APPARATCHIK is the fannish equivalent of the Accuworm 2000, a savage electrical device stuck in the ground and activated to bring spineless waxworms to the surface. Amnesty International is said to be investigating their use by whimsical agents of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Ice Fishing. 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 new fez tassel.
