All APAs
SFPA was founded in 1961 by Bob Jennings and it is still running today (November, 2022). It was originally envisioned as being open mostly to fans living in the southeastern United States (with no more than 20% of the membership allowed to be non-Southern) but in recent years, due to declining membership, that rule has been placed in hiatus. SFPA membership, over the years, has included many fans who are famous or prominent within the science fiction genre and its fandom: William Gibson, Bruce Pelz, Joe Staton, Mark Verheiden, Harry Warner Jr., and Toni Weisskopf to name just a few. SFPA’s 100th mailing (April 1981) set the all-time record for apa mailing size at 1,750 total pages. For more info, see
