The Chimera Fantasy and Science Fiction Club
Although Carolina does not currently host any official sci-fi student groups, Chapel Hill was home to the Chimera Fantasy and Science Fiction Club from 1984 to 1996. The Chimera Club was open to all students interested in science fiction and fantasy in film, television, fiction, and tabletop games. The Chimera Club even held an annual ChimeraCon for twelve years! A frequent guest to ChimeraCon was Orson Scott Card. Card is the author of the popular novel-turned-film Ender’s Game. Check out some of the ChimeraCon programs below!
