Savage, 1991: 401; emphasis in original) The fanzine (and, after it, the zine) offers a relatively cheap means of communicating. Bob Bellerue, editor of the American zine Basura, in his survey of zine publishing in the US proposes that '[t]he photocopier revolution alone may be the central feature of the current zine explosion' (Bellerue, 1995), and it is noteworthy that during the 1970s and the 1980s alternative publishers increasingly made use of reprographic technologies that made them, if not financially independent, at least technically independent.

It has also featured lengthy articles by homeless people. It is edited entirely by activists, not by professional journalists.

Once again, we can find resonances beyond the immediate genre. An extreme example of ~his may be found not in the zines of the 1980s (which are Duncombe's focus) but from the counter-culture of the 1960s: an issue of the New York underground paper Other Scenes once offered an entirely blank set of pages for readers as a do-it-yourself publishing project (Lewis, 1972).
