Another fun issue by Jess, but for some reason ey created #7 before eir created #6. This time, we are given a lot of information about the impending move to college (MTSU) and eirâ€™s motherâ€™s reaction to that. We are also given a list of a number of the finest Lesbian-charactered novels, of which I only have one (the Rubyfruit Jungle, by Rita Mae Brown). Throughout the magazine we are treated to a number of pictures of Jess, as well as some of eir poetry, which is pretty much like all the other poetry in every single other zine that Iâ€™ve read. Some of the pieces that Jess uses in the magazine are completely off-the-wall, and Iâ€™m not sure whether ey wrote them eirself or found them in old magazine. This is the case with the discussion of the layout of Noahâ€™s Ark, as well as a discussion of where the worldâ€™s best coffee can be found. As with the other issues of Dog In Space, there is some serious discussion about gender â€“ something in which Jess finds eirself as Jess, not as transgender but eirself! By far though, I am not sure whether this zine can be fully enjoyed without talking to Jess eriself or at least checking up on eirâ€™s Livejournal. I find it hard to continually bring up new things about Dog in Space every time that I review it, but really, it is just a fun little read that straddles the line between overbearing seriousness and fun little facts. Check the zine-lists for Jessâ€™ new zine, out sometime soon.
