Cowan’s Gap zine #4 is now available in store and online at Quimby’s Books in Chicago.

As always, huge thanks to Quimby’s for carrying our zines since issue number one.

I wrote a new short story for Certain Demise, the latest collaborative zine by Team Punchbag.  My story is called “Rail Year”, and it’s alongside a bunch of rad work by other writers and artists, including an illustration by Sammy Owen.

The zine will be available at APE in October, and elsewhere; more info here.

Very big thanks to Team Punchbag for running this really fun project, and for inviting me to participate.
