  • Ian's thick Scottish accent, despite decades ofliving in South Africa
  • The obligatory B-grade movie, with the comments that fly after an afternoon of drinks (Mystery Science Theatre, South African style)
  • Wormholes (naah, we're not going to explain this one; you'll have to join us at an event to find out)
  • Andrew on anime
  • Carla on movies
  • Ron's puns
  • Ron urging you to join the:
    • Astronomical Society of Southern Africa
    • Archaeology Society of South Africa
    • Military History Society of South Africa
      "Whether you like it or not, it's the military which has been a major driving force behind developments in technology."
  • Simone asking what you've read lately and if she may borrow it, please?
  • Digby Ricci, guest speaker extraordinaire who doesn't read science fiction, actually, and always wonders why we invite him

  • Note:
    • Please note that an SFFSA membership covers a single person, a co-habitating couple, or entire family. In other words, if your are living under one roof, you only need a single membership. You do however, get only one copy of PROBE, no matter how large the number of people covered by a membership.
    • To make life easier for ourselves, especially when it comes to renewals, we charge new members the Pro Rata rate applicable at the time they join.

  • Local:
    Subscriptions are R275 per annum for local members (in the Gauteng area.)

  • Country:
    Subscriptions are R200 per annum for country members (not in the Gauteng area.)

  • International:
    US$30.00 (or equivalent), with an additional US$30.00 to receive Probe by airmail


Membership fees may be paid via electronic transfer, PayPal, or cash (at an event), accompanied by a completed membership application form
