Reviewed, The Taos News New publication touches some interesting bases

27 April 1995
Print issue #5 of majenta was reviewed in
the Taos News.

majenta takes risks with words, pulling them together in ways they clearly hadn’t expected to be pulled. But even when it’s vaguely sophomoric, the magazine succeeds by virtue of attitude.

Reviewed, TapRoot Reviews

Summer & Fall 1993 Two print issues of majenta (#2 and #3) were reviewed in
the periodical TapRoot Reviews.

#2 …includes poems, and a lot of satire. Energetic, crude, and amusing—"Preferred by 40 out of 303 Popes." –Bob Grumman

#3 Subtitled, “for the amusement of the lost girl of april.” Diverse and unique, irresistibly-charged with mythical images, witty enchantments, spell-binding hoaxes, poetry, short stories, sardonic advise, music reviews with a slant, wandering columns, irony, line art, ink blots, odes, a movie review, and (generally) the unexpected. Uncensored but not raunchy. –R.R. Lee Etzwiler
