A science fiction club (as distinguished from a fan club) is a general society for the discussion and propagation of science fiction and fantasy, often also discussing other varieties of speculative fiction, from comics to gaming. The oldest science fiction club was the Science Fiction League founded as a marketing move by Hugo Gernsback. Local science fiction clubs often serve as bases from which science fiction conventions can be organized.
