Fire As a Metaphor is an essay written by Rich Simpson. This zine is a graphic novel-style presentation of this essay, with art by Mike Taylor, publisher of Scenery zine. It deals with the city of Gainesville, FL, and how the city copes with and has been changed by the fact that it is host to the campus of the University of Florida. I’m not sure, but I get the impression both Simpson and Taylor are alumni of the university. The artwork is interesting, with a lot more depth than it seems at first. The text is a little hard to follow; I had to read several sections twice to get what he was saying. It’s more poetic than your typical essay. Pretty interesting stuff, though. –Brian Mosher (Mike Taylor, PO Box 28226, Providence, RI, 02908)
