The zine started during the summer of 2006. According to spydr, "It was conceived while hitch hiking from an on-ramp in Springfield Illinois. My travel partner said I should write a zine about what we were doing. So I did."
Conscious Defect - Rondo Of Theft was co-written with Scamma Jake, and is a reworked collection of the older, disorganized, numbered zines - which are now out of print indefinitely. Rondo Of Theft also contains more chapters and stories not previously in the numbered zines.
All official copies of Conscious Defect are created using copy scams. The zine also remains free for anyone ordering directly from spydr.
