The British Fantasy Awards
The British Fantasy Society via the British Fantasy Newsletter and its sister journal, Dark Horizons, have served as a bastion for fantasy and horror fandom in the UK. In 1975, the BFS held its first convention, Fantasycon, and before that started the British Fantasy Award, a suggestion from president Ramsey Campbell. The society continues to publish a remarkable series of publications including numbered chapbooks by William Hope Hodgson, Michael Moorcock, Ramsey Campbell, Peter Tremayne, August Derleth and M.R. James. Magzines include Winter Chills, now named Chills, and Mystique, Tales Of Wonder. Both these magazines are independent publications, but linked to the BFS. Paperback titles include Clive Barker, Mythmaker for The Millennium written by Suzanne J. Barbieri and Annabel Says, a modern ghost story by Simon Clark and Stephen Laws.

Annual membership to the British Fantasy Society is £17.00 (UK), £20.00 (Europe), $35.00 (USA) and £25.00 (elsewhere) to:
