The Los Angeles Science Fantasy Society, founded Oct. 27, 1934, is the world’s oldest continuously active science-fiction and fantasy club. Comprised of both old and young fans alike, it has grown from its humble beginnings as a tiny literary discussion club into a lively social group of science fiction and fantasy fandom readers, writers, cosplayers and in some instances, professionals in the literary, movie and television industries. Many of our members both run and volunteer at our annual West Coast Science Fantasy Conference (Westercon) and Loscon – the Los Angeles Regional Science Fiction and Fantasy Convention. These two long-running conventions are looked forward to every year, providing a place to hold science fiction, fantasy and genre art shows, charity fundraisers, blood drives and the renewing of fannish friendships of all types. Over its long lifetime, the LASFS has weathered the storms of World War II, fannish politics, the 1992 L.A. Riots, the 1994 Northridge Earthquake and the 2020-ongoing Covid Pandemic. While the names and faces of its members may change, the bonds of friendship through our mutual love of science fiction, fantasy and the popular arts have allowed us to endure in an ever-changing world and will hopefully continue on into the far future.

Message from the chair

Hello and welcome to the Los Angeles Science Fantasy Society.  LASFS is this planet’s oldest continuously running science fiction club.  We have been meeting every Thursday since 1934.  The history of this club is incredible.  We were the first club of its kind to get our own clubhouse.  I cannot tell you what an amazing honor it is to be the current chairman of the Board of Directors for this awesome club.  

As wonderful and interesting as our history is, its the future that we are looking toward.  A future that we invite you to be a part of.  LASFS has always been a leader in the fannish community, a community that spans the globe. 

LASFS is one of the most diverse groups.  All ethnicities and national origins, religions, and political leanings are welcome here.  We all one club and share the love of the genre.  Our members also vary in occupation. We have  experts in many of the scientific fields, movie and animation, librarians, lawyers, and much more, including published authors.  We are sure you will be able to find interesting conversations with fellow members.
