The joey Zone is located more than an hour west of Providence. Zone has done illustration and design for the small presses off and on for the past two and a half decades. This work includes delineating early work by Don Webb, John Shirley, Brian Stableford and others, while also contributing to pre-internet publications such as Factsheet Five and Science Fiction Eye. In 1987, he created the logo "The Reader" for the ongoing literary conference Readercon, as well several subsequent program guide covers. The third World Horror Convention used promotional designs by him in 1993, while two years later Zone began his continuing association with the once and future NecronomiCon Providence, assisting The Lovecraft Arts & Sciences Council by serving as a co-curator of the Ars Necronomica gallery exhibits.
