Johns Hopkins Science Fiction Association

The Johns Hopkins Science Fiction Association is commonly known as HOPSFA. It has existed more-or-less continuously since the early 70s, though its activity has undergone major swings as members graduated. For a time in the late 70s it was associated with the Amber Society.

It published two filk collections, the Minihymnal for Balticon 9 and the larger HOPSFA Hymnal and sponsored Hopcon.

It's clubzine is the HopSFanatic founded in November 1974.

It has run two conventions over the years: HopCon and currently runs JohnCon, a gaming convention.

This is a club page. Please extend it by adding information about when and where the club met, how long it was active, notable accomplishments, well-known members, club fanzines, 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!
