: What Is AFP?

What Is Alt.Fan.Pratchett

In September 1995, an article, written by Colette Reap, was published in Matrix - the news magazine of the British Science Fiction Association. At that point in time, AFP was less than four years old

Six years later, as AFP's 10th Birthday drew near, Colette was invited, by the L-Space Librarians, to write an update of her original article. At the same time, other afpers were also invited to contribute their definition of the newsgroup.

What follows is not intended to explain AFP from every viewpoint. As will become apparent, a newsgroup is many different things to different people. This is merely a small collection of viewpoints from different afpers.
