General Media

The Anime Club is a volunteer-based, non-profit student organization at the University of Texas at Austin. Our purpose is to provide fans of Japanese animation, or anime, a place to meet and exchange views and information. We hold regular showings (open to the public) of selected anime series, many of which are not commercially available in the United States. (Unless otherwise noted, all of the titles that we show are in Japanese with English subtitles.)
Combine your interests in both anime AND cosplay by joining the Austin Cosplay Defense Force!


Texas Revenant Rangers is a Steampunk group that make props for movies and costumes, help to promote steampunk community events, and participate in fund raisers for various charities, such as "Blue Skyes Over Autism".
The Revenant Rangers were marshaled to bring order to frontier of the United Texas Territories. Their Black Badges are well known, and they have been tasked to enforce the law among the more colorful peoples of the territories - such as the vampire Indian tribes, troll clans, were-folks and the like.
From an old word for those who return from the dead — this group earned their name “Revenant” after putting down the undead buffalo plague of the early 1880s. To date, none of the Rangers are revenant themselves… but, truth be told, they ain’t too sure about the Judge.


If board games are your thing, be sure to drop by a meeting of the Austin Board Game Group Saturdays at Great Hall Games.

Literary/General SF

Fandom Association of Central Texas, Inc.(F.A.C.T.) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit educational organization dedicated to the promotion of science fiction, fantasy, and speculative fiction.

We sponsor many activities aimed towards furthering the cause of literacy and the enjoyment of the genres. One example is ArmadilloCon, our annual literary conference. Some of our other functions include autographings, the F.A.C.T. Science Fiction Reading Group, meetings, social gatherings and The F.A.C.T. Sheet.

Star Wars

May the Force be with you! Lone Star Jedi is a not-for-profit organization formed by residents of Central Texas who are fans of the Star Wars series of films, are battle saber enthusiasts, and who are interested in the Jedi Martial Arts or the art of fencing and swordplay in general.

We wield battle sabers and practice PVC swords to learn and share with others about this wonderful martial art. Lone Star Jedi appreciates the many forms as well as the dangers of this art by showcasing our skills through cos play, character development and live stage combat.

The goal of the Lone Star Jedi is to provide local fans with opportunities to meet other fans who reside in Central Texas who share a love for swordsmanship, costuming (or cos play), and stage combat.

Opportunities through the group may include but not be limited to online activities, club meetings, professional and amateur sword instruction, sword building or saber smithy, fan films, other fun activities, and a way of providing a connective matrix to other Star Wars fans, Jedi Martial Art fans and swords persons in the surrounding areas.


Fandom at Random DFW is the Arlington-based Dallas/Fort Worth group for comic, sci-fi/fantasy, movie/TV, and collectibles fandom. The purpose of this group is to provide opportunities for fans of all kinds to meet and enjoy a mutual love of all kinds of media. Our core group consists of comic, Star Wars, Star Trek, sci-fi/fantasy fans and collectors, though all kinds of fandom are welcome. We've found that the lines that divide various genre of fandom are blurry at best and that many fans include themselves in many categories. So why limit the group to just comics, or just Star Wars (both personal favorites). We will have some informal meetings and get-togethers soon and will also try to arrange official gatherings at local conventions.

So if you have a particular fondness for all things fandom, or even just a few, feel free to join Fandom at Random DFW, the all-inclusive fandom group!

And speaking of local conventions, one of the other purposes of Fandom at Random DFW is to help further awareness of the rich Dallas/Fort Worth (and also Texas) convention scene. Many of these great conventions go unnoticed by fans who would love to attend. Look to us as a source for info on upcoming conventions of every kind!

Finally, we are silly for the fan collector's scene. We love meeting fellow collectors and hope to develop a network to help local collectors help each other find those great toys, comics, and other collectibles that may not be available in one are but plentiful in another.

Why not join us and become a part of the newest force in DFW fandom!
