OYB Back Issues: New to You!
July 10, 2005
Back issues are available here on this page cheap! --- $2 to $5 ea (postpaid), depending on weight. Scroll down to see quicky-indexes below. Paper issues have tons of stories not at this website. (And verse vicea.) I must say, these are amazing zines. I had wonderful layout and editorial help over the years. To show what I mean, I scanned the covers (below) and some sample spreads.
To order an issue, click on the PayPal button just below its description! (*Non-US orders see info at bottom.)
*Issue #10: SOLD OUT. 82 pages. Dang.
*Issue #9: A massive critter. Here's the complete Table of Contents to whet your whistle. This tasty item is packed with art and photos. At 72 pages, it's a general interest magazine with nonfiction magazine articles about a wide range of culture (well, with lots of outdoor action) and I wrote the whole dang thing. So it's also what's called a Perzine. It's the only general interest perzine with a wide range of indy biz ads that I've ever heard of. It's like an issue of Esquire... written by one person...only it's good. : )
If you want #9 right now, it's very scarce and $5 and here's the button...
And here's what went down...

#10 ...$5... Huge! 82 pages! BUT IT'S SOLD OUT! Rats! OK, I'll get some more printed up. I like having them around. It has a color cover! It's half catalog, half zeen, with stories on: backdoor marathons, unsung bike heroes, literary activism, cosmic questing and cheap house building! Plus much more!
#11... Is a full-color 8-page catazeen with a short story kicking off each OYB topic category and a dozen nifty, hard-to-find books, mags and other products for each category as well. I pack it in for free with order boxes or charge $1 to mail you one.
#12... Someday! Hopefully soon! I think it'll be 7" x 8.5" -- legal sheets folded in half. Full color. And, like, 28 pages. More and longer stories. More products with bigger pics. ...Getting closer to Patagonia, eh? It'll be free with orders or...$3 mailed!
Or... Buy back-issues 1-8 in one volume!
The OYB Anthology: Issues 1-8 is a massive 8.5x11" book, 200 pages, paperback: $20.
