ConFiction was the first Worldcon after the fall of the Berlin wall and attracted many members from the former iron-curtain countries.

The site selection for the 1993 Worldcon was won by San Francisco in '93 which went on to run ConFrancisco. Other bidders were Hawaii in '93, Zagreb in '93 and Phoenix in '93. See 1993 Worldcon Site Selection for details.

Kees van Toorn plans a reunion convention, Reunicon 2020, and has created a memorial website, unusual for a 1990 con.
