(Did you mean the Science Fiction Poetry Association?)


The Southern Fandom Press Alliance, a bi-monthly apa limited (though not entirely) to fans living in the Old South. It was founded in September 1961 by Bob Jennings. Its Official Organ was The Southerner.

Membership is governed by two rules: The "Damn Yankee" rule (no more than 20% of the membership could be non-Southern) and the Once a Southerner, Always a Southerner rule (a Southerner living in the North still counts as a Southerner). Shadow-SFPA is an apa for SFPA waitlisters.

An index to the first 270 mailings of SFPA is hosted at Fanac.org.

Mailings appear every other month - January, March, May, July, September, November. September 2011 (Mailing 283) was the 50th anniversary (the apa was originally quarterly). The September 1976 mailing had 880 pages! But the April 1981 mailing -- the 100th -- which was collated at Satyricon had 1,748 pages even without Harry Andruschak's 300+ page contribution. As of 2020, it was still active.


Shadow SFPA[edit]

Shadow SFPA was an apa for people on the SFPA waitlist that was founded by Beth Schwarzin in 1977. The OEship passes from member to member as they are admitted to SFPA.
