(Did you mean the Phil Harrell apazine?)

Obsolete slang

From Canadian Fancyclopedia
A seldom used term describing a type of fanzine whose principle characteristic is articles describing aspects of mundane reality in a "grandiose and fantastical" manner. Meant to be applied to zines with articles employing exaggeration for satiric effect, but often loosely applied to any SF fanzine containing a preponderance of non-SF subject matter.
