Sword & Sorcery and Weird Fiction Terminus, an APA focusing on fantasy and horror.
Official editors: Leigh Blackmore and Scott A. Schaeffer
SSWFT was founded by Australian editor and critic, first OE Benjamin J. Szumskyj in the early 2000s. He oversaw 28 quarterly mailings before gafiating.
The apa was taken over by Leigh Blackmore with mailing 29 in early 2009, since when Blackmore and SSWFT's other Official Editor, Scott A. Sheaffer, have run it continuously.
SSWFT reached its 50th quarterly mailing in August 2013.
SSWFT currently (2016) has members in the US, UK, Austraia, Finland, and Sweden. It has been at the forefront of distributing its mailings to most members via electronic PDF files rather than via traditional hardcopy through 'snail mail'. Each mailing is shared by the OE to a file sharing service such as Dropbox, whence members download the mailing.
There is some overlap of members with the Esoteric Order of Dagon (EOD) apa which is edited by Lovecraft scholar S.T. Joshi.
