Edgar Rice Burroughs
Amateur Press Association
Press Associations are a means to bring together those interested in a
common subject through their regular contributions to a shared publication.
APA members must maintain active participation to remain in good standing.
Memberships in APAs are usually small to keep the publications manageable.
Each member offers a unique perspective which meets few restrictions from
editorial control. Because of the limited membership and the number of
issues published, only a few outsiders are able to see all the hard work
and worthwhile articles put into most APA issues.
ERBapa was founded in 1984 by ERB fan,
John Guidry. He modeled the society after other typical amateur press societies,
seeing the organization as one which would allow ERB fans to share their
“comments, musings, rantings and ravings, fond memories, whatever....”
John decided to limit membership to 36
-- to commemorate the age at which ERB began writing. Members would pay
a nominal membership fee and would then, four times a year, type up a minimum
of two pages of material and send 50 copies to John. He would then collate
and bind the material, and return a copy to each member. Six slots were
set aside for “Honourary Members” (chosen by member vote) which were honoured
for their lifetime commitment to ERB fandom. People on the waitlist had
first option to buy any extra copies.
Our ERBzine APA site has been created
to give Burroughs fans a better idea of this very special organization
for ERB fans and scholars. We have included all the APA cover art from
issue #1, membership information, APA news, searchable contents lists from
the later editions, membership lists -- past and present -- and links to
scores of articles by ERBapa members that have been reprinted in our weekly
online fanzine -- ERBzine.
