all-digital Amateur Press Association (APA)
e-APA is an Amateur Press Association primarily for science fiction fans, and is an attempt to bridge the format and style of traditional paper-based APAs with newer digital publishing formats. Each apazine is in Adobe .pdf format.
Distributions are made once each calendar month. Deadline for submitting a fanzine is the first day of the distribution month. The OE compiles the distribution and makes it available as soon as practical (generally on the 2nd), and notifies members by e-mail when the distribution is ready for downloading.
Membership is open to anyone, and there are currently membership slots open. The active roster will consist of no more than 15 members. Members are expected to contribute activity at least once every other distribution. Each fanzine must have a maximum size no larger than 1.5Mb (the equivalent of 12 to 15 pages, depending on content and graphics); there is no minimum size requirement. Fanzines are e-mailed to the OE for inclusion in distributions.
If you're interested, read the e-APA Guidelines PDF (43k) for more details. Distributions are for members only and the ZIP files are password-protected, except where noted below. To join e-APA or to see a sample distribution, contact the OE, Chuck Connor, at [email protected].
Thanks to Bill Burns for providing space and bandwidth for the e-APA distributions.
