An APA devoted primarily to Mythopoeic topics. It was launched in the early 1970s, but ran into problems in the late 70s when an OE gafiated with all the records. Paul S. Ritz attempted to re-start it in 1980-81.
Contributors in the Seventies included Paul S. Ritz, John Leland, Jim Carleton, Laura Ruskin, Randi Weiner, Rayna Alsberg, Christine Gaca, Karen Kieselbach, Harry Andruschak, Pete Presford, Dale Nelson, Brian Bond, and others.
Although nominally devoted to mythopoeic topics, discussion was wide-ranging; a central mailer's contribution to the 61st mailing (Winter 1986), said "Elanor is an APA which tries to discuss fantasy ... centering particularly on the works of J. R. R. Tolkien, C. S. Lewis, and Charles Williams. The very fact that they and it [fantasy] are rarely mentioned does not mean much. No attempt is made to restrict any member from discussing any subject." Noted Tolkien scholar Christina Scull contributed to the 100th mailing (June 1993).
