The Best Of Intentions: The AVOW Anthology

This revised second edition collects selections from Avow #1 – 10 and the complete issues of #11 – 16. Has a new expanded intro, full-bleed pages, and a scrapbook at the end.

288 pages, trade paperback.

“This book is fucking incredible. One of the best zines out there. Necessary in every way.” -Doug Grime, MAXIMUM ROCKNROLL

“Avow is what a personal zine is supposed to be. Keith shows honesty without pretension and can go from stories about being beaten up to personal politics to an interview with Kathleen Hannah seamlessly… It’s rare to read a zine that includes both lighthearted stories and personal examinations of privilege and sexism without being preachy or overbearing… It’s no wonder Avow has been running for so long; reading it is like maintaining a good friendship.” -Lauren Denitzio, THE MEASURE, WORRIERS

“Keith Rosson has become an increasingly visible and influential part of punk rock culture over the last five years… At different times, I have loved and hated Avow, depending on what kind of phase I’m going through. Sometimes the stories shine too bright a light on the ugliness and harsh truth around you. Other times, it’s the most down-to-earth thing you can find to relate to… This anthology represents the first sixteen issues of Avow, and is also one of the first things I show curious people who ask me about zines.” -Lauren Trout, RAZORCAKE

NECKTIES MAKE ME NERVOUS S/T EP

It feels like they’re holding up rich ‘picked first in kickball’ punk rockers at gunpoint with their stripped-down, gritty DIY punk that’s swollen with smarts and well-placed pride in being a societal fuck up, way past the time in life where it’s fashionable. Fans of Crimpshrine and Cleveland Bound Death Sentence take note.

Comes with a double-sided, full-color poster, a record adapter, stickers and a fully-packaged CD-R of the songs.

Price: $6.00

NECKTIES MAKE ME NERVOUS “This Ship Is Fucked” EP

2nd seven-inch from this Portland band that’s been compared to everyone from Pedestrians and Crimpshrine to Cleveland Bound Death Sentence mixed with Palatka, which apparently means they’re simultaneously off-kilter and catchy. It’s dirty punk rock with frayed cuffs and paper-cut abrasions. Dual vocals, lyrics that tackle topics as varied as racism (“Liberty Street”), domestic abuse (“Apartments”) and aging in punk (“Old Tats And Oxygen Masks”) delivered with both venom and thoughtfulness.

Five songs, red or turquoise vinyl.

Price: $5.00

THE MERCY OF THE TIDE

Purchase from Meerkat Press.com, Amazon.com, or your local bookstore!

“Riptide, Oregon, 1983. A sleepy coastal town, where crime usually consists of underage drinking down at a Wolf Point bonfire. But then strange things start happening—a human skeleton is unearthed in a local park and mutilated animals begin appearing, seemingly sacrificed, on the town’s beaches. The Mercy of the Tide follows four people drawn irrevocably together by a recent tragedy as they do their best to reclaim their lives—leading them all to a discovery that will change them and their town forever.”

Keith Rosson paints outside the typical genre lines with his brilliant debut novel. It is a gorgeously written book that merges the sly wonder of magical realism and alternate history with the depth and characterization of literary fiction.

288 pgs, softcover, published by Meerkat Press, 2017.

  • NPR Books | Jason Heller – “Rosson is a talent to be watched, and Riptide is one of the most immersive fictional settings in recent memory.” 
  • The Oregonian – “. . . Rosson’s voice is sure; his characters are vividly, heartbreakingly human in their flaws and foibles and relationships; and his plot rolls relentlessly along, growing ever more nerve-wracking until the final, completely unsettling chapter. ” 
  • Publisher’s Weekly (Starred review) – “A striking novel”
  • Literary Hub – “. . . nothing is what it seems in Riptide, both due to the sources of violence and to the magical realism that Rosson uses with a magically deft touch.”
