As a thirty plus year veteran of fandom, I can't help but point out that the correct pronunciation of the word 'zine' is zeen, as in magazine. It's actually a short form of the word fanzine.

It is a testament to the difference in our ages (I'm *cough* OLD *cough*!) that you've likely never heard the word used in conversation. ;-)

I've actually heard the pronunciations used interchangeably. I think it's one of those internet words that had an original pronunciation but a secondary one was adapter as people pronounced it as it was spelled rather than how it was originally pronounced. :)

I did actually know that zine was short for fanzine, which came from magazine, but I've always pronounced it "zine" *shrugs* Sorry if it bugged you. :)

Not at all! Just never heard it pronounced that way before.
