Fanzine Countdown, Extended Edition, by Andy Hooper.
APPARATCHIK is a ritual cicatrice on the face of fandom, formed by sliding peppercorns under the skin, then positioning driver ants so that their mandibles clamp down on either side of the incision. The ants' heads are then cut off, forming a natural suture. Does this explain the way it makes you feel? Apak is still available for the usual, but note that trades must be sent to all three editors. 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 daring foray into American neo-realism.
