Unpaved Road #4 cover

The Unpaved Road was a zine published by Joshua Peck from Tulsa, Oklahoma, U.S.A. Peck also published Sweet Spot, Future Transmission, Kinetoscope and other zines throughout the 1990s and mid-2000s. He currently posts nearly every day on two blogs: CineRobot [1] and Blevins Fotografic [2].

The Unpaved Road consisted mostly of true stories of rural life in Oklahoma and surrounding states with frequent appearances by Peck's grandparents, Benton and Gertrude Blevins. Six issues were published from the late 1996 until 2001. The first three issues were a collaboration with Laura Ballay before Peck became the sole creator. Michelle from Trailer Trash was a contributor to issue #4 which was a theme issue connected to the world of tornadoes. Issue #6 is archived at the Denver Zine Library. Other issues can be found at The Zine Archive and Publishing Project (ZAPP) at Richard Hugo House in Seattle, Washington. Back issues are still available from Peck for a modest mailing fee.
