Finally, something I can answer.  ;-)

> i want to:
>   * kill filenames w/  spaces: e.g.    this\ is\ file.txt

    rm *[\ ]*

    This uses a character class with a space in it '[\ ]'
    surrounded by whatever '*' which zsh understands as
    any file with a space in its name.

    print **/*.h
    This uses the '**/' to tell zsh to glob recursively,
    and the '*.h' says to look for '*.h' while it's at it.
    If you study zsh's globbing, you'll find that it can
    do a lot of the same things the find(1) program can
    To learn about some of zsh's find-like abilities,
    $(man zshexpn) and search for "Glob Qualifiers".
    Glob qualifiers allow you to put an expression in
    parentheses after a glob pattern to make the glob
    more specific.

    For example:

        find . -type d      # find directories only

    can be expressed in zsh as:

        print -l **/*(/)    # (/) means directories only

    I only suggest starting with glob qualifiers, because
    I found it the most interesting (and least intimidating)
    place to start.  To get the whole picture, $(man zshexpn)
    and search for the "FILENAME EXPANSION" section.
