Science Fiction League

Tagged: Community

Launched April 1934 by Charles D Hornig and Hugo Gernsback through Wonder Stories, the Science Fiction League was the first and most successful of several professionally sponsored sf organizations. The formation of local chapters in the USA, Australia, and the UK brought sf readers together and provided a firm foundation for present-day sf Fandom; in particular, the establishment of the Leeds and Nuneaton Science Fiction League chapters led directly to the first UK Fanzines.
