sfnal adj. 1974 B. D. Arthurs Letter in Alien Critic (#10) Aug. 28/2 β€˜What Happened to Nick Neptune?’ by Dick Lupoff in F&SFβ€”In its own way, this is the worst of the three stories. It has an sfnal element, all right; part of the story takes place after the entire Earth has been reduced to cinders by an alien race and 90% of the Earth’s population has been evacuated to the asteroids. But... this sfnal element has nothing to do with the story! NOTHING! [...] What the story really is, in fact, is faan fiction, dealing with the rabid collectors, the completists, in fandom.
