I curated an Exhibit on the history of sf zines, mounted in the Atrium Gallery of the Pollak Library, October, 2020. See rare, early zines from the beginning of sf.
Released by Fairwood Press, Mingus Fingers is about Jazz and a young boy who uses music to bend reality…part of Egyptian Motherlode, a novel about a Funk musician with strange powers named The Prophet.
