The(Colorado) Author’s Hall of Fame is dedicated to recognizing and preserving the history about the accomplishments of past and present authors who have created and published books.

The Author’s Hall of Fame ensures that their insight and visionary achievements will not be forgotten.
This year the inductees include legendary Science Fiction writer Robert A. Heinlein. Often called the "dean of science fiction writers," he was among the first to emphasize scientific accuracy in his fiction and became a pioneer of the subgenre of hard science fiction. He was an American science-fiction author, aeronautical engineer, and Naval officer creating 32 published novels, 59 short stories, and 16 collections during his life. Four films, two television series, several episodes of a radio series, and a board game have been derived directly from his work. In addition, Heinlein edited an anthology of other writers' Science Fiction short stories.
