The Society for Fantastical Research & Exploration

Always on the lookout for new and intriguing groups around the area, I found this one centered in Plano in my email box this morning.

A place for those interested in steampunk, dieselpunk, clockpunk, cyberpunk, circus & cabaret as well as a bit of mystery, mayhem and the paranormal. Gather, talk or create havoc...we'll decide as we go along.

The above description from their page sounds like a lot of fun and I may have to check it out. I’ve been in a steampunkish mood as of late. Soulless (The Parasol Protectorate) by Gail Carriger (affiliate link), The Affinity Bridge (Newbury & Hobbes Investigations) by George Mann (affiliate link) and now I’ve got The Buntline Special: A Weird West Tale by Mike Resnick (affiliate link) in queue. You can join The Society for Fantastical Research & Exploration through here. If you know of any other groups in the DFW area, let me know.

Welcome to A Galaxy Called Dallas!

Located just north of downtown Garland, A Galaxy Called Dallas is your new Favorite Local Comic Shop! We carry everything a growing fanboy or fangirl needs and if we don't have it in stock, we can get it quickly. We offer a subscription service for the comics fan, an Honor Roll program for students in grades K-6, and even discount programs for teachers. Events are scheduled throughout the week and range from game nights to special interest clubs. Come see us on the southwest corner of North Garland Avenue and Belt Line Road in the North Star Crossing shopping center near Nickelrama and Sali's Pizza.
