In the past, new inductees to the Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame were chosen by a secret society whose masked, anonymous members met at twilight in a lonely wood outside Lawrence, Kansas.
Well, okay, it wasn’t a secret society and they met at an academic conference. But the point is these dudes (and they were all dudes) just decided who was in. They had great intentions, and founded a great institution, but at MoPOP we believe an open process that brings in more voices creates a robust and diverse Hall of Fame. Science fiction and fantasy is a massively popular, global obsession, and any list of the best of the best should reflect the whole range of stories and their fans.
Today anyone can help choose new inductees by nominating and voting. Share your fantastical passions with us, and help expand this growing body of imaginative writers, artists, filmmakers, games, movies, characters and more.
