Vol. 1 is happy to announce we’re hopping back on the bandwagon and embracing the exciting mode of publishing called print with the forthcoming publication of the zine, “Sandwich Stories.” Complete with cover artwork from Matt Lubchansky, “Sandwich Stories” is the latest release from our Julius Singer Press, and comes with three stories by writers we like who were all given the instruction to write something about a specific topic. To kick things off we figured we’d pick something everybody loved and told them to write about sandwiches. The result was these three stories:
“Publix Subs and the Suburbs: A Florida Survival Guide” by Rahawa Haile
“Egg and Cheese as Religious Experience” by Jen Vafidis
“RUNZA” by Mairead Case
We will have pre-order starting on June 1st after we take care of a few things that aren’t really worth typing about and this is the first of several Julius Singer Press releases we will be putting out in 2015, followed up by:
“Punk in 1995” will be out in late July and features Mark McCoy’s Charles Bronson tour diaries, Daniel Ralston on Rancid’s And Out Come the Wolves, Maria Sherman on Blink 182’s Cheshire Cat, Jason Diamond on Los Crudos, Jes Skolnik on Slant 6’s Inzombia, and Tobias Carroll on New Jersey basement shows.
“Suburban Stories,” with work by Pilot Viruet, Mikki Halpin, Kevin Nguyen, and a collaboration between Hallie Bateman and Brendan O’Connor (September)
A MasterChef Junior fanzine edited by Jazmine Hughes (October)
And Singer Reader #1, our new journal with works by various writers and artists. (October)
We will have a fancy page and all that stuff coming very soon.
