Chilean SF Society Founded

The Aso­ciación de Literatura de Ciencia Ficción y Fantástica – Chile (ALCiff), or Chilean Science Fiction Literary Society and Fantastica, has been founded by “a noisy bunch of Chilean fans,” and has about 40 members so far. They accept mem­bers from other countries. Their projects include a Spanish-spoken YouTube channel, “Los Hombres en el Castillo” [“The Men in the High Castle”], a Facebook fan page, and blog “El Continuo Cronn” [“The Cronn Continuum”]. They hope to send a delegation to the 2021 Worldcon, to publish a bilingual anthology of stories by Chilean authors, and to run a SF workshop. “We hope to keep developing interesting projects in the same vein. We encourage everyone to visit our projects and join us.” For more: <>.

    As a founding member of ALCiFF, thank you Locus Magazine for this announcement. We are officially alive for three months, but working on the project for almost two years. And I must say, that we will be at the 79th Worldcon. Chileans will invade DC… sure that not a single SF story predicted that. 😉
