Yadda Press is a slash fanzine publisher who produces fanzines both in in e-book and PDF format (on CDs). They've been in publication since 2002.From the publisher's page:
Yadda? Hi, my name is Phoenix Emrys and I'm a writer. I'm also, it could be argued, a few fries short of a Happy Meal. Anyway, with that thought firmly in place, I've been toying with the idea of getting into the zine publishing business for a couple of years now, after a few people asked me when I was going to write a novel and also kindly informed me they'd pay for something with my name on it. Nice to know, but as I didn't have what it would have taken to float the printing costs, embarking into self publishing didn't seem either achievable or even remotely feasible. It was a notion I regretfully shelved.
However, it wouldn't quite go away and I kept thinking about it, and eventually all that thinking resulted in an idea. A way I could indeed, actualize my ambitions and produce a product which, while it is isn't exactly what first comes to mind when you think of a 'zine' - I'm hoping, once you see the inherent advantages in the format, particularly price break wise, you'll embrace this new zine concept as readily. What the hey, nothing ventured, nothing gained, right?
Okay, so what is it already? I'm so glad you asked! Basically, I'm talking a zine on a CD. A zine with all the content you expect, text and graphics, formatted to be printer ready, burned on a CD and shipped to you in a lovely little, inexpensive package. Leaving you the option to enjoy it as is, and take it with you in the much more portable format or....if you want the hard copy experience, you can print it out and have that as well. Your choice. And what's really exciting, all of this is going to cost you a fraction of what you'd normally expect when purchasing a zine. Which I'm hoping will make these zines more accessible for those who want some zine action, but up until now haven't been able to afford them. The price you see for each zine in the catalogue, that's the bottom line. What you see is all you pay, whether you live in North America or Bora Bora. No extra charge for postage - or bandwidth. Everything included. What will you actually be getting? The zine comes to you on a CD-ROM in a Word file plus a PDF file which can be viewed on PC and MAC via Acrobat Reader, free online.Believe me, I'm working very, very hard to make sure you'll be extremely happy with what you get. Not just the stories, but de whole package, the format and the graphics. Lots of pretty, pretty pictures of our lovely boys
