A list of the well-known and highly awarded authors of the Science fiction genre. In defining Science fiction here, I am sticking to Science fiction only, and not to fantasy stories, unless they leak into Science fiction in some way.
I'm certain I'm missing quite a few people here, and I intend to include awards and most important works as well.
Feel free to nudge me with other info that I might be missing.
