We really can’t blame you if you’ve never heard about Science Fiction Day, but in the last few years it has become a very popular and unique event marked on every science fiction fan’s calendar. Although this day is celebrated in order to honor the day Isaac Asimov was born, the fact is that nobody (not even himself, as we can read in his memoirs) really knew the exact day of his birth!

While Asimov was one of the most prominent science fiction writers of the last century, fans usually like to show their appreciation to Science Fiction Day by reading books from authors such as Philip K. Dick or Kurt Vonnegut, but also by having a movie marathon. Films like Ridley Scott’s Alien, Stanley Kubrick’s 2001 or, more recently, Garth Jennings’ The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, are watched one after another, making this day one to remember.
