PhringeCon was a pop culture convention in Phoenix in the early eighties hosted by PhringeCon, Inc. for 'people interested in the fringes of science fiction', those fringes apparently being what would become mainstream a couple of decades later. Just compare the guests to those of the now 100,000+ attended Phoenix Comicon!

CASFS (the Central Arizona Speculative Fiction Society) resurrected the con at least once after PhringeCon, Inc. had ceased to be.
