Edgar Rice Burroughs Amateur Press Association
Welcome to ERBapa
ERBapa 24Amateur 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.

We hope you enjoy your visit to world of ERBapa
