From Fancyclopedia 2, ca. 1959
An affiliation of fan publishers, built up by Max Keasler and Bill Venable about 1952. At its height the group included Keasler's Opus (he had folded the eponymic Fanvariety), Venable's Pendulum, Bob Peatrowsky's Mote, Dave English's Fantasias, Nan Gerding's Chigger Patch, Harlan Ellison's SF Bulletin, Ian Macauley's Asfo (ex-Cosmag), Hirschhorn's Tyrann, Browne's Vanations, Nydahl's Vega, Orma McCormick's Starlanes, Mosher's Project Fan Club, Don Susan's The Pit, and John Magnus' SF. Gawd, what a rogue's gallery!

At TASFIC, the group co-presented the play The Demolished Null-A and Now You Don't with the Pittsburgh Science Fiction Association‎.

Club 1952
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!
