Erica's cut & paste typewritten perzine reminds me a lot of "doctrinal expletives," both in execution (the layout is simple blocks of text pasted over patterned backgrounds), & writing style, which is fairly wry & sarcastic, but still attempting to express some deeper ideas about stuff--stuff in this case including mental health, writing science fiction, misapprehensions of the rust belt, etc. some of the pieces, such as erica's scathing critique of a student filmmaker from wisconsin who maligned pittsburgh in an independent film, or her deconstruction of the icarus project & anti-psychiatry (this piece makes up a good percentage of the zine, delving into erica's personal experiences with psychiatry), or her piece about giving up on the pittsburgh science fiction-writing community because it was too focused on getting published & making money, were written especially for the zine. interspersed are fragments from her journal, mostly about mental health & journaling. this zine will be of particular interest to people struggling with mental health issues (regardless of your personal stance on psychiatry) & people who take writing seriously, either through journaling or writing fiction. - Paper Trail Distro
