The Blakes 7 Appreciation Society. The world's largest club for this brilliant British sci-fi series. Great magazine. Lots of B7 merchandise.

First Fandom
"Around one Easter weekend in the 1950s a small gathering of old time fans created First Fandom. They met in the home of Dr. C. L. Barrett, avid fan and collector, in Bellefontaine, Ohio on the occasion of a very early MidWestCon. Their fellowship from the 1930s made them a special, closely-knit group and they spontaneously agreed to call themselves "First Fandom", the nucleus for the inclusion of all others deemed part of their fellowship. So, an unstructured society of persons 'active' in SF before 1940 came into being."

Satellite News
The premier site for Mystery Science Theater 3000 news. The show may be over (sob!), but there's still a lot going on in the wacky world of MSTie-dom.

Stargate SG-1
