S F A B C Online
The Association maintains a number of Google Groups for discussions and infromation. These are organized by topic - Books; Comics; Movies; Science; Television; Writing; and others. Some are Public (non members can view but not participate), others are Private (hidden from non members). The club also maintains four active websites (and also preserves information from our site's previous incarnations).
These groups allow members to share interests and information.
SFABC (nj) BOOK & AUTHOR GROUP
This group focuses on science fiction, fantasy and horror books and stories and the people who write them. News, reviews, commentary and other information appear as DISCUSSIONS. The address is: SFABC Books. A list of books discussed at Association Book Groups appears on this site here: Books Read and Discussed.
SFABC (nj) MOVIE GROUP
This group is dedicated to genre movies. The PAGES list movies with a connection to the Association. The DISCUSSIONS post news and opinions about new and classic films. The address is: SFABC Movies. A list of movies viewed at Association events appears on this site here: Movies.
SFABC (nj) SCIENCE & SCIENCE FICTION GROUP
This group is concerned with science, technology, and science/tech oriented science fiction. The DISCUSSIONS post links to articles and stories members find of interest. The address is: SFABC Science & Science Fiction. The link to the website's Space / Science Page is here: Space / Science & Technology.
SFABC (nj) TELEVISION GROUP
This group discusses current and classic genre television series. DISCUSSIONS post news, reviews, and other information about shows. The address is: SFABC Television. Our website lists television series, particularly those which bear a connection to the Association (such as novels about the show written by past guest speakers, book store events which focused on the series, or episodes screened at an official S F A B C function) here: Television.
The Association also maintains Private Groups which cannot be accessed by non members:
PERSONALS is for club business, sensitive information, and anything which does not fit into one of the other groups.
WEIRD NOVELS is for critique of novels and other longish works by members of our writers group.
WRITERS OF THE WEIRD allows our writers to share information and post shorter works for critique.
These groups provide information about aspects of the Association.
