hey hey hey, we are going to be at Weirdo Zine Fest THIS SATURDAY 9th FEBRUARY 2019 in Leeds! it’s gonna be great. and just so you know, we will not be there under the name Vampire Sushi, because i am in the process of changing the name. i mean i’ve changed the social media handles and bought a new domain, and i’m in the process of trying to get the website ready for a proper launch, but i’ve been too busy for the last few weeks (finishing a new zine, sorting out new stock in time for the zine fest, going to canterbury to see & meet miz cracker, general life stuff..) but it’s happening, and i’ll announce it properly as soon as it’s ready to go! but yes, look out for VAMPIRE HAG DISTRO at Weirdo Zine Fest!

9th FEBRUARY 2019 from 12:00-17:00
Room 700, Leeds Central Library, Calverley St, Leeds LS1 3AB

Hello world! Facebook decided to delete the original Weirdo Zine Fest because of what I suspect is targeted reporting so there’s now a new event for this which needs sharing AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE!

Weirdo Zine Fest is a self-publishing fair celebrating DIY cultural production by radical and marginalised people. Preference for tables goes to women, queers, people of colour, disabled people, trans people, fat people, sex workers and anyone who is otherwise marginalised.

This year’s fair will be held in Room 700, Leeds Central Library, between 12 and 5pm. There will be 28 stallholders, selling zines, art and merch.

IT’S OCTOBER TOMORROW! which means it will be vampire sushi distro’s birthday month! we’ll have been open for NINE WHOLE YEARS on october 31st. oh wow.

so to celebrate, we shall be doing a little BIRTHDAY SALE = 10% off all orders with the code SPOOKTOBER until the end of the month. i might also be slipping in some unknown extra treats while we’re at it.


NEW IN STOCK = dirty lesbians, forever incomplete #8, forever incomplete #9, from spice girls to riot grrrls, same heartbeats, different worlds #12, same heartbeats, different worlds #13, scorpio moon #6, the ballad of maxwell demon

i don’t know why it has taken me so long to do this update (i’ve had all the new stock since swindon zine fest) but maybe it’s been because i’m starting to work from home next week and i’ve been busy trying to get the flat ready for this big change? i’ve had to move furniture and make space for another desk from the office for another computer and it’s not been as simple as one would assume, especially when you’re me and some simple tasks are sometimes impossible. and i’m also scared i’m going to turn into a fully fledged hermit when i won’t have to leave the house for work. (maybe you should order zines from me to get me out of the house to the post office, *wink wink nudge nudge*)
