Libertarian Futurist Society

The Libertarian Futurist Society, a nonprofit international network of freedom-loving sf/fantasy fans, was founded in 1982 to recognize and promote libertarian-themed science fiction and other fantastic fiction. LFS presents the annual Prometheus Award for Best Novel, the Prometheus Hall of Fame Award (for Best Classic Fiction) and occasional Special Prometheus Awards for life achievement, short fiction, anthologies, graphic novels and other categories.

The LFS publishes the public Prometheus blog with reviews, essays, award news, author updates and appreciations of past winners and also sends to LFS members the LFS News, a quarterly email newsletter with updates on awards, nominees and finalists, voting deadlines, Worldcon awards ceremony plans, judging committee and board openings for volunteers, and other special membership opportunities. (From 1982 to 2015, the LFS published the quarterly journal Prometheus, which is now available on-line via an index of all volumes linking to particular articles and entire issues.)

How to join the Libertarian Futurist Society

If you enjoy science fiction, fantasy and speculative near-future works that dramatize the value of freedom and the dangers of tyranny from the extremes of the Left or Right, and are excited by the possibilities for peace, prosperity, progress and respect for other people’s rights that a free society unleashes, then we invite you to become a part of the LFS. If you are intrigued by libertarianism and futurism, and the cross-pollination between these two dynamic fields, consider joining this decentralized coalition of free spirits working to inspire a free future.

There are several  levels of LFS membership, with the higher levels offering the opportunity to vote in the final stages of all Prometheus award categories. Whether or not you choose to exercise your right to vote in the final stage of the Prometheus Awards each year, your greater degree of support will help sustain the LFS, its awards program and other activities.
