More fully the Sheffield University Union Science Fiction & Fantasy Association, it was a club at Sheffield University in Sheffield, UK which existed for a few years in the early 60s. There was a clubzine, Entropy, but it quickly died.

There were only a few members at first -- too few to fill all the offices and committee positions -- so that Brian Jordan, one of the founders described the club as having "a committee of eight and a membership of one."

After a short life, the club merged with the school's astronomical society and became the Sheffield University Science Fiction and Astronomical Society or Astrosoc.
