Abstract:
Announced yesterday by Google, their "Project Glass;" eyeglasses that enable a wearer to place calls, schedule meetings, take pictures, basically anything you can do now on smartphones and such devices, all controlled by voice; is one more example of how science fiction vision is indeed becoming tomorrow's reality. And what of other science fiction predictions? "Computers have been improving beyond the wildest dreams of science fiction," states J. Storrs Hall, PhD, originator of the nanotechnology Utility Fog concept and keynote speaker at the upcoming Writers of the Future Awards Ceremony on April 15 at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre in Los Angeles. "Robots are busting out all over. Virtually every home has a visiplate that would make Hugo Gernsback's jaw drop."

Writers of the Future: As Science Fiction Becomes Science Fact: Once envisioned through the eyes of writers such as Isaac Asimov, Hugo Gersnsback, Robert Heinlein and L. Ron Hubbard, science fiction is indeed becoming science fact

Hollywood, CA | Posted on April 9th, 2012

And what of space travel? Hall is a proponent of replacing roads and internal combustion vehicles with flying cars. "They are some of the milder innovations that nanotechnology could make not only possible," he states, "both economical and safe as well. Another is space travel."

Hall, whose inspiration for science sprang from the science fiction he read in his youth, will be speaking to this year's winners of the L. Ron Hubbard Writers and Illustrators of the Future Contests on their role to pave the way for science with their vision of tomorrow.

Conceived by L. Ron Hubbard to provide a means for the aspiring writer or artist to have his works seen and acknowledged, the Writers of the Future has proven itself to be every bit a successful launching pad now with over 650 writers and artists having walked on stage to be recognized.

Each writing and illustrating contest winner will be presented their trophy by contest judges at the ceremony and receive combined cash prizes and royalties of over $30,000. A time capsule with predictions from a quarter century ago from top scientists and science fiction writers on what life will be like in the year 2012 will be opened and the contents displayed for all to see following the ceremony.

The Writers of the Future writing contest (http://www.writersofthefuture.com) was initiated by L. Ron Hubbard in 1983 to provide a means for aspiring writers to get that much-needed break. Due to the success of the Writing Contest, the companion Illustrators of the Future Contest was created in 1988.

The intensive mentoring process has proven very successful. Past winners of the Writing Contest have published over 750 novels, 3,500 short stories and winners of the Illustrating Contest have had their art published in more than 500 books and magazines, with 4,500 illustrations, 350 comics and over 1.3 million art prints.

Doors open at 6:00 PM and the event starts promptly at 6:30 PM on April 15, 2012 at the historic Wilshire Ebell Theatre, Los Angeles, CA, "renowned for the great diversity of the artists that have graced it stage." www.ebellla.com/theater/index.htm
