When did you launch your zine? What inspired you to do so?
I started MCBF in 1986 to provide a sordid outlet for my more unhealthy obsessions.

Why publish a zine?
Because no one else will do it for me.

Any general tips for aspiring zinesters?
Spring for a saddle stapler, and never try to ride a bus carrying forty pounds of zines. Also remember that no matter how good your zine is, it really sucks and you should try to make it better next time.

What's your favorite part of doing a zine?
Sending the new issue off to the printer.

In my other life, I'm a:
A mild-mannered civil servant.
