Zinosaur (sometimes zine-o-saur) is a term for a long-time fan of printed, dead tree zines. It is most often used by older fans in an affectionate way.

Examples of Use

From a site selling used zines: "Used zines are not eligible for return or refund. First, we've had too many from The Entitlement Generation who seem to think it's okay to order a zine, read it, then return it for a full refund. Sorry - nobody owes you anything for free. Last thing I got for free took a cycle of antibiotics to get rid of. We are old and grumpy. We are zine-o-saurs... hear us roar." [1]
