Science Fiction Hall of Fame

Founded in 1996, the Science Fiction Hall of Fame was relocated from the Gunn Center for the Study of Science Fiction at the University of Kansas to its permanent home at EMP in 2004.

EMP is "a leading-edge, nonprofit museum, dedicated to the ideas and risk-taking that fuel contemporary popular culture." It is located in Seattle, Washington.

Hall of Fame nominations are submitted by EMP members. The final inductees are chosen by a panel of award-winning SF and fantasy authors, artists, editors, publishers, and film professionals.

The name is now the Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame.

The first inductees (in 1996) were Jack Williamson; A. E. van Vogt; John W. Campbell, Jr.; Hugo Gernsback.
