This zine has been in the works forever, but this month I was finally well enough and under sufficient time pressure to buckle down and get it made. Back in October 2010, Nicky Wire of Manic Street Preachers very kindly did a questionnaire for me, and I wanted the zine it would feature in to be ready in time for the band's mini-tour in May, so that I'd be able to give Nicky a copy on the first of the two dates I planned to attend.
Just over two weeks of six-hour alternating work and sleep shifts paid off - I had a zine ready to hand over along with a bag of presents in time for the Llandudno gig on the 18th. When I saw Nicky again after the Wolverhampton gig the next day, he told me the zine 'great' - praise that made my knees rather wobbly!
Awaiting An Epiphany #1 is a 28-page, half-size, black and white photocopied zine with a full colour cover, bound with copper staples. It features pieces about running around after the Manics, trying to raise awareness about M.E. through the local press, extinct animals/the environment, other zines, and an irate eastern European rabbit - as well Nicky's ~exclusive~ questionnaire interview.
You can buy yourself a copy from my Etsy shop for £1 plus postage.
