Ansible. Dave Langford has been running Ansible for many years now and it’s still one of the best newsletters around. The online versions are much more comprehensive.

Lit-net. For readers and writers in the West Midlands and beyond. 

British Science Fiction Association The BSFA has been running since 1958, publishes regular magazines and holds meetings in London and outside. Their current website has details of current/future events and a blog along with more details. Their old website is no longer maintained but has an index of their magazine contents.

The Tolkien Society. Not quite Science Fiction but we always did have an interest in Fantasy and these people have strong connections with Birmingham and organise events at Sarehole Mill in Moseley

"The Ultimate Science Fiction Web Guide" seems to have one of the largest link sites around but is not as up to date in some things as it could be. Is there really a point to running "sneak previews" of 5 year old movies?

S F Site has another large database of sites as well as five years worth of interviews and reviews

Fandata's Fandom Directory has listings for all kinds of fans, clubs, and conventions across the world.

SFF Chronicles is an online forum for readers of Science Fiction, Fantasy and other, related stuff to discuss anything they have to discuss.

EFanzines is an online repository of fanzines. Here you will find the writings (and drawings) of many fans from over the years presented in pdf format. Some of them are well known as fans and, in some cases, writers of science fiction. There are even some from members of this group.

The Encyclopaedia of Science Fiction is the new online version of the Hugo award winning reference work.

The booksmith is a small bookshop that carries a range of books including SF. It's only a
couple of minutes walk from Chester Road Railway Station or a few minutes walk from The Yenton Pub bus stops.

And finally the group’s Honorary President,

Brian Aldiss;

To whom we all owe a great deal.
