The Factsheet Five Zine Reader
The Factsheet Five Zine Reader was a book compiled by R. Seth Friedman and published June 24, 1997 on Three Rivers Press. The book is comprised of an intro by Friedman, a mammoth list of zine resources and information, and zine summaries and excerpts from 73 zines. It hit the mainstream at the peak of their interest in zines and helped bring Factsheet Five and a handful of other zines into national prominence until the wave of attention passed.
