History of ConDor

ConDor started in 1993 as San Diego’s very own science-fiction media and literature convention with well-known science-fiction author Octavia Butler as the first literary guest of honor and J. Michael Staczynski as the first media guest of honor. Over the years many authors, artists, actors have been honored at ConDor. The three-day event will feature guests, panels, and many opportunities to interact with other individuals immersed in the science-fiction media and literature community.

There will be a dealers room featuring a wide variety of merchandise from multiple fandoms and there will be fun had by all.

ConDor is a project of C.A.A.S.M. The California Association for the Advancement of Speculative Media, Inc. (C.A.A.S.M) is an IRS 501(c) 3 tax exempt non-profit corporation. Its purpose is to promote an interest in the speculative fiction media (science fiction and fantasy) and provide opportunities to educate and broaden public awareness of this genre.
