Next Meetup

Chicago-SF book discussion: “Six Wakes" by Mur Lafferty
In April we’ll be discussing “Six Wakes" by Mur Lafferty When: 2 PM on Saturday April 21st Where: Oak Park Public Library (834 Lake),either in the second floor book discussion room or a third floor conference room. The exact location will be posted in the library's TV monitors. The Oak Park Library is conveniently located a few blocks away from public transportation: both CTA and RTA. As always, this discussion is free and open to anybody and everybody. Most of us usually have dinner at a nearly place afterwards. Check out the discussion(s) on Facebook and/or Meetup. We'll decide the day before where to go. < blurb taken from Amazon>> On a space ship far from earth, someone is murdering the crew. And the crew's newly awakened clones will have to find their killer--before he strikes again! Maria Arena awakens in a cloning vat streaked with drying blood. She has no memory of how she died. This is new; before, when she had awakened as a new clone, her first memory was of how she died. Maria's vat is one of seven, each one holding the clone of a crew member of the starship Dormire, each clone waiting for its previous incarnation to die so it can awaken. And Maria isn't the only one to die recently...

What we're about

Public Group

Have an idea for a meetup, feel free to make a suggestion. Or Just let us know and we'll handle the mechanics for you.

Science fiction, fantasy and speculative fiction fans getting together to have fun!
Isaac Asimov, Harry Potter, Dr. Who, Pern, Star Trek, Lord of the Rings, Battlestar Galactica, Valdemar, Star Wars... the list of our interests and enthusiasms goes on and on.
Come join us at our monthly social at Dave and Busters to meet fans from all over Chicago and suburbs who have equally wide-ranging interests.
Order off the menu, pay before you leave and have fun!

Our focus is relaxed socializing. We have a monthly social at Dave and Buster's on Clark, a monthly book discussion group in Oak Park and generally organize a movie outing when important new cinematic works (the new Harry Potter, Star Trek, Terminator, etc) are released. We also host a yearly party at WindyCon and lots of us attend Capricon, Duckon and WindyCon. Indeed some really dedicated members do a lot of work for those cons!
At the monthly social we regularly see 40+ attendees who enjoy books, movies, manga, gaming, and many other aspects of speculative fiction too numerous to list.
We also organize trips to Great America, bowling outings, museums, picnics and other fun events, because things are just more entertaining when you are with other fans!
Join our forum at, introduce yourself and we look forward to seeing you!
