Somnambulist Zine


via Somnambulist Zine by martha grover on 4/6/08
Somnambulist #9: A nicely organized perzine from Portland. Naturally, each
story found here draws directly from the personal experiences of its
respective authors, but does so in a fresh and inventive way. Publisher
Martha Grover provides most of the material and uses her cheese-selling
grocery gig as a basis for her work. Grover's an ace in creative writing
and her use of visuals is stunning. If you like introspective literature
you should check this out. [:25] –Chris Manic •••SECOND OPINION: Stories
about going to the doctor and the dentist, if evolution works so well why
are there still ugly people, a conversation with Peter Bauer (who opted
for a hunter-gatherer lifestyle), and a couple others. Mildly
entertaining. Martha Grover, PO Box 14871, Portland OR 97293,
