      John,

      Are you only interested in printed zines or are you after electronic ones too? Devolution
      and Dane's Games (both email) are still going strong and Will It Lead to Trouble? has made
      an impressive comeback (graphic-rich PDF contact andymansfield@... for a sample
      copy).

      Richard

      P.S. WIMM? is still alive and kicking :-)
