National Science Fiction Day

Looks like we missed it. Only one of our staffers caught this before it got really late. So sad that we let this one slip passed us like an asteroid whizzing by the Earth. I think for the most part a lot of folks probably didn’t know there was such as thing as National Science Fiction Day. Yes, Charlotte, National Science Fiction Day is unofficially celebrated by many science fiction fans in the United States on January 2, a date that was chosen to correspond with the official birthdate of famed science fiction writer Isaac Asimov. While not an official holiday of any sort (in the sense that it is not recognized or declared by any government), National Science Fiction Day is given some degree of credence by its recognition by organizations such as the Hallmark Channel and by the Scholastic Corporation. Mark it on your calendars for next year!
