Hi Everyone! Well I broke my right hand, which is my dominant, hand this week. Filling orders, printing, folding, stapling and driving to the post office are pretty much impossible. I require help for everything and well I don't wanna overwhelm anyone with the many duties of running this distro. I will likely be casted until October. I am hoping to either be in less pain and acquire the ability to do the aforementioned by early September or find someone to help me with these duties. I'll keep everyone updated as my healing progresses.
Dudes! I just added Cats Hate Cops and Communique from an Ex-Cop by Christopher Dorner (I am totally getting put on a list if I am not already on one.) published by Research and Destroy. If you have not had a chance to check out the distro recently Bros Fall Back, What to Keep and What to Give Away, Gut and Peace is Not Real But the Fight is are also now available! Coming soon Muchacha # 8: Nuestros Cuerpos and Philosophactivism #2.
BRZD has recently re-stocked a bunch of sold out zines and there are still more that need to be rre-stocked. We have mainly been good keeping up with cash flow and restocking but BRZD could definitely use some help re-stocking for the upcoming Portland Zine Symposium. So if you got a few bucks to spare consider helping keep BRZD well stocked, running and supporting zines written by people of color.
Other Updates: Nia King is no longer printing Angry Black White Girl and MXD so they will no longer be in stock.
Ain't Shit, On Struggling #3: Bodies and They Are Here With Us are recent additions to this rapidly growing distro. I couldn't be happier with the zines that I carry and all of the amazing writers I am getting to meet and support!
They Are Here With Us is a zine that I have had in my personal zine collection for many years and feel very strongly about carrying. I printed without permission only because I was unable to get a hold of the creator and contributors. Femicide is still a real problem along the Texas-Mexico border. Please get it and share it!
Coming Soon Skinned Hear Numero Cinco y Skinned Heart Numero Seis! Debuting on tour and available on-line in November!
I will be away from the shop! Any orders placed after today (September 16, 2013) will be shipped after September 27. Thanks for your support and patience!
Welcome to the Brown Recluse Zine Distro website GRAND OPENING!!! This a site dedicated to centering zines written by People of Color. Brown Recluse Zine Distro's goal is to provide one place to find POC zines instead of spending forever on the internet. Learn more about this project in our about us section.
BRZD is sister distro with No Shame Distro, East Coast POC zine distro and partnered with the POC Zine Project. BRZD will soon begin carrying zines archived through POCZP.
I am going on tour with POCZP in October and would like to take the distro on the road with me. If you like what you see and would like to support BRZD please donate here!
