Best of the Net zines available as of May 2001, from a ad in Borders

Best of the Net (also known as "Best of the Net Illustrated" or "BotN") was a series of slash mostly unrelated fanzines published by AMC Press. The series was intended to showcase fan fiction that had previously appeared online in a fanzine with spiral binding, color covers and interior art. The total number published appears to be at least sixteen.

The Good Friend (May 2000) and The Diary Series (February 1999) were at one time planned as a part of the series, but it is unknown if they were, in the end, included.

  2. It appears to have "BOTN IX" on the cover, but this is not actually issue #9, it is issue #10. Perhaps the publisher was counting the two volumes of Nature Series as a single title in the series?
