The Best of ANZAPA is series of fanzines attempting to present the best work from the Australian and New Zealand Amateur Publishing Association on a year-by-year basis, as well as providing details of mailing contents, membership lists, members' activity and major events in the APA administration (like the 1977 index Anzapa Book). The plan called for 25 yearly issues covering its quarter-century of existence, from 1968 to 1993 (the period is always October to August).

Between 1993 and 1996, volumes were published for the years 1977/78 to 1982/83, numbered as volumes 10 to 15 (but not in chronological order, so the general introduction to the project is found in vol. 12). Perry Middlemiss was editor of all of them, noting that he started with the 1979–80 volume as he was the ANZAPA's co-President during that year.
