Calgary zines dispensed by refurbished
vending machines

Zine Machine uses repurposed vending machines installed around Calgary by a small press called Small Ghosts and dispensing independent 'zines. For instance, one is on Shelf Life Books (see above) where four quarters will get you a zine or a chapbook.(That machine is #2; #1 is in the shop, so to speak, getting new stickers while Small Ghosts looks for a new place to install it.)
It's not the first such venture we've heard of, but likely the very first in Calgary. (The Toronto Poetry Vendors dispense poetry chapbooks from their refurbished gum machines.)
[Thanks to AMPA for letting us know about this quirky and interesting venture.]
