In the vein of the classic Soy Not Oi cookbook, Please Don't Feed The Bears compiles three issues of the previously self-published vegan cook zine with a range of tasty and simple animal-free dishes. The collection finally makes available these long-obscure fanzines originally published in the mid 1990s. Here you'll find incredible recipes for stews, soups, sauces, noodle and bean dishes, baked entrees, deserts and more! There is also a fair smattering of new material bringing this to a whopping 160 pages of deliciousness! In the spirit of Soy Not Oi, these recipes are written to be simple, straightforward, and perfect for the newest convert to the vegan revolution! But far from bring just a vegan cookbook, Please Don't Feed The Bears reads as a look into vegan lifestyle and underground culture. The book is thoroughly illustrated with eye-catching drawings and clearly laid-out graphics. In addition, the book also includes assorted rantings about music and the politics of leading a vegan lifestyle. Together the book provides easy-to-make and delectable recipes while reflecting the DIY punk rock sensibility of zine culture.

Absjorn Intonsus provides relief work for people living with AIDS. He lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
By a Book Depository customer 10 Dec 2008
"When my book arrived and I opened it, I was so confused by the mess and couldn't quite figure out if it was actually organised/arranged in some way... it's set up like a notebook/zine and there's loads of sketches, handwriting, quotes, music suggestions etc. Every time you flip through it, you'll find something new.
Now onto the actual content of the book... if you love heat/spice, there's some BRILLIANT recipes in here. It's full of hearty winter foods (lots of BEANS, yay!!!) ... all the kind of stuff I'd cook if I were a mum. It's not the boring, light, "rabbit food" you get as "the only vegan option at a restaurant", if you know what I mean.
There's also some excellent sauce recipes and what I would affectionately refer to as "ethnic" food - the most delicious cuisine on the planet... food that isn't "Western". You'll find tons of Mexican, Middle Eastern, African, Asian & European inspired dishes.
The book has a very punk/metal feel to it and anyone even a little "alternative' could most definitely identify with lots of the quotes/music/humour in it. If you can handle working your way through the scribble and mess, the book is well worth your time & money.
"From the first page of this cookbook, I could tell Abjorn Intonsus and I would get along well: Everything in this cookbook is anti-copyrighted. For, even though our choices in how we eat and consume music clearly differ, I believe our values align in more than one other way. All the same, I was ready to learn. And learn I did. Extensive notes on ingredients and preparation methods adorn the book, which, for a kitchen clod like me, work out very nicely. From soups & sauces, to how not to handle a habanero pepper, to main dishes that I'm going to begin incorporating into my extremely thin selection, nearly every instruction is easy and appealing to "cooks" of any skill level. I'll be making a lot of peanut butter sauces for myself in the coming days, as well as adding tofu to my dishes more confidently. It's times like these when I am glad that I have culinarily-inclined housemates and inspiring books like this to help me kick the Ramen diet. I truly am excited to claim this as my first useful cookbook." --"Indie Street"
