Bear Escapes Zine Cover

Be the first to know when my new zine Bear Escapes is available to pre-order!

Bear Escapes is a sweet, weird fairy tale about a dancing bear and an organ-grinding monkey who escape from the circus. Inspired by the Joanna Newsom song "Monkey and Bear."

Bear Escapes will be released as a limited-edition print zine based on the number of people who pre-order. Each zine will be numbered. It's unlikely that I will do a second printing so get your name on the list so you can get one while you can!

Meet Bucket Siler, Zine Maker

Hi there! I'm Bucket Siler. I'm a writer, editor, zine enthusiast, and the founder Santa Fe Zine Fest. Bear Escapes is my ninth self-published zine. My work has also appeared in Atticus Review, Bracken, The Nervous Breakdown, and Storm Cellar, where I won second prize the 2017 Force Majeure Flash Contest.

When I'm not writing or sleeping, I like to wander around my neighborhood, drink tea, play chase-the-string with my fluffy tuxedo cat, and construct needlessly long sentences to get my point across. Originally from the Pacific Northwest, I have lived in New Mexico since 2006.


No, thanks. Just take me to your website.
