Puncture Magazine

Puncture was an independent music magazine founded by Katherine Spielmann and Patty Stirling in 1981. It published 47 issues over the following 20 years, first in San Francisco, then from 1992 in Portland, Oregon. An anthology of work from the magazine will be forthcoming from Verse Chorus Press in 2020, but in the meantime, this site will feature some of the stories that appeared in Puncture over the years.
