Fanzine Countdown, Extended Edition, by Andy Hooper.
APPARATCHIK is the Steve Trout of fandom, a pitcher of middling ability who has not played in the majors since 1990, and is attempting a comeback at age 39. Someone needs to point out to Mr. Trout what a difficult task he has set for himself -- after all, this is baseball we're talking about, not boxing. Apak is still available for the usual, but note that trades must be sent to both Andy and Victor (carl just wants the good ones, sent care of Andy), and/or you can get Apparatchik for $3.00 for a 3 month supply, or a year's worth for $12.00 or a lifetime subscription for $19.73, or in exchange for turdocken. Is Richard Brandt still on the phone?
