In its brief existence A was unable to carve itself a niche. It invoked some wrath in #1 by suggesting that fantasy was a superior literary form to sf. It sought to publish both, but the emphasis was on Low Fantasy, especially the intrusion or re-enactment of Legend. It attracted good fiction by John Brunner, Ru Emerson, Janet Morris, Larry Niven, Mike Resnick (1942- ), Elizabeth Scarborough, Nancy Springer and Keith Taylor. [MA]
