(n.) A mundane is someone who is not a fan. ("He is a mundane; they are mundanes.") In this sense it is equivalent to gwai lo, goy or muggle, meaning an outsider, Someone Who is Not One of Us. The term is used for people who are completely outside of the sf community. ("Don't freak out the mundanes. The hotel won't like it.)
