Happy International Women's Day! I'm back again with another fan project! This one is a fanzine for Yoshihiro Togashi's anime and manga Hunter x Hunter, possibly the only Weekly Shounen Jump manga where the co-protagonist ends the series by deciding to look after his beloved trans kid sister instead of embarking on further adventures. To celebrate all the great female and fem characters in this series, we put together this free fanzine, which you can read at the link above. It was important for us to create an inclusive zine, and I'd like to ask in comments for your suggestions for trans-inclusive feminist charities, especially European ones, as we are still deciding where we'd like to put any money left over at the of this project (the digital zine is free, the print zine is at cost, and we might do a merch drive for charity if we can find the right one).

About eight months ago, some discord friends and I decided we wanted to make a zine to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Final Fantasy VII. It's been a long ride, but happy to share the result with you guys because so many people poured their souls into this passion project and it came out amazing. Includes original art and writing from ~60 people, including eight non-fiction essays discussing topics ranging from Carl Sagan to 90s Japanese environmental activism. Cheers!

About six months ago, a bunch of journalists (including myself) drunkenly decided we should stop moaning about the lack of good long-form writing in magazines about television and do something about it.

There you'll find both free content like Sir Mortimer Wheeler - Archeology's forgotten TV hero, and our very first official issue: CTVT #1: Mummy, Can Men Be Prime Ministers Too? - just £2 (about $3) for over 80 pages of content.

In December I had laboriously cut and pasted every recipes into a MS Word document. I've PDF'ized the whole thing and posted it. I've made no attempt at editing or cleaning it up in any way. My Original MS Word file is also available. I've also posted my mother's awesome Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe.
