The next generation of science fiction talent hit San Diego this week for the Writers and Illustrators of the Future Awards , a competition to find the most creative sci-fi minds. This premiere contest was created by L. Ron Hubbard in 1983 to discover writers and illustrators who had previously gone unnoticed. Host Tom Fudge discusses the history of science fiction and how it is influenced by current events.
