The Ring of Fire Anthology is a collection of Russian’s well-known zine that she began making in the ‘90s. Russian writes with passion, urgency, thoughtfulness, and an amazing sense of humor about disability, queerness, sex, body image, health care, and anarchism. Some drawings might make you blush, but you will come away deeply respecting her and this amazing body of work.”                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    – Short Run Fest in Seattle recommended The Ring of Fire Anthology in Bitch Magazine November 5, 2014 in its list of “Six Great Small Press Titles to Seek Out”.

“ET Russian’s work has taken my breath away on more than one occasion. At once deeply thoughtful and bold, political and human, Russian’s work stirs our collective magnificence in service of our liberation. Russian has continuously contributed so much to disability justice work and community and I have no doubt that The Ring of Fire Anthology will do the same.”                     - Mia Mingus, author of Leaving Evidence

The Ring of Fire Anthology is beautiful, sexy, and thought provoking all at the same time. If ever you’ve needed stories, art, poetry, and bad-ass rabble-rousing that connect disability and queerness, sexiness and radical anti-capitalist politics, look no further. ET Russian’s vivid work lives and breathes these connections.”
-Eli Clare, author of Exile and Pride

Ring of Fire is one of the zines that had the most significant impact on my thinking–it totally blew my mind when I encountered it in 2000.  I am thrilled to see gripping material from Ring of Fire combined with insightful, transformative new writing and images about disability justice, health care, art and activism being distributed as a book. A whole new generation of activists will now get to use these materials to reexamine their communities and transform the world. ET Russian’s clarity, honesty and insight is a phenomenal contribution to today’s activists building disability justice tools and frameworks in multiple movements and communities.”                                                                                                                                                                                                               – Dean Spade, author of Normal Life: Administrative Violence, Critical Trans Politics and the Limits of Law
