from Xerography Debt #31 Review by Julie Dorn
ToBaR is a compilation of horror fiction, poetry, and artwork. Topics range from vampires, demons, killers and death, to love and loss. Like most comp zines, it’s a mixed bag. Some seem like the beginnings of a story, where the author is still finding their legs. Others are more enjoyable and polished. The same is true for the poetry. Horror is not my genre these days, but I did enjoy most of the zine and the drawings in particular. The price is a bit steep, so it’s really aimed at those who like darker stories. For those who want to branch out and read something new, though, it’s a decent zine within the genre. (Posted on 8/13/12)

Horror stories: can you have enough of them? I’m only asking the question rhetorically, because I already know the answer is a resounding “No!” And so we have TA LES OF BLOOD AND ROSES to sate our cravings for them. As the blurb on the back cover informs us, ‘You’ll never feel safe again!” And why would you, with such entries as ‘What Price This Life?,’ ‘Delectable Delicacy,’ ‘Melancholy Lab Report,’ ‘Vampyricide,’ and ‘Alone.’ Plus fifteen or twenty more. Honestly, I hope we get hit with some kind of awful weather so I can have an excuse to sit down and curl up with this zine. $4.75 is at the pricey end for zines, but this is a professionally printed project, and not too many zines cram 60 pages between their covers.

According to the back cover RAZORCAKE said this zine was “An erotic/horror/goth version of Reader’s Digest” and… yeah, they pretty much did my job for me. It doesn’t have “Humor in Uniform” or “Daffynitions” like Reader’s Digest, but if you’re looking for well written horror stories and poetry along with a list of some horror themed arcade games and even some kinda smutty sexy photos if that’s your kind of thing. And if sexy photos aren’t your thing then you’re weird. People who read zines in general are a tad odd, but a zine reader who isn’t interested in sexy photos… you’re loony tunes, dude. Get help. Horror has never really been my bag, but I always appreciate good writing and I can’t imagine any horror fan who wouldn’t be thrilled by this zine. (Posted on 8/13/12)
