About the Science Fiction Hall of Fame
The Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will be held Saturday, June 25, 2011 at EMP in conjunction with the Science Fiction Awards Weekend, June 24-26, 2011.
The Hall of Fame honors the lives, works, and ongoing legacies of science fiction's greatest creators. The Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame was founded in 1996 by the Kansas City Science Fiction and Fantasy Society (KCSFFS) in conjunction with the J. Wayne and Elsie M. Gunn Center for the Study of Science Fiction at the University of Kansas. Created in 1971, the KCSFFS fosters interest in the literary forms known as science fiction and fantasy, and is one of the oldest science fiction clubs in mid-America.
Each year since 1996, the Hall of Fame has inducted four individuals on the basis of their continued excellence and long-time contribution to the science fiction field. The Science Fiction Museum is honored to now be the permanent physical home of the Hall of Fame, and will continue its mission through annual inductions of individuals who have made outstanding and significant contributions to Science Fiction.
