ConDor was created in 1993. At a time when science fiction conventions were going extinct in San Diego, just like the California Condors. Our first guests were late author Octavia Butler as the Literary Guest of Honor and comic book writer J. Michael Staczynski. As times have changed, so too have conventions. ConDor is moving in new directions and blazing new paths in 2020. We at ConDor recognize that it is time to incorporate all people in our love of Sci-Fi and Fantasy. Due to the ongoing pandemic we, like so many other conventions. Have gone virtual for 2020. ConDex is the start of a Condor rebrand. Our new mascot ConDex, a hybrid of the Phoenix and a condor. It represents our continued commitment to blend the old with the new.
