A compilation of the first nine issues of the author’s sporadically published and widely acclaimed personal zine, this volume reflects the do-it-yourself attitude of the 1990s punk music scene and includes humorous anecdotes, philosophical musings, and nuanced descriptions of odd locales and curious characters, all of which were taken mostly from outside of the punk milieu. This new release of a cult classic shows the far reaching influence of self-publishing with contemporary popular indie culture and bridges the gap between sub-culture and the world at large.

""Burn Collector" is best read aloud, alone, line by line as each piece's train wreck unfolds. Al's shrugging, self-deprecating tales camouflage a truly hopeful and humanizing perspective, and are as biting and relevant as they are unassuming." --Nate Powell, author, "Swallow Me Whole" ""Burn Collector" pairs existential dread with rapacious wit." --Jessica Hopper, "Punk Planet" zine "Al would probably deny it, but reading these stories again it's quite clear that he was the voice of a generation." --Dan Sinker, founder, "Punk Planet" zine Al would probably deny it, but reading these stories again it's quite clear that he was the voice of a generation.

Nate Powell, author, "Swallow Me Whole"" "Ridiculously entertaining autobiographical accounts of [Burian's] travels and living situations in various metropolitan burgs across America." Creative Loafing" "Al Burian's name invariably comes up in every list of great zines. And there's no question why, really -- he's one of the most talented writers ever to sit down and bang out a zine." www.BoingBoing.net"
