A Sense Of FAPA is a science fiction fanzine edited by Richard 'Dick' Eney.

A Sense Of FAPA was published August 1962 on the occasion of the 25th anniversary and the 100th mailing of the Fantasy Amateur Press Association, science fiction's longest running Amateur Press Association.

It is 388 pages, and mimeographed on pale blue bond paper. As it was too large for any stapler, this fanzine is strap bound in a plain black folder. Approximately 150 copies were produced.

Richard Eney chose a selection of the best work published during the first quarter century of FAPA's existence. Introductions are by Harry Warner, Jr., Jack Speer and Richard Eney. Contributions include F. Towner Laney's "Oh, Sweet Idiocy!" in its entirety, Jack Speer's "Up to Now, and more", and other writings by Charles Burbee, Dean Grennell (Grue), Joe Kennedy (Vampire), Henry Kuttner, Milton A. Rothman, William Rotsler, Rog Phillips,
