Deadline
from Fancyclopedia 2 ca. 1959
The time after which no material is accepted for an APA mailing. Same after which no material is accepted for a given issue of a fanzine, hahahahaha. Deadlines mean little with fanzines, which almost invariably come out later than originally scheduled anyway; but in FAPA a long, and on the whole successful, fight has been waged to get the mailings out on the dates specified. For some particulars, see Blitzkrieg.
