Science Fiction Hall of Fame

Listing the prominent people from the science fiction domain spanning all art forms--film, television, literature, theater, and so on--who not just entertained us but pushed the limits of science and real-world through their imagination.

H. G. Wells

Herbert George "H.G." Wells (21 September 1866 - 13 August 1946) was an English writer, now best known for his work in the science fiction genre. He was also a prolific writer in many other genres, including contemporary novels, history, politics, and social commentary, even writing textbooks and rules for war games.

J. R. R. Tolkien

After his father's death, Tolkien's son Christopher published a series of works based on his father's extensive notes and unpublished manuscripts, including The Silmarillion. These, together with The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings form a connected body of tales, poems, fictional histories, invented languages, and literary essays about a fantasy world called Arda, and Middle-earth within it.

Steven Spielberg

Steven Allan Spielberg (born December 18, 1946) is an American film director, screenwriter, producer, and business magnate. In a career of more than four decades, Spielberg's films have covered many themes and genres. Spielberg's early science-fiction and adventure films were seen as archetypes of modern Hollywood blockbuster filmmaking.

Arthur C. Clarke

In the 1980s Clarke became well known to many for his television programmes Arthur C. Clarke's Mysterious World , Arthur C. Clarke's World of Strange Powers and Arthur C. Clarke's Mysterious Universe . In 1986 he was named a Grand Master by the Science Fiction Writers of America.

Clarke was a lifelong proponent of space travel.

Isaac Asimov

Born Isaak Yudovich Ozimov, he was an American author and professor of biochemistry at Boston University, best known for his works of science fiction and for his popular science books. Asimov was one of the most prolific writers of all time, having written or edited more than 500 books and an estimated 90,000 letters and postcards.
Asimov is widely considered a master of hard science fiction and, along with Robert A. Heinlein and Arthur C. Clarke, he was considered one of the "Big Three" science fiction writers during his lifetime.
