The Arthur C. Clarke Award is grateful to our partners for their support.
British Science Fiction Association
In 1958, a group of leading authors, publishers, booksellers and fans decided that Britain needed an organisation to encourage science fiction in every form. They set out to create an international forum that would bring together everyone interested in science fiction – and they succeeded. Today, the British Science Fiction Association unites members from Australia and Russia, Europe and the USA, Canada and Argentina.
Science Fiction Book Club
The Science Fiction Book Club is a privately run organisation that meets in central London on the 2nd & 4th Mondays of the month & is open to everyone, Men & Women alike, who enjoy discussing the themes & issues found in Science Fiction Novels.
They read, meet & discuss character-led Sci-Fi novels for grown-ups at the more literate end of Science Fiction spectrum. Anything from Atwood to Zelazny that helps them become ‘Well Read in SF’.
Science Fiction Foundation
The Science Fiction Foundation (Registered Charity No. 1041052) was founded in 1970 by the writer/social activist George Hay and others as a semi-autonomous association of writers, academics, critics and others with an active interest in science fiction. Arthur C. Clarke was one of the first patrons. Current patrons include Ursula LeGuin, Neil Gaiman and Prof. David Southwood.

It takes place annually in London in April/May, with a mini-festival in October and satellite events running throughout the year.
