Biographical / Historical

In 1966, the Science Fiction Writers of America (SFWA) began their "Nebula Awards", which was a voting-based award for the best works of science fiction published in the last year. The award-winning pieces would be put into a single volume of the "Nebula Awards" publication. However, SFWA wanted to acknowledge pieces writen prior to this 1966 starting date. Thus, in 1971, the SFWA created Science Fiction Hall of Fame, an anthology of high-quality work recognized by the SFWA published prior to 1966. The first three volumes, labeled volumes 1, 2A and 2B, all were anthologies of pre-Nebula work. After this, several more volumes were published, but they included some early Nebula winners and thus seperated themselves from the original concept.
