I can tell you that in former lives, you were a Mennonite preacher in a frontier town, and then an officer in the Prussian army. Please tell me how these experiences subconsciously shaped your current life.
Preaching fire and brimstone on the prairie has prepared me for my current task of ministering to the posing Somdomites of San Francisco. However, my past life as a Prussian officer has caused a retrograde relapse into slovenliness and lack of discipline.
Larry Bob recently published the special ten year anniversary issue of Holy Titclamps -- although by the time it came out it was getting on more like 11 or 12 years.
The Zine and E-Zine Resource Guide has collected a good number of interesting essays about all aspects of zine-making. Larry-Bob is quoted extensively in "The History and Characteristics of Zines" by Fred Wright.
A short story by Larry-Bob appeared in the 1992 anthology Discontents: New Queer Writers, edited by Dennis Cooper [Scott Heim, David Sedaris, G.B. Jones, and Vaginal Davis are among the other writers included].
