What's New in the Zone

Here to keep you up-to-date with what's going on inside the zone
(in a sort of lazy, half-assed way).

Mattel Tells Us to Censor Barbie Piece

We got a strongly worded letter from a lawyer representing Mattel, asserting that The Distorted Barbie (published in episode 7) unlawfully dilutes Mattel's Barbie trademark. We don't believe this is so, because Enterzone is noncommercial and because Mark Napier's art is a form of commentary. Enterzone publisher Christian Crumlish is keeping track of this legal dispute in his impromptu The Daily Barbie site.

WSB We Hardly Knew Ye

The creator of Enterzone's namesake (Interzone), William Burroughs, died, last of a troika with Kerouac and Ginsberg. The Net exploded with tributes (links to be added momentarily). I AM DYING, MEESTER?

Administrivia: Deadlines

For people considering submitting to Enterzone, please note the following schedule of submission deadlines..

Episode 13 will be released on December 1, 1997. We are not accepting submissions for episode 13 (that would be unlucky).

Submissions that come in after August 1 will be considered for episode 14, to be released March 1, 1998.
