While everyone is reading issue #8 (you have a copy, right? What?!? you don't? Go to http://www.electricvelocipede.com/shopping.html and order one!) and I'm editing and finalizing issue #9, I have a thing or two to say about the future.
As issue #10 approaches--an impressive milestone to hit in the world of zines--I want to do something special for it. I'm already working on the content. I have a bunch of novelettes that will appear in the issue. One from Rick Bowes & Mark Rich that is excellent, another from Jeffrey Ford (actually a suite of shorter related pieces), and one from Robert Freeman Wexler, the talented author of the wonderful IN SPRINGDALE TOWN and CIRCUS OF THE GRAND DESIGN.
What else could I do that would be special? A color cover? Guest editorial? Guest columnist (from a fairly well-known source)? Any ideas?

Maybe an interview would be good? Interviews are always a great source of interest.
Sounds like you've got lots of ideas as it is, though!
And there are some great writers involved there.

Whatever you do, figure it out quick, before the time slips away. That's what happened with us for the upcoming tenth anniversary issue of TALEBONES.
