The issues of Frost Zone Zine have some free content, to read online, and are available for purchase in eBook (and print for the first 4 issues) formats.
PRINT: For the sake of convenience, print copies were POD (print-on-demand) paperback books (not magazines) through Amazon. Some authors wanted print copies and the print-on-demand, companion books, were the best way. Small print runs have been ordered, and it was determined the cost, time to receive the order, and then having the task of distribution is not currently practical, while maintaining a quarterly publication schedule – especially now that deliveries everywhere have slowed down.
Print copies are digest size: 5.5″ x 8.5″, i.e. small and thin, in the tradition of some anthology magazines post-pulp-era and pre-2000’s.
After issue 4, which represents one full year of print digest issues, the digest books will be discontinued. Issue 5 will be a digital publication.
Published quarterly, the first issue was published on September 08, 2020. The second issue was published on December 08, 2020. The third issue was published on March 01, 2021. Issue four was published on May 21, 2021
