PARSEC is a Pittsburgh-area club which is 501(c)3. It puts on Confluence and publishes the SIGMA e-newsletter. PARSEC used to be an initialism for "Pittsburgh Area Realtime Scientifiction Enthusiasts Club" — but wisely gave that up… The founders included Ann Cecil.

ParsecInk is its publishing arm.


This is a stub club page. Please extend it by adding information about when and where the club met, how long it was active, notable accomplishments, well-known members, club fanzines, any conventions it ran, external links to the club's website, other club pages, etc.
When there's a floreat (Fl.) this indicates the time or times for which the club is attested. Clubs probably lasted longer than that. Please update it!
