When did you launch your zine? What inspired you to do so?
1978. To spread the real teachings of those who have gone on before and to give them an opportunity to answer false charges made in other publications.

Why publish a zine?
Because others would not print articles carrying the Beloved's true statements. It became necessary for us to do so.

What can you tell us about the selection you provided for "The Book of Zines"?
LouWe were asked to do an interview with Lou Costello. We did a little research on him to get some questions, then began to contact him for the interview, and found him absolutely delightful! After the interview there was a lot of interest on radio stations about the movies they were still making in the spirit realm. It was one of our more delightful working experiences.

Any general tips for aspiring zinesters?
Begin small. Don't expect to make a lot of money. Do it for the love of it.

What's your favorite part of doing a zine?
The interplay with the readers, both positive and negative.

In my other life, I'm a:
Gerald is a kitchen worker and Linda is a writer and artist.
