I've only just flipped through this book, reading a page here, a bit there, but I can already tell it's awesome. I like that it gives me a little taste of a lot of different writers and artists. I will definitely follow up reading this book with contacting folks included in the anthology and requesting their complete zines.

Recommends it for: zine fans or people with short attention spans
My caveat first: my zine is in this anthology. And so is one of my housemate's. And one of my best friends in town. So, I may be biased. Still, I think this is a fine collection of 2007 zines. There's a diverse mix of fiction, non-fiction, and comics. Generally, a good read, especially if you have a short attention span or need something to read that you can pick up and put down a lot. Recommended.
