James Gunn’s Science Fiction Hall of Fame remarks
August 13, 2015
KU professor emeritus James Gunn was inducted into the National Science Fiction Hall of Fame in 2015. Here are his remarks prepared for the induction ceremony. A quote: "A lot has happened to science fiction since I sat in a garret writing my first story in 1948. And as I look around at the publishing scene and the writing life, I realize that science fiction still has some crises to resolve. Well, it has been declared dead several times before, and I have confidence that now it can withstand success. The world has changed, too, often in positive ways, sometimes in ways that threaten its survival. It’s the job of science fiction, it’s our job, to observe those changes and consider their implications for human lives and maybe even do something to make those lives better, more livable, more human—whatever “human” turns out to be. Let’s save the world through science fiction."
