Tim Hinely is a great American whom I’ve known for a while, though I believe we’ve only clinked glasses together a couple of times, and never since the 1990s when he lived in the SF Bay Area (if Santa Rosa counts).
Tim’s been doing DAGGER fanzine since I was a teen and perhaps even before you were born. He’s just put out issue #46. It’s good (a fairly quick newsletter-style read, but good). You can get it from him for a few stamps or even a dollar. Learn more here.
