The Speculative Literature Foundation is a volunteer-run, non-profit
organization dedicated to promoting the interests of readers, writers,
editors and publishers in the speculative literature community.
"Speculative literature" is a catch-all term meant to inclusively span the
breadth of fantastic literature, encompassing literature ranging from hard
and soft science fiction to epic fantasy to ghost stories to folk and fairy
tales to slipstream to magical realism to modern mythmaking -- any
literature containing a fabulist or speculative element.
