In this issue:

Andy Hooper commemorates one of those Apak nights, and shows us that Shakespeare can too be relevant to our times.

Dan Steffan's TAFF report continues with TAFFragment 5 -- Hotel Hansen (The Early Years).

NEW COLUMNIST Ted White reflects on the Shangri-Las, and issues dire warnings about air quality in L.A. Worldcon hotel rooms.

Pam Wells offers us a first-hand account of Farber Day. (Yet Farberware has gone out of business.)

Steve Green tells us how he's cross-pollinating with (or should that be virally recoding) British horror fandom.

Mark Manning favors us with sayings of the Desert Fathers.

Lesley Reece is sentenced to keeping time.

We conclude as always with Andy's Fanzine Countdown.

APPARATCHIK is the Roy Munson of fandom, one-time Iowa State Bowling champion, gifted with almost unlimited potential, all thron away on a quick hustle that ended with an unfortunate ball-return maiming. We here at Apak honor Roy for his never-say-bartime spirit, and the worst comb-over on the Scranton-Wilkes-Barre-Johnstown circuit. 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 a rubbing of Vincent Price's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

For readers in the United Kingdom, Martin Tudor will accept #10.00 for an annual subscription, #19.37 for a lifetime sub, from 24 Ravensbourne Grove, Off Clarke's Lane, Willenhall, West Midlands, WV13 1HX, UK. Australian readers can subscribe through Irwin Hirsh, 26 Jessamine Ave. East Prahran, Victoria 3181 Australia, for $4.50, $17.00 and $28.09 Australian.

He seems to have fought his way through his own coldness on the strength of a vast self-revulsion.
