ANTHRO #4 is online!
Quentin 'Cubist' Long here with good (and, hopefully, expected) news: ANTHRO #4 (the March/April issue) is online -- no thanks to the dod-rotted weather we're having these days! The cover by Holly Ann depicts a sentiment that we're sure will bring a smile to quite a few people's faces... Other than that, we've tweaked the zine a bit since last time around. The most obvious change? "In This Issue", a new thingie at the top of the navigation menu. Click on it, and you'll get a comprehensive listing of *everything* in the issue, complete with descriptive blurbs for each item.
As well, we've more than doubled the number of books we're recommending in our "Support" section, from 40 to a total of 87; these books cover a range from Richard Adams (WATERSHIP DOWN), to L. Frank Baum (the OZ books), to K. D. Wentworth (BLACK ON BLACK), and then some! We invite you to browse our "Support" section, and if any of the books strike you as enticing, feel free to click on through to Amazon.com and buy it. A good read will be yours, and ANTHRO will get a bit of cash from Amazon.com -- in other words, everyone benefits! Or if your library is large enough already, why not take a look at ANTHRO's posters and T-shirts? Or you could just make a donation, or even subscribe.
