Quitter: Good Luck Not Dying, a pocket-size book collection of Trace Ramsey’s excellent Quitter zine. What do you do when you realize the whole system is chock full of faulty wiring and institutionalized myths? Do you stay behind that desk (whether metaphorical or literal) and burrow into the security of “living in the first world” or do you throw yourself into the wilds? Sometimes it’s not so black and white, and sometimes “cutting ties” requires a privilege and skill-set we don’t have. 

In this anthology of Quitter issues 1-6, we see Ramsey battling fear and freedom, history and an uncertain future. There are no hard and fast answers; nothing set in stone besides the guarantee of chaos and troubled waters ahead. Over the course of 64 pages, Trace struggles through life, winning and failing, looking for a better path but not always finding it. 

A deeply honest narrative on struggling to break the binds that hold us down, Quitter: Good Luck Not Dying is a devastating, thrilling read; a beautifully written examination of the frustrations and pitfalls of life in the current age.

Praise for Quitter:

“Truthful and devastating, Trace Ramsey’s Quitter: Good Luck Not Dying is a burning coal and a lighthouse, a haunted past and an open door. This brutal, elegant little book will shake your floorboards and rafters until the whole place comes crashing down.” –Do-It-Yourself Guide to Fighting the Big Motherfuckin’ Sad author Adam Gnade on Quitter: Good Luck Not Dying

“This is the sort of zine, the sort of writing that smacks you in the face. These stories will hollow you out. I’d compare Trace’s style a bit to Flannery O’Connor’s, in that neither one of them romanticizes anything, softens anything, and their takes on life are completely unsentimental.” -Rust Belt Jessie on Quitter #7

“It’s been awhile since I have read such a well-written zine. Reading Quitter #7 was a real breath of fresh air. I appreciate most zines, but I find myself reading them once then storing them away. Not this one, though. As soon as I finished it I wanted to start it again. So good. Do yourself a favor, pick up a copy of Quitter today.” -Dakota Floyd on Quitter #7

“This is a good-looking zine, a class act.” -Lily Pepper on Quitter #7


“The subject matter is intimate and stark. With precision word-smithing, Trace ventures into parts of the emotional landscape we normally avoid, and engages us by tapping the common well of humanity with an unflinching examination of his personal experience. Inspirational.” –Zine World on Quitter #4
