The Elephant's Graveyard
Another name, and a generally fond one, for the Fantasy Amateur Press Association (FAPA), fandom's oldest apa. As probably the most prestigious apa in the microcosm, and the one with minimum activity requirements that are at or near the lowest (eight pages a year), FAPA tends to be the place where old semi-gafiated fans go to "retire" – or, as one wag put it, where the microcosm's old elephants go to die, since it's fairly easy to drag the process out, hanging on for years, just in case they might change their minds and decide to get active again.
