Locus Science Fiction Foundation

The Locus Science Fiction Foundation (LSFF) is a registered nonprofit dedicated to the promotion and preservation of SF, fantasy, and horror which was established by Charlie Brown and was the principle beneficiary of his estate.

Its central activity is the publication of Locus, the Magazine of the Science Fiction & Fantasy Field, and its website Locus Online.

LSFF is also responsible for the annual Locus Awards, first presented in 1971, to recognize excellence in SF and fantasy literature. In addition, the Foundation is responsible for preserving the Locus Collection, a large, historical library of sf materials.
