A Zine About Billy

A Zine About Billy

by Daniel McCloskey

This is the story of a story. Danny had been absently writing a fiction story throughout his teen years. He'd toyed with the idea of devoting himself wholly to it, but always found ways to put it off. When he lost another friend to suicide, he decided it was time he commit himself to writing again. This is a personal story about loss and grieving, and how through emotional alchemy, Danny turned those feelings into the Cyberpunk Apocalypse, a communal arts space in Pittsburgh.
