Join or Renew with the Bfs
With memberships starting from just £20, there are many reasons to join the BFS. We are a family of fantasy and horror enthusiasts all with different motivations brought together by our love of these genres. Some of us are writers, publishers, artists, bloggers and agents, others would like be those and so come to find out more. We endeavour to provide a place for people to connect and discover new friends, new books, and new worlds. There is something here for everyone, and if you think something is missing you can tell us and we’ll help you make it happen.
Paper or e-Memberships
You can choose between Paper or eMemberships. Our Paper membership includes the added costs of printing and posting our publications to you, while eMemberships gives you ebook versions only.
Single or Joint Memberships
As well as a choice in format for publications, for paper memberships you can choose to get a single membership for yourself, or a joint membership for you and your partner. With joint memberships you get a reduced rate because we only send one copy of the publications for the household, but each person named on the joint membership gets a vote at the awards, and discounts to events are also for both parties.
UK, EU or Worldwide
Although we are based in the UK we accept members from all over the world. The cost of sending paper copies of the publications abroad is reflected in the pricing.
