The Flame of S.F.P.A #14

Apazine created by P.L. (Pamela Lynn) Caruthers-Montgomery (PLCM) as part of mailing #125 (intended for #124) from members of the Southern Fandom Press Alliance. The typed content was created on March 8, 1985.  The main cover was xeroxed on red paper to represent "The Flame" which also referenced Caruthers-Montgomery's red hair and outspoken personality. The primary content is xeroxed on white paper.  

PLCM was awared the Rebel Award later in 1985 with her husband, Larry Montgomery, for contibution they both made as long-term members. She also became president of the Southern Fandom Confederation for 5 years and was a president emeritius after her tenure. PLCM (Caruthers-Montgomery) later "discovered the world of BBSing" (bulletin board systems) and left Fandom. PCLM passed away in August 2003
