Defined as "A pamphlet of words, lines, and images," O!!ZONE is way out there. Artwork based on very symbolic, iconographic, pseudo-Olmec/Aztec -geometric-Chicano black-and-white line drawings somewhere between surreal, native, cubistic inspired, which caress the Jungian core. The poetry is very imagistic, sparse, minimalistic, and in one case (Ken Brandon) integrated with the artwork. "Getting laid/has nothing to do with/ Ancient agriculture," chants Jo, one of the poetry contributors. The single short story in this issue reminds me of absurdist drama.--R.R. Lee Etzwiler
