Where Were You?
SFN Products: 014
Where Were You? is a zine, published annually.
Each edition consists of one year of entries from an ongoing
journal dating back to 1992, when I first became interested in the intersection
of mundane life and high-profile death. The project has changed over time,
and today I simply keep notes about “where I was” when I learned
that someone – anyone have heard of, or find interesting, basically
— has died. These notes have gradually evolved into a kind of sporadic,
elliptical diary: a life in deaths.
“Where Were You?” 2010 edition collects
the best entries from that year. Download it for free from Feedbooks.

Regarding past editions, readers have said: “Your
zine is great! And only mildly depressing,” and “Very interesting
… I was bummed that in the end everyone died!” David Shields,
author of Reality Hunger: A Manifesto, calls the Where Were You? series
"Utterly Addictive." And so on.
Some copies of the 2007 and 2008 editions (which
are physical zines) are still available. Inquire here.
The ezine version of the 2009 edition is available here.
