Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame 2013 Inductees Include Tolkien and Bowie

Five more to join the ranks of Asimov, Bradbury, and Clarke.

Experience Music Project and Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame

It’s a good time for geek culture — if the popularity of this site is any kind of indicator. Movie releases are dominated by superheroes, fairy tales, and science fiction. And we definitely should honor the amazing people who helped bring these genres into the mainstream, and become familiar with their work, if you weren’t already. The EMP Museum, or the Experience Music Project and Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame, annually selects icons to honor by inducting them into its hall of fame, and the five chosen this year have certainly earned it.

Past winners have ranged from William Gibson to Steven Spielberg, Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley to James Cameron– basically, all people we’re a little bit obsessed with here. This year’s selections are no less awesome.
