Welcome to the world of zines!

There was a time a few years ago when a prevalence of America Online "zines" or online magazines existed, and I was part of what was called: The Zine World which meant that it was cyberspace related and separate from the "real World" or material people and glossy magazines.  We had a group of highly dedicated editors, include those of Backstreet Backpack, Rockstar, and several more.  My  journey began in  1999 and ended in about 2001.  My younger brother is now even creating this own paper magazine.  It must run in the family!

These zines were created though basically text-only processes and were rather creative considering almost no graphics were used - since graphics, at that time, took minutes, instead of seconds, to load, and broadband or cable internet was not yet available.  This website is a showcase of my zines, and a look back in AOL and internet history.
