The Fish No. 1

The first issue of this late 1980's Gloucester art zine from the Discordian milieu, which describes itself in this first issue as "sort of a Newsletter/Billboard/Soapbox/ Rant Space and/or Creative Outlet for several groups / non-groups &/or other organizations / Disorganizations such as the 2nd or 3rd Psychic Church of Julie Newmar & Hot Dog Stand, The Correspondence Conspiracy Co-Op, the Chipped Paint Legion of the Church of Wood Island, and the Manchuck Assassination Investigation Machine (MAIM), among others." The zine included comics, much material on assassinations, metaphysics, crime, chaos, etc.

The list of contributors seem to largely be pseudonyms. Gerrit Lansing is thanked in the foreword.

OCLC suggests that no participating institutions hold the periodicals.

Staples rusted, with bumping and creasing to extremities. Very good. Item #31259
