An article written by Damon Knight in the October 1940 issue of Art Widner's Fanfare which called for a general fan organization to replace the fading New Fandom. This inspired members of the Stranger Club and others to form the N3F.

According to Harry Warner, Knight's article was partly inspired by a letter written to him by Jerome Walton in 1937. The title itself was a play on the over-the-top speech Mutation or Death! and the old motto "Unite or Die!"
