SINS OF COFFEE - MAIN PAGE
This site is an archive of some of the
material from the printed version of the 13 issues of SINS OF COFFEE,
which were originally published between 1987 and 1996.
HISTORY of SINS OF COFFEE
SINS OF COFFEE, a magazine of melancholy
humours, has been in existence since 1987 when Mordantia Bat, the
editor-in-chief and publisher, grew weary of accumulating rejection
slips from other 'zines that too often said, "Your writing is good,
but it's too weird."
Not understanding what was wrong with weird,
she decided to start her own 'zine. And so it was born.
The first issue was pasted up by hand, using
dot-matrix galleys and some rather
murky art. Most material presently here has appeared previously
in the printed version of SINS OF COFFEE.
Kallisti, who is currently one of Mordantia
Bat's cohorts on Sepulchritude,
was art editor for SINS OF COFFEE during its stint. Kallisti did
all the cover art since Issue #6 as well as many of other pieces
of art for it such as the ones hovering near this paragraph
and Bat's all-time favorite (which is why it's our mascot and logo)
Marat "at rest" in his coffee cup bath.
More of her art can be seen on her site, Chapel
Perilous, which also includes her Sins
of Coffee gallery of art from the old printed issues.
