Launched in 1959, N’APA is our second-oldest fanzine. For the p six decades, it has been our club APA. APAs are filled with art, comments on other contributors and their writings, fiction, reviews, and more.
Technology has advanced; the basic structure of an APA has not changed. In an Amateur Press Association, each contributor generates her or his own zine, a set of pages as an electronic file. The contributors mail their zines to the Preparer, who puts the zines into order, prepares the Cover and Front Matter pages, and sends the material to the Collator, who converts everything to a PDF, and mails the APA to N3F members. The title “Collator” exists because once upon a time the pages were printed on paper, either by the individual members or by the collator, shipped physically to the Collator’s location, collated by the collator and friends into copies of the issue, and physically shipped to back to the contributors.
