Brian Aldiss, Grand Master of Science Fiction, discussed his life and works at USF's 4th Science Fiction Symposium on March 18, 2008. The Symposium was sponsored by the Humanities Institute and USF Library and funded in-part by a Florida Humanities Council Grant and the National Endowment for the Humanities. Brian Aldiss, a multiple winner of Hugo, Nebula and British Science Fiction Association Awards, as well as a recipient of the Jules Verne and Kurd Lasswitz awards, has published over 80 books. Two of his works were adapted for films: Steven Spielberg's Artificial Intelligence in 2001 and Roger Corman's Frankenstein Unbound in 1990. Aldiss was elected Grand Master by the Science Fiction Writers of America in 2000 and was awarded an OBE (Order of the British Empire) in 2005.
