60 pages, 8" x 6", $5.00US or 5 Euros >>> Kris, Calvo Sotelo 13B, 4B, Plasencia 10600, Caceres, SPAIN or PayPal to lolalucio [at] gmail [dot] com

This is a 'best of' collection from the six issues Kris published of his zine Chorrada. Lotsa good stuff in here - a visit to a Chamber Pot Museum; short interviews with Ned Brooks [It Goes On The Shelf zine - reminding me I really gotta check this one out!] and Dale Speirs [Opuntia zine]; letter columns; the stories behind a dozen pairs of Kris's shoes; secondhand book scores, a few book reviews, and a bookstore review; Kris's dulcimer obsession; and more. It's really nicely printed with a simple and easy-to-read layout, the only problem I had was with the string binding - it looks good but wasn't practical. The string kept sliding around then the pages did so too, so I stapled it myself. [I really don't know how anybody could live without a long-arm stapler...]

Re: secondhand book scores?
It just means finding a book you like at a secondhand bookstore. You know, "Good score!"

Thanks for the review!
Thanks for the review. Yeah, the string binding didn't work too well. But my long arm stapler wouldn't go through that many pages... After destroying a few copies trying to staple them I turned to the string. -Kris

Re: Thanks for the review!
Hey Kris, my pleasure! I love reviewing zines. Especially good ones, like yours. Also, I'm glad to hear the string was a practical rather than aesthetic decision. I didn't have any trouble stapling your zine with my stapler although I kind of expected it not to work, like yours did.
Cheers!
