The BFS was formed in 1971 (as the British Weird Fantasy Society) for "all devotees of fantasy, horror, and the supernatural". Catering now in the main for horror fans, this active society - which sponsors an annual CONVENTION, Fantasycon (1975-current) - has no direct relevance to sf other than a substantial crossover of membership with sf groups. However, an earlier British Fantasy Society (1942-6) was sf-based (BRITISH SCIENCE FICTION ASSOCIATION for further details).
