San Diego Speculative Fiction Society, Inc. (SanSFiS) is a group of fans working to promote the field of speculative fiction in all its genres (science fiction, fantasy, alternate history, etc.) and forms (books, movies, fanzines, drama, etc.)
Our current activities center around support and operation of local science fiction conventions. Future plans include lectures, workshops, and other educational events and activities within the greater San Diego region. SanSFiS sponsored Conjecture for 13 years, annually (except 2009) from Conjecture 1 in 2002 to Conjecture 13 in 2015. SanSFiS sponsored World Fantasy Convention held October 27-30, 2011, and Westercon 68 held July 2-5, 2015. From its first year in 2010 through 2012, SanSFiS sponsored Anime Conji, and as of March 3, 2017, resumed sponsoring it in 2018. Since 2017, SanSFiS has sponsored the annual Gaslight Steampunk Expo. SanSFiS sponsored Costume-Con 36, held May 11-15, 2018.
