E. War is a Canadian east coast zine making collective since 1998.

They began photocopying in high school, starting with the monthly sheet the voice containing lists,stories, poetry,rants, and art of stoned friends. After a short hiatus during post secondary education, they picked the pen back up in 2001 to publish Free the Leeches. FTL was created as a protest of a sinking relationship that turned into a personal expressive art zine. FTL ran for 6 issues and then died unceremoniously. Fag Punk reared is sexy head in 2003 when e.war discovered adobe indesign. That which started out as a joke and practice piece became a fluid entity in which e.war could finally express their sexually explicit lifestyle with justification. In its seventh issue and still layed out digitally FP continues on. A chunk of one offs dot the landscape of e.war's zining, including; Empty and Fold (Dec 2005),a one off containing personal photos and stories; Evidence:a mix tape of paper (Feb 2009) a paper trail of evidence to the life; Herbal and Radical Remedies (summer 2007), e.war's intro into herbal medicine, including a personal experience with poison ivy.

E.war is now drinking their self into oblivion and still publishing Fag Punk when ever there is enough content to be exploited.

E.war now lives in S. Ontario, Canada, and is the founder of Liber Libri Hamilton Zine Library and running the "look mum!" distro.
