Chris Pepus (Razorcake)
SPB: What is your favorite thing about working with print media?
Pepus: Most of my writing appears on the web, but I still prefer to read, and write for, print. When I get a zine or a book from an independent press via U.S. Mail, the communication feels more direct than if the writing comes via internet firms or digital-platform sellers. Also, unlike digital platforms, the print platform won’t need to be updated every few years. The fewer giant corporations I have to go through to get information, entertainment, or art, the better I like it. I plan on continuing to read print and write for print until Amazon/Facebook/Google creates an army of tiny robots that invades homes and vaporizes books and magazines, along with film, LPs, CDs, DVDs, cassettes, and View-Master reels.
