A Brief History of Evasion Evasion came into the world as a 106 page full-size photocopied zine. With under fifty copies made by the author, the zine was destined for obscurity until rescued from a stack of zines in someone's bathroom by a band in the midst of their summer tour. Copies were made and given to friends, and so on and so forth, and now, a few years later, there are about 2,000 copies in existence (that's our best guess at least)—circulated entirely by the will to share an amazing and inspiring text with friends.

Evasion was later turned into a book, published by Crimethinc. There were plans for a second book.

The author, known only as Mack, also wrote columns for Heartattack. Also Heartattack #39, features an interview with Mack where he replies to criticisms of his zine, ironically "controversial" in the political punk scene.

Evasion's topics focus mainly on adventures, avoiding unemployment, scams, etc. through a first person narrative.
