Empire State Slans

An ersatz club created by Claude Degler in 1943 in New York as part of his Cosmic Circle. It was (supposedly) a state-wide umbrella organization with local groups such as the Slan Slum (which was actually the only one). Larry Shaw was the only real (though probably involuntary) member of either. Otherwise, he populated the clubs by contacting prozine readers using names and addresses culled from their letter columns. It seems to have had no real existence.

This is a club page. Please extend it by adding information about when and where the club met, when and by whom it was founded, how long it was active, notable accomplishments, well-known members, clubzines, any conventions it ran, external links to the club's website, other club pages, etc.

When there's a floreat (Fl.), this indicates the time or times for which we have found evidence that the club existed. This is probably not going to represent the club's full lifetime, so please update it if you can!
