Hi, Sci-Fi club! The writers of the club have started writing at our writing events and are sharing their work right here on the website. I hope you enjoy seeing these glimpses into each persons process as they write a story from a simple prompt. Now, I caution you. All of these stories were written in one sitting and in under one hour. So without further adue, here are the stories:
Speed Demon by Eric Howard
Portraits of the Past by Simon
Untitled by JimBob
If you would like to share your writing with the club, feel free to click on the short story submissions link above to send them to us!!
We are proud to welcome astronomer Jon Voisey for a lively discussion about the physics of anime. Join us for “Anime Mythbusters” at Lucky’s Market next week. (Saturday, 02/28/2015)
Anime Mythbusters explores the use, or perhaps more accurately, the misuse of science in various anime series. This includes well known series such as Pokemon, Naruto, Bleach, Cowboy Bebop,Ruroni Kenshin, Final Fantasy: Advent Children,Avatar: The Last Airbender, Dragon Ball Z,Samurai 7 and Gurren Lagann.
In each segment, a scenario from a series will be presented and Jon Voisey will explore with us the science behind why, not only could that scenario not work as shown, but to make it work, it may well destroy the world!
After the presentation we’ll have a social hour, so everyone will have a chance to ask questions and get to know our guest and each other.
RSVP Required, Sign-up Here
The club will provide light refreshments. Additionally, $2.00 craft beer pints are available for purchase.
Do you have a story in your head and just waiting to get out? Maybe you just have the start of something and could use some help and inspiration from your fellow scifi/fantasy fans to see it grow. No matter the case, come join us in celebrating this year’s National Novel Writing Month!
What is NaNoWriMo?:
National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to creative writing. On November 1, participants begin working towards the goal of writing a 50,000-word novel by 11:59 PM on November 30.Valuing enthusiasm, determination, and a deadline, NaNoWriMo is for anyone who has ever thought fleetingly about writing a novel.
NaNoWriMo Edition Events:
We will be manning our own fan table at the St. Louis, Scifi convention, Archon! Oct. 3-5.
Come visit us, get to know the group, and participate in our Con Picture Caption Contest! 5:30pm deadline.
Welcome to the St. Louis Scifi & Fantasy Club home page!
We are a diverse group of fun people unified in our love of all things Scifi, Fantasy, or often otherwise just geeky in general. We have lots of events and often meet at least a time or two every month but sometimes a lot more.
If you want to try and jump right in, visit us on our Meetup.com page and register for one of our many upcoming events!
