postage rates

We just bought a zine called "True Story" (we highly recommend it) from a guy in the midwest. He said he's raising rates a dollar to keep up with postage.

By the way y'all. I have a 7, soon to be 8-year-old son who is looking for someone to swap zines with. He enjoys sharing with girls as much as boys. Let us know if you're interested. His zines are mostly about super powers, scientists and such. I make him use his imagination so you won't get any spiderman or Fantastic Four stories. Write to us at todszine@comcast.net
