I am a big fan of Billy and his perzine PROOF I EXIST. PIE has become one of those publications I will drop all else to devote my undivided attention. Billy’s relaxing and conversational style of writing quickly absorbs me.
Continuing with the flurry of writing, issue #12 is dashed three days after arriving at his new home in Sandia Park, New Mexico! As you would expect, this issue is packed-to-the-gills with the happenings on the trip from Chicago, visiting with Mom, and the page-turning tale of running out of gas! We get tales of searching for a home, followed by the search for a truck, and unpacking. As if this wasn’t enough excitement, the issue closes with a tour of Fred Soll’s Incense factory with a dear friend who happens to be living in nearby Albuquerque, herself! I suggest hunting the pair of these down as a set. “reading these you’ll laugh, be saddened, and probably have a moment or two of frustration.” Perzine at its best. (Posted on 8/12/12)
