In 1991, Kyle and Luna Griffith of S/R Press, who were at that time publishing shaman/performance artist Frank Moore's book, Cherotic Magic, suggested that he start a zine. Thus was born The Cherotic Revolutionary (TCR). The name of the zine later morphed into The Cherotic (r)Evolutionary. Here is how Frank described TCR in his first "Frankly Speaking" column in issue 0. The "Frankly Speaking" column appeared at the beginning of each issue. "TCR is a journal of the edge. TCR is an offensive movement or measure, offering alternatives to the fragmentation, isolation, personal helplessness which is actively promoted by the combine of power systems. TCR is anarchical, based on the personal responsibility to reshape reality into a more human, trusting, loving reality, full of fun and pleasure. TCR is not a reaction. It is a magical act of enjoying life. It is a journal of and for people who are doing this magical act. ... we finally have a channel of communications among the personal revolutions ... otherwise known as mutations ... which has always been the main fuel for evolution. Now we magical misfits know we are not alone, that there are others out/in here/there feeling, thinking, trying, doing similar things. This just by itself should speed evolution up." Later he wrote in "Frankly Speaking" for issue #5: "I need to thank the zine community for all the kind reviews of TC(r) over the years. I only wish they would not classify TC(r) as a sex zine. We do have a lot of sex in us. We will never shy away from that.
