LOCUS MAGAZINE: The guide to the world’s imagination. 

The Locus Science Fiction Foundation (LSFF) is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to the promotion and preservation of science fiction, fantasy, and horror. Its central activity is the publication of Locus, the Magazine of the Science Fiction & Fantasy Field, established in 1968, and its website Locus Online, started in 1997. These publications discuss, explore, and celebrate the genres of SF, fantasy, and horror literature, as well as young adult, non-fiction, and related art, embracing the breadth and the diversity of the field with critical reviews, commentary, essays, interviews with established and new authors, news about the industry, international coverage, bibliographic listings, and more.

The LSFF is also responsible for the annual Locus Awards, first presented in 1971, to recognize excellence in science fiction and fantasy literature.

The LSFF has ongoing preservation-based indexing and database projects, seeks to steward this literary heritage through continued acquisition of literary rights, and to contribute to community education through a series of local writing master classes.

In addition, the Foundation is responsible for curating the Locus Collection, a large, historical library of speculative fiction materials currently housed at Duke University.
