Back in the late 80s I put together a 'zine' and had it reviewed in FactSheet Five. Hundreds of people from around the world sent me letters with either a dollar bill or a 'zine' of their own in trade.
Four issues were published over the course of 2 years. The content was made up of stuff I wrote and drew, lots of stuff by Ed Masters and some of my other friends, and a whole lot of stuff sent to me by strangers through the mail.
