human children, of course, are both boys and girls. But the girls weren’t allowed to compete because human culture is sexist.

Mythmakers & Lawbreakers

Mythmakers and Lawbreakers


Purchase ($12)

A year after AK Press released our own Margaret Killjoy’s Mythmakers & Lawbreakers: Anarchist Writers On Fiction (featuring interviews with such Strangers-published authors as Octavio Buenaventura, Jimmy T. Hand, and The Catastrophone Orchestra), we’re pleased as hell to offer the entire book in zine format.

Rather, in sixteen-zine format. We’ve split up each interview, as well as the introduction and the appendices, into their own zines so that each one can actually be printed and stapled. We haven’t laid them out in A4 format yet, unfortunately. If you live elsewhere in the world, it isn’t too hard to simple “shrink to fit” and the zine’s text is only slightly smaller.

Get in the airlock,” Danarchy said, threatening the freighter captain with a scimitar.

“You’re going to rename my ship the Theremin?”

“You think I’m happy about it? I wanted it to be the Aus-Rotten, but it’s not my turn now is it? It’s Evey’s turn and she wants it called the Theremin. You have a problem with it, take it up with her.”

A year after we released Inertia Is A Motherfucker #1, we’re pleased to bring out the second issue of this sorta-anonymous personal zine, subtitled I’m Not Cool. This issue gets into the author’s childhood trauma of schoolyard abuse and ties it into social issues relating to the anarchist scene. And it also rambles about Dungeons & Dragons and touches on some other crap too. The print PDF is paired with Space Pirates With Mohawks And Shit #1.
