A club for fans of Conan and other fantasy heroes. Amra was the club fmz. Until some time in the 80s there was a muster of the Hyborian Legion -- a big discussion group in a room somewhere -- at every Worldcon. Regulars included L. Sprague de Camp, Poul Anderson, Fritz Leiber, George Scithers, and others.

Volume 1 of Amra was an occasional newsletter of Legion activities published by George Heap who also published the Hyborian Times and the Hyborian Legion Bulletin. Reg Smith published Sardonic Worlds.
At Tricon in 1966, the Legion created a Guild of Artisans (its patron was St. John of Barsoom) and elected Frank Frazetta and all winners of the Heroic Fantasy Art Award as members. It also created Glenn Lord as "Mayor of the Palace of Tarantia". Martin Greenberg was still King of Aquilonia.

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!
