The relevancy to zines escapes me. Did I miss something? If not, perhaps this could be deleted. InvisibleFriend 23:24, 18 April 2007 (EDT)

Some people prefer to call their zines chapbooks, it's hard sometimes to know where the line is between a one-shot and a chapbook. I guess delete if author hasn't written anything that he/she considers a zine. But we've let a lot of the chapbooks that Tom Hendrickson's added stay. Alan Fall of Autumn 19:05, 27 May 2007 (EDT)

Talk - Spooneye

Tom Hendricks here. I received Spooneye as a zine in a pack of zines from Zine World for me to review, IIRC. I admit it is very unusual - but it is a zine. And as a zine or chapbook it is one of the most impressive and offbeat ones I've ever seen. It is also notable for its high quality and incredible creativity. Just because it is a rule book for a bizarre game and it is a one shot - does not mean it doesn't fit in zinewiki. I encourage you to look at a copy if you can. You'll see that it fits. Chapbooks, for me, are just one time zines. And as long as they are from zinesters and'or part of the zine community I think they fit. I don't think it should be excluded unless you've seen it . I think then you'll agree with me that it fits. Musea 22:46, 27 May 2007 (EDT)

I'll also add this. This was obviously a hand made book - so it wasn't mass produced in any way, and note that there is also a long essay/rant on the author's love for all kinds of card games. Again - check it out before deleting. Musea 22:51, 27 May 2007 (EDT)
