The Fredericton Science Fiction Society (FSFS) is an officially recognised student club of the University of New Brunswick. Our membership consists of students of UNB, STU, (alumni of both), faculty, and other sentient beings in Fredericton's general locality.
The FSFS meets to discuss all aspects of science fiction, fantasy, anime, and any other related genre. Our primary activities are our meetings (monthly) and gatherings (weekly) - see Club Activities & Events for further information. The main difference between the two is that we try to get some official business done at meetings before we start talking about other things.
The FSFS started many, many years ago here in Fredericton (late 1970s). For some time there was also a Star Trek group called The USS Hawking. As the members became interested in many other genres within the SF/F umbrella it became necessary to reflect that in the title of The Fredericton Science Fiction Society While the formats have broadened to include not only science fiction, but also fantasy, anime, role-playing games, etc, it was decided to leave the title as it was. FSFS is a club where strange people are the norm, and all you need is a love of the genre. Our particular definition of "the genre" is rather elastic and inclusive. Frankly FSFS was just easier to remember. :)
