The British Science Fiction Association was established in 1958 by a group of leading authors, readers, publishers and booksellers, including Brian Aldiss who was the first President of the BSFA and Edmund Crispin who became the second President. The current President is Arthur C Clarke.
The BSFA was established to create an international forum that would bring together everyone interested in science fiction and today it has members around the world. It publishes a highly respected critical journal, Vector, a news magazine, Matrix, and a magazine aimed at writers, Focus.
The BSFA gives the BSFA Awards.
They also voted a list of the ten best british SF novels 1948-1998: http://www.bsfa.co.uk/bestbrit.htm
