Spielberg Honoured For Science Fiction Contribution
STEVEN SPIELBERG has been honoured by the SCIENCE FICTION HALL OF FAME for his contribution to the cinematic world of fact, fiction and fantasy.
The OSCAR-winning film-maker, whose movies include CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND and JURASSIC PARK, joins author PHILIP K DICK as a luminary for the group which held its induction ceremony on Friday (6MAY05) - the first for the one-year-old organisation.
Spielberg says, "It (science fiction) really is the only genre that lets you use your imagination without limitations."
The late Dick, whose writing inspired sci-fi films BLADE RUNNER, TOTAL RECALL and MINORITY REPORT, joins other Science Fiction Hall of Fame authors ISAAC ASIMOV and JULES VERNE.08/05/2005 21:50
