Just in at The Word is Mark’s new series called The Paruretic. Mark discusses his life dealing with the phobia of paruresis, or the inability to pee in public places. Each issue deals with a different aspect of his life and how his phobia affected it-college, dating, traveling, etc. it’s a GREAT series-well written, funny, sometimes cringeworthy, educational. Pop on over to the store and check them out!
I always am getting new stuff in at the Word and occasionally I even update the website to let you know about it. Here’s a group photo of the four latest residents at the Word. Check out the store for price, availability and description.

While hanging out at Quimby’s last week, Ken and his slick Queens accent talked me into carrying the latest issue of his per-zine The Ken Chronicles. It’s listed up in the shop and you should check it out because is an interesting dude.
Last Sunday was a great day! Not only did I get the chance to escort prolific Zinester Billy McCall and his wife around NYC, we got to hang out at Quimby’s with The owner Steve, Ken from The Ken Chronicles and Bob from The Nitty Gritty Gazette. We finished the 100plus degree day off with some amazing ice cream.
Gearing up for the summer zine season means getting in new zines. Got this guy from Dave in Baltimore. A great zine all about bad roommates. Check it out in the shop.
