Desertcon

Overview

Desertcon was an annual science fiction and horror film convention in Tucson that predates TusCon. It was held at the University of Arizona and attracted major guests. However it may not have survived the seventies.

Patrick Nielsen Hayden writes about interviewing Leigh Brackett and Edmond Hamilton at Desertcon, though that doesn't mean they were GoHs, and seeing Poul Anderson and George Pal.
