Gibbering Madness was a UK zine edited by Evan from Sheffield, South Yorkshire, UK in the 1990's.
Gibbering Madness started out as a horror and weird literature zine. The first issue featured writers such as Clark Ashton Smith and Brian Lumley. Evan sets out his philosophy in the first issue's editorial:
The reasons I've decided to start this magazine are:
1) I think the prices of books and magazines are absolutely horrendous.
2) It's the sort of magazine I would buy.
3) I want it to be a platform for anyone who wants to see their work in print. whether it's short stories, poems, articles/ comments/ letters on anything you like to do with horror/ weird art, fiction, films or things. Basically, you send it to me and I'll print it. The magazine is accessible to everyone and anyone - as you will see in this issue, there are things by people of all ages.
As it progressed, it integrated more DIY, punk orientated material, focusing on the creative non-music side of punk, Mail-art, weirdness, plus personal thoughts and columns. There were 8 issues in total. The editor Evan was in various D.I.Y. punk and hardcore bands including Avaricious and The Great Refusal.
