it focuses on three topics: the death of my father five years ago, my experience going back to ohio to deal with the death stuff (there was no funeral & the alternative wake/death rituals we held are explained in the zine), the complicated nature of my relationship with him & the rest of my immediate faily both before & after his death, & how those relationships have deteriorated even further in the ensuing years- some of my philosophies borne of my fifteen-plus years involved in zine culture, the political nature of my attraction to the zine medium, & potentially helpful writing advice for those individuals who enjoy that type of thing- & my misdiagnosis of bipolar disorder, how the label affected my mental health, my experiences with psych meds, how i became undiagnosed, some of my mental health coping strategies, & criticisms of both traditional & non-traditional mental health management.

these stories, which i attempted to inter-weave to a certain degree, into a sort of narrative structure reflecting my own personal trajectory in the last five years, are book-ended by letters both to & from sea monsters about my reluctance to make another zine & some witty criticisms of my own writing. there are also book & zine recommendations.

everything is laid out using a typewriter with pretty small font, & i tried to do a nice, clean, text-heavy layout that still captures the eye & doesnt overwhelm. i am learning the value of white space! the covers are printed on colored paper & each zine is blockprinted by hand on the front & back covers--sea monster tentacles holding a bottle on the front cover, & a tentacle holding a letter on the back.

heavy stuff, but i think it came out well.
