John’s foray into mail order and ad sheets in the ’80s puzzled many Keel-watchers.  However, his articles weren’t selling, and his attempts at novels and plays were no more successful.  The ad sheets were a way to have a little harmless fun, and maybe pick up a few bucks.  He put out nine issues of “The Big Apple News,” from 1984 to 1986.  It was usually a two-sided sheet, although a couple were four pages.  It contained small ads, usually for other ad sheets, John’s own ads, and a sprinkling of cartoons and clippings.  Here are some representative samples; the article on snakes was one he did for High Times in 1980.
