Bibliographic tools for alternative publications

Byron Anderson, compiler of Alternative Publishers of Books in North America, does an annual update to his “Bibliographic and Web Tools for Alternative Publications,” a helpful resource also published in print in the alternative review journal Counterpoise. This five-page document has listings of review sources from many areas of alternative publishing, including zines and small book publishers. It also covers distributors, awards, reference books, websites, and other tools. It’s handy and succinct and you should download the new update and print it out.
