BCSFA was founded in January 1970. Been around a long time.
Currently a loose social group for veterans of BCSFA, the VCON conventions, and WCSFA (West Coast SF Association, the registered society which oversees VCON, our annual SF&F convention which has been running off and on since 1971. 2021 will be VCON’s 50th anniversary.)
We also welcome any and all SF&F fans from across Canada and elsewhere, including SF&F writers, publishers, and editors.
This site has been created to:
a) Distribute our clubzine BCSFAzine in order to promote the club and entertain fans everywhere.
b) Arrange monthly get-togethers once Covid is gone, probably in the form of dinner meetings at restaurants.
c) Allow local SF&F writers to socialize, mutually support each other’s self-promotion, and arrange book readings, lectures, and other public events where and when possible.
d) Support the ongoing VCON conventions to the best of our ability, and
e) Carry out other projects to promote SF&F in the Vancouver Lower Mainland and possibly elsewhere in B.C. depending on the whim and will of members as they see fit. Could be workshops. Could be?
Cheers! R. Graeme Cameron — God-Editor of BCSFAzine starting with issue #338 in March, 2020. (“God-Editor” being the whimsical off-beat persona I employed when editing BCSFAzine in the late 1990s.)
