    I don't believe it. No Lafayette Ron Hubbard in the Hall of Fame? What the hell's going on? Have Galactic Emporer Xenu and his engram-ridden hordes escaped their ice prison and taken over?

    :)

    Both of you are very kind not to mention the inaccuracies at this site. It's good to know they haven't been immortalized over there. :lol: They'll be rectified within the next few years. :roll:

    :lol: Yeah, I noticed that, too. You'd think such a high-end affair could afford a bit better accuracy. Would it have killed them to have contacted you directly for a contribution of some sort, even if only to make sure their facts were correct?

    They just sent you a telescope out of the blue? That's pretty cool... and weird. And generous, yes.

    Thing about the Sci-Fi Museum is that it's a bit pricey. I'm sure certain relics, such as Darth Vader's helmet from The Empire Strikes Back and the original USS Enterprise model from the 1960s Star Trek series cost a pretty penny to acquire, but dang.

    Thanks. Nice picture. Pays to get the right make up artist... I got a nice working telescope from them. Very generous.
    Oddly, though, most of the bibliographical stuff is slightly wrong and the issue of NW shown is from a very early Carnell period issue! I appear to have started everything in 1965. Funny, because they use the Encyclopedia of SF as reference and that's pretty accurate!

  • Michael Moorcock at the Seattle Sci-Fi Museum

    Mike, I went to the new Seattle Sci-Fi Museum last night and was delighted to see you (or rather, your likeness) there!

    In the first section of the museum, there is this cool and fancy display called the "Science Fiction Hall of Fame". It is a slightly curved wall displaying an array of crystal blocks six inches square and about an inch thick, many of which are carved with the name and likeness of a Science Fiction great. The wall is backlit, giving it a very classy look. On the right end, at eye level, is a block dedicated to you! The engraving of your likeness is very good.

    Unfortunately, for reasons they didn't care to explain, photography is not allowed inside the exhibits, so I'm afraid I do not have a picture for you to see. But, for what it's worth, you're there among Mary Shelley, Fritz Leiber, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Frederik Pohl, Poul Anderson, AE von Vogt, Isaac Asimov, Heinlein, Le Guin, Verne, Wells, and on and on.

    There is a blurb about you on their website (HERE) but they do not show the actual engraving. The photo shown is the photo they carved it from, however.

    There is also a picture of the wall (HERE) but it is cut off such that your block is not visible.

    So, you know, there's another reason to get your bearded self out here to Seattle! :D Thought you'd like to know you're there among the other Science Fiction gods.
Working...
