The oldest international Science Fiction and Fantasy fan club in the known universe.
Regular members get print subscriptions to “The National Fantasy Fan” and electronic subscriptions to our other zines. The National Fantasy Fan, first published in 1941, is our newsletter. Our other zines are Tightbeam, Ionisphere, N’APA, Origin, The N3F Review of Books, Eldritch Science, and on occasion Films Fantastic and Mangaverse. Tightbeam is our genzine, with articles, reviews, and letters. Ionisphere, from the Fan-Pro Coordinating Bureau, emphasizes interviews with writers and fellow fen. N’APA, first published in 1959, is our APA. Origin covers fannish history. Eldritch Science publishes fiction, poetry, and art. Mangaverse covers anime, comics, and manga. The N3F Review of Books publishes reviews of novels, articles on writing, and reviews of books on Stfnal literary criticism.
Regular members elect and serve as club officers. Dues are $18/year.
Electronic and Joint Memberships
Electronic and household members have the same rights as Regular Members. However, electronic members pay only $6/year and receive The National Fantasy Fan, Tightbeam, Ionisphere, N’APA, Origin, Eldritch Science, and Mangaverse via email. For multi-fan households we have joint membership. The first fan joins as a Regular or Electronic member; other fans at the same address pay only $4/year, but are not sent separate copies of our clubzines.
Would you like to receive all of our zines for free? Public Members pay nothing. As a Public Member, your club publications are sent via email as PDF files. Public Members may not hold club offices or vote in club elections, but most club activities are open to Public Members as space permits.
