1) The USPS was going to honor just five authors until this past April of 2013, all of them male. This would be a gross misrepresentation of the effect women have had in this field of literature.
2) The general public needs to be made aware of the wide range of people who have affected American AND world culture over the past three generations. Without these creative artists, it's hard to imagine how anyone could have been influenced to create Star Trek, Star Wars, medical techniques, modern computers and software, communication satellites or the world wide web.

      Because sci-fi has changed the world and the authors provide the inspiration and insight.

      Almost all the advances in society are originally conceived of by our great writers. They deserve adequate cultural recognition.
