|An affiliation of fan publishers, built up by Max Keasler and Bill Venable about 1952. At its height the group included Keasler's Opus (he had folded the eponymic Fanvariety), Venable's Pendulum, Bob Peatrowsky's Mote, Dave English's Fantasias, Nan Gerding's Chigger Patch, Harlan Ellison's SF Bulletin, Ian MacAuley's Asfo (ex-Cosmag), Hirschhorn's Tyrann, Browne's Vanations, Nydahl's Vega, Orma McCormick's Starlanes, Mosher's Project Fan Club, Don Susan's The Pit, and John Magnus' SF. Gawd, what a rogue's gallery!
At TASFIC, the group co-presented the play The Demolished Null-A and Now You Don't with the Pittsburgh Science Fiction Association.
