Father of the Hugos

Today is the birthday of Hugo Gernsback (1884-1967) after whom science fiction's highest awards honour is named, the Hugo Award. He would be 121 years old if he was still with us today. He founded the first science fiction magazine Amazing Stories in 1926.

Coincidentally the World Science Fiction Convention or Worldcon is held around this time each year.  This year it is called Sasquan (#73) and begins next Wednesday and runs through until the 23rd in Spokane Washington. The Hugo Awards ceremony is next Saturday night (August 22) and you will be able to watch it live here.
