SFFSA is a long running South African Science Fiction & Fantasy club. We enjoy social gatherings once a month, an extensive library of books for members, an excellent quarterly fanzine, mini conventions, a yearly short story competition and much more.

We are back to level 1. Lockdown Level 1 restrictions allow social gatherings of up to 2000 people (outdoors). This might cause a severe dent in the number of guests invited to meetings. But the Omicron Variant has caused serious concern, to such an extent that we may not hold live events for a while.
We will still hold our regular monthly meetings virtually, using the Zoom platform. Be sure to check back for updated information.
Be good and be safe.
NEXT EVENT: ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
Without braai - R10 (members) R20 (non-members)
We will hold our Annual General Meeting on 15 January 2022. Currently, the plans are the usual Bring & Braai. However, Covid restrictions change on a daily basis, and we are very conservative with our approach to live meetings. If the situation changes, we will hold the AGM virtually on the Zoom platform. Be sure to check the latest information here, before you leave home.
For any queries please call Ian on 083 523 0081

ONLINE SURVEY REQUESTRhianna Morse is doing doctoral research at Brunel London University in the topic of Film and Television Studies. Her research is titled Windows of Fantasy: The Significance of Science Fiction and Fantasy Film and Television Posters. The aim of the research is to explore the significance of science fiction and fantasy posters for individuals and groups as a source of cultural significance and meaning. This could help generate a better appreciation of what posters really mean to their owners. As part of this, she is searching for adults (18-80) owning science-fiction and fantasy poster(s) who could participate in her research project by completing an online survey. Would you be willing and able to help? More information and the link to the Online Survey can be found on her PhD Study Website
