From Fancyclopedia 1, ca. 1944
(Lovecraft) - Name from a story by HPL. The Club was formerly the Washington Necronomicon, a Weird Tales Club. It consists of weirdists and a few submerged stfists dwelling in Washington, DC, including Seabury Quinn. Old-time fantasy movies were frequently revived to be shown at meetings of the club. The Outsiders have no contact with fandom, tho they've published some issues of a club organ, The Outsider.

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!
