Sacramento Area Super Science and Fantasy Reading and Study Society

A club founded in 1971 in the Sacramento, CA area. Its formal name was picked for its acronym, SASSAFRASS, and it was also known as the Sacramento Science Fiction Society. It sponsored Condome I. Its said of itself: "Membership requirements: an interest in science fiction and an ability to tolerate drinking of beer all around you, and the smoking of tobacco and grass." This evidently did not end well, as Avalon, another Sacramento club, later prohibited alcohol at its meetings "to prevent a repeat of Sassafrass." Fl. 1971-1979.

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!
