(Did you mean the apazine?)
(1) An Especially Noble Kind of Fan
A practitioner of the highest and noblest form of fanac, especially when associated with compiling and publishing a detailed Index or bibliography. See Collecting. Collectors are trufen and almost by definition mensches. "I might need that someday..."
(2) A Sufferer from a Dread Disease
Someone who has been bitten by the Kolektinbug and develops an obsessive-compulsive disorder that that drives him or her to accumulate large amounts of sf books, fanzines, prozines, sf artwork and/or other materials related to science fiction. Collectors are not necessarily fans, but fans are highly prone to the disease.
Some collectors, especially completists, collect according to a plan -- all the issues of a particular magazine, for example, or all the first editions by their favorite author -- but others just accumulate more and more of their obsessional objects until they have no room to move around in their houses.
