    Remember it had a good history of the 70's through 90's Anti-Fascist street movement in the UK but also the guy had catty things to say about non-violent runs in with the fash. Also it's interesting to read about both the fascist and AntiFA movements both growing out of the football hooligan culture and given recent events the extreme right wing actually want to be physically assaulted as it paints them as the victims.

    When going through my small zine collection before I moved house I decided that this was the only one I wasn't willing to part with as it's printed like a small booklet.

    I've been reading Michael and Jeff Shaara's Civil War trilogy. I've finished The Killer Angels and Gods and Generals, and I'm about halfway through The Last Full Measure. If any of you are historical fiction fans or American Civil War buffs, I highly recommend these. Heck, even if you're not specifically a fan of this genre and just want something good to read.

    Right now I'm about halfway through Red Seas Under Red Skies, the second book in the (currently ongoing) Gentlemen Bastards series by Scott Lynch.

    I'm really LOVING this series so far. The fictional setting brings to mind the gritty underbelly of Renaissance Italy, with a lot of magic and alchemy woven in. It follows the adventures of Locke Lamora and his gang of conmen, the Gentlemen Bastards. If I was to try and describe the overall tone of these books, I'd say it's like something you would expect if you threw cast of Ocean's Eleven up against the Corleone family from The Godfather. The more serious, grim tones of a dark crime drama are perfectly balanced with a sharp-tongued sense of humor, and Lynch has a way of providing a great deal of information about this breathtaking world and its vibrant cultures without slamming the breaks on the stories he's telling.

    I highly recommend this for anyone looking for a VERY atypical fantasy series.

    Been reading this for the past week, it's a
    pretty fascinating book that was written
    behind the same author of the Jim Henson
    Biography (which is also pretty good).
