Special Plans For FAPA’s 80th Birthday

Steven and Vicki Ogden write:


The next mailing of FAPA (Fantasy Amateur Press Association) will mark the 80th year of FAPA (Aug 1937 to Aug 2017) and we intend to do something special by inviting all members past and present to contribute something and include some historical musings about their time in FAPA or Science Fiction/Fantasy fandom in general.

Anything you can provide will be appreciated! If you want to send us an email or mail us something (one copy will be sufficient) or post something on the Facebook page we’ll include it in the mailing. Anything and everything will be accepted for this one special occasion (text, art, reprints of old articles or stuff). This is an important milestone and we’d like as many people as possible to voice their sentiments about FAPA, their involvement with science fiction fandom in general or any aspect of science fiction that touched their lives. Please note that we go to press Aug 12, 2017, so all submissions need to be in my hand before that date.

Please help in this endeavor by forwarding this invitation to past members you may know that might be interested in participating. Thank you so much for your participation!

If you are not currently a member of FAPA, I can’t promise you’ll get a copy of FAPA (unless someone wants to become a member of FAPA, which I would LOVE to happen!), but Vicki and I are planning on putting together our own personal contribution with all of the folk’s contributions and I could provide a copy of that if someone wants one.

The Facebook page is called “FAPA — SF Fandom’s Oldest Apa” and is accessed at https://www.facebook.com/groups/409930185866875/
