Tagged: Community | Fan

Known usually by its acronym, the Offtrail Magazine Publishers Association (1954-1978 or 1979) was an APA formed in the UK by Kenneth Bulmer, A Vincent Clarke and Chuck Harris. OMPA was modelled on FAPA, and was founded to facilitate distribution of Fanzines published by and for members. Early contributors included John Brunner and Michael Moorcock. Uniquely for an APA, OMPA once organized a national convention, Ompacon, the 1973 UK Eastercon. [PR/RH]
