[[A. Razor]] and Drew Blood collaborated with many other writers and helped each other as much as they could to make the press be as inclusive and dynamic as possible. Drew also published and befriended many other writers and artists who contributed immensely to spreading the words and creations he put together on the D.B.P.L. He published many titles, including those of the writers [[Maureen McNally]], Paul “White Boy” Weinman, [[Oberc]], [[Jodi Hathaway]], [[Alan Catlin]], [[C. P. Neblett]], [[Al Slammer]], [[Anne Wilgure]], [[Mike Cluff]], [[Becky Tatham]], [[Donnie Rose]], [[Michelle Clinton]],[[Erika Schleager]], [[Rafael Carvajal]], [[Tim Shepherd]], [[David Curtis]], [[Max Hoffman]] as well as featuring art from Bob Peck, Dax, Ulla Nilsen, Mark Neville, Anders Nilsen, Rax, Jean Thomas, Jayne Henle and Regi Mentle (who would contribute from inside the Men’s Colony at San Luis Obispo).<br>

With the help of fellow editors, [[Erika Schleager]] and [[Kim Koch]], A. Razor was able to bring Drew Blood out to Minneapolis, MN for a Your Elbow reading at Mayslacks Bar. Razor also was able to read Drew’s poem, "SILENCE=DEATH(a rant)", at the first unveiling of the AIDS quilt in Washington, DC on the capitol mall. Drew befriended and corresponded with [[Mike Gunderloy]] at ''Factsheet 5'', [[Larry-Bob]] from ''[[Holy Titclamps Zine]]'', Diet Popstitute of the Popstitutes, [[Bob Z]] from ''[[Bad Newz]]'' in NYC, as well as [[Al Slammer]] and [[Pig Havoc]] in the UK. He collaborated with [[Regi Mentle]] (Reginald Alsin) through the mail and phone calls and made Regi’s artwork and writing available to the world despite the severe circumstances of Regi’s incarceration for murder. His fierce correspondence was a foundation for so much creativity that had its roots in the early days of punk rock and the voice of youthful rebellion against the massive status quo soul removal machine in this world.<br>

Without Drew Blood's consideration and efforts, [[A. Razor]] would have easily never been published or recognized as a writer today. Here are just some of the A. Razor chapbook titles published by D.B.P.L.<br>
