(Did you mean the Science Fiction Advertiser?)


The Science-Fiction Association was first national club in the U.K., founded January 1937; it lasted until 1939 and published a quarterly fanzine, Tomorrow. It was suspended on the outbreak of WW II and did not recover after the War.

From Fancyclopedia 2 ca 1959
The Science-Fiction Association, an organization with HQ in Great Britain which arose in 1937, held three conventions ("annual meetings") each more successful than the last, and went dormant with the outbreak of World War II. (Unlike the BFS, it could not carry on its official business without the members of the Council meeting in person.) The founders and leaders of the SFA were those whom Webster calls First Fandom; some Americans were members.

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!
