From Fancyclopedia 2 ca 1959
The Atlanta, GA SF Organization, whose wheels were various Dixie fans like Macauley, Burwell, and others. In full swing by July 1951, they accomplished a notable feat of fan publishing by getting out a hard-cover edition of Sam Moskowitz's The Immortal Storm.

Members included Jerry Page, Hank Reinhardt and Jerry Burge.

The 1960s–70s Club[edit]

In the late 1960s and early 1970s Atlanta fandom started to bloom again. A new incarnation under the name ASFO II was born. Glen Brock, John Ulrich, Allen Greenfield, Steve Hughes, Joe Celko and others were responsible.

The 1980s Club[edit]

There was a revived club by that name — it was not the Atlanta Science Fiction Club — apparently organized by Irv Koch. Fl. 1982. It pubbed ASFOAWN.

The Clubzine[edit]

As well as the clubzine Science Fiction Digest, ASFO published an Official Organ of the same name, previously Cosmag, edited by Ian Macauley.
