Hello and welcome to the Air in the Paragraph Line archive.
This contains free online copies of each issue of the zine.
These are books published by Lulu press, with
a color cover and perfect binding.

absolutely no crappy music reviews. (pdf - 705K)
Digest-sized booklet issues with writing from lots of others besides
just me. The following include textfiles of the articles in each
issue. Since the text versions don't have layout or pretty
pictures, they're not as good as the real thing, but they're easier to
read. There are also PDF versions. Note that I didn't have some
fonts, so some PDF text looks slightly different than the originals.
#8 and #9 PDF are paginated weird because that's how I got the
double-sided books. If you want to print them, print just the odd
pages, then load the copies back in the printer face-up and print the
even pages in reverse order. Trust me, it's a pretty cool hack, but
it makes things weird to read on-screen.

Konrath, Ray Miller, Larry Falli, Greggory Moore, Laura Barcella,
Jennifer Wagner, Chicago Basil, Derek Raugh, Daniel Crocker, SiD, and
J. W. Fail, including three dream journals and tales about drunken
parties, the Chicago Cubs, a war against Iraq, walking home drunk,

Memphis, Amherst, Fullerton, Eugene, Pittsburgh, and more. (html/text) (pdf - 430K)

depression, hitchhiking, mania, insanity, loud music, Houston,
Pittsburgh, Seattle, the future, the past, Indian food, Nuclear
Winter, and more. (html/text) (pdf - 547K)
These were monthly issues that were small, frequent, and
designed to be mailed with one stamp.
Various attempts at hanging on without
going on hiatus, which I did after #5. These suck,
and you really don't want to read them, but I'm being a completist here.
- Issue 6 - August, 1996. The
Minimalist issue; this isn't a real issue, just an update I hand-wrote
and mailed to some faithful subscribers.
- Issue 7 - September 1996. An
