ConDor is a GREAT local SF convention. I travelled from Santa Monica to attend because of the excellent panels, parties and interaction with other fans of all stripes. SF Fandom is aging so it was good to see members of the younger generations attending. Mundanes don't know what they are missing by looking down their noses at highly intelligent people having a good time. The Geeks shall inherit the Earth!~) There all kinds of fans in the world from football to Hello Kitty and everythig in between. Many mudanes consider all SF to be escape fiction, but like any genre there are novels that are highly literate and some that are just entertainment. SF has exploded into the media like westerns of yesteryear. You see a lot of mixing of genres, gaming, costuming, comics, etc. Anything that gets people to discover the lost art of reading and writing in this internet age of ADHD, Asperger's and other syndromes of the 21st century.
