Thanks to Rainer Joswig for the workaround. If anyone else runs into a similar issue in LispWorks, the fix is

(lw:set-default-character-element-type 'cl:character)

MacOS Mojave, LispWorks Personal Edition
(ql:quickload "zip")
To load "zip":
Load 1 ASDF system:
; Loading "zip"
Error: #\ů is not of type BASE-CHAR.
I don't get this error with Allegro Express 10.1 on MacOS or SBCL 1.2.11
