Publisher Comments:

Shawn Granton (Ten Foot Rule) and Nate Beaty (Brainfag Comics) edited a really comprehensive guide of things to do in Portland, OR. Features tons of information on various neighborhoods, bridges, eateries, hangouts, bars, places that sell zines, and how to navigate through Portland. A crucial resource for those visiting the city or those that have lived here for years. Also includes great line drawings by Nathan Beaty, Chris Larson, Tim Root, Dylan Williams, Chris Cilla, Carolyn Main, Malady, Khris Soden, and more!

Review:

"Longtime residents and visitors alike will love The Zinester's Guide to Portland. The once 16-page pamphlet is now a 128-page book on its fourth edition, loaded with gems on how to have a cheap and amusing time in the Rose City (a.k.a. Bridge City or Stumptown). After a brief history of the city's founding (it involves two men in canoe), you'll find helpful transportation advice and a breakdown of the city's offerings by location. Its exhaustive listings boast everything from arboretums to sex shops, vegan doughnuts to free museum passes, and dollar Pabst to the Mudeye Puppet Company. My favorite entry was for The Vern/Hanigan's, which directs visitors to 'look for the TAVERN sign with the 'T' and the 'A' burnt out.' The subtle charm and nuances will leave you wishing there were guides like this for every city." Utne Reader, Elizabeth Ryan

I haven't read the book either, although it seems familiar, when I was there in Portland and Powell's Books four years ago in 2004, I think that I had bought an earlier version of the book... what's wrong with the name..? Nothing, it's very informative in my opinion.. maybe I'll buy the updated version when I'm there again this weekencd..! Call myself Portland_pilgrim since I'm traveling there soon... see ya!

I have not yet read this, but will. The title, however, upon my initial glance, was such a turn off that I almost did not go on to read about the book. Think you'd grab more readers without such a cliquish title.
