The Orlando Area Science Fiction Society
OASFiS consists of science fiction fans from all over the central Florida area and beyond. We have had members in Orlando, Daytona, Titusville, Connecticut, Washington, and even on the road with the circus! Formed in the 1980’s and incorporated in the State of Florida as a not-for-profit organization in 1987, many of the founding members were involved with MagiCon, the 1992 WorldCon, held in Orlando.
The main goal of OASFiS is the promotion and enjoyment of science fiction in all its forms.
Meetings are held at 1:30 PM on the second Sunday of every month. Please see the home page for location and topics of discussions for each meeting. Everyone is welcome to attend and join us for food afterward at a local restaurant.
The SF Lite Reader’s Group meets every third Saturday. Check out speakers and discussion topics on the home page.
OASFiS has run an annual convention, OASIS, in May since 1988. Because there were no other science fiction conventions in central Florida during that time of year, it was an “oasis in the desert” for SF fans.For information on our upcoming convention, see OASIS.
We provide for the Andre Norton Scholarship at Valencia Community College with a charity auction at our convention. We have also funded the Nearlink program for a school class and shipped SF books to needy Russian fans.
