Sammath Naur
Mythopoeic Society of Hawaii

Discussing Science Fiction & Fantasy Literature since 1975

Sammath Naur, the Mythopoeic Society of Hawaii, is a book discussion group focusing on Science Fiction and Fantasy.

About the Group

Sammath Naur is a small group of readers who gather periodically to discuss good books and enjoy overindulgent potlucks. Meetings are held at various homes around Oahu usually on the third Sunday of the month between 1 and 4 pm (We don't meet in December and June and November meeting will be the 2nd Sunday) For more information email Ken Burtness - purplewolf(at)

Another non-SF&F group had formed years ago with some members of Sammath Naur plus additional people. Over time that group dwindled down to just Sammath Naur members and two meetings a meetings a month became too frequent for our busy lives, so the groups merged and we occasionally read non-SF&F books.
