Susan Smith-Clarke is one of the seminal figures in Science Fiction fandom in Australia.

Smith-Clarke has been involved in many ways, and through many years, with fandom. She began this long career in high school as a literary Science Fiction fan, publishing Girl’s Own Fanzine (1973). Her later fanzines include the media science fiction fanzines Beyond Antares (1977-1986), the official fanzine of the Star Trek club Astrex, and Chronicles (1984-), a Blake's 7 fanzine.

Aside from her own publishing, Susan also acquired a large collection of fanzines, newsletters etc. that are now housed in the National Library of Australia as the Susan Smith-Clarke Fanzine Collection.

In 1997, Susan Smith-Clarke was presented with the A. Bertram Chandler Award from the Australian Science Fiction Foundation.
