MITSFS

The MIT Science Fiction Society in Cambridge, MA was founded in 1949. It has the world's largest open-shelf collection of science fiction, publishes Twilight Zine and has the motto "We're not fans, we just read the stuff." The MITSFS Index was a somewhat MITSFS project organized by Erwin S. Strauss.
