I made this zone in 2009. Three stories that are officially NOT unpublished that I can’t sell, three poems, two from the 1990s and one original, and Vicki’s illustrations of my stories.

From the introduction:
It felt too guarded, and more than a little paranoid. This comment from a review of “Chicken” in an online writer’s workshop seems like an accidental compliment to me. I’d like to create a new genre called paranoid Horror, not dependent on gore or the supernatural (although those are allowed) but rather on the creepy sensation that the world is a much less friendly, more vicious place than our surface minds suppose from day to day.Why did I put my work in a zine? Some writers fear that any form of self-publishing dooms them in the real world. Well I can’t give into fear; what kind of storyteller would I be if I was afraid let my life become a story?
Being a new writer is hard to explain to people. A zine is like a business card, and less pushy to show than an unpublished novel-length manuscript. How could I have a platform if no one I know has seen what I do?
More Than a Little Paranoid costs $4 plus $1 for postage, envelope, and other complications.
