From Fancyclopedia 2 ca 1959
House-name for publishing enterprises of Dean A. Grennell -- taken in jest from Redd Boggs' Gafia Press, not a reference to mimeographers' hands. Both the original and parody are initialese; gafia is defined earlier in this volume, and Mafia is from "Morte alla Francia Italia anela!"> ["Death to the French is Italy's cry!"], a slogan used by the Sicilians in their rebellion against the French Angevins whom the popes had called in to replace the Hohenstaufen monarchs of southern Italy about 1282. Bet they never expected to be of interest to fandom.
