APPARATCHIK is the Homo Erectus of fandom, impressive for its development of the symmetrical Acheulean hand-axe and the apparent use of fire, but look more closely -- they kept doing the same thing fo a million years! As one archeologist put it, a period of "unimaginable monotony." 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 nesselrode pie.
