The Festivus is the official quarterly publication of the San Diego Shell Club, Inc. and is issued in February, May, August and November as part of membership dues. The Festivus publishes articles that are peer reviewed by our volunteer Scientific Review Board (which are of a scientific nature, including the description of new taxa), as well as articles of general interest to malacologists, conchologists, and shell collectors of every level.
