This summer the US Postal Service will issue a set of stamps featuring science fiction writers reports Gene Mierzejewski in a post at Amazingstoriesmag.com, who read the item in Linns Stamp News (subscription required) —
My heart couldn’t help skipping a beat a couple of weeks ago when Linn’s Stamp News — the New York Times of stamp collectors — published a roundup story about upcoming stamps. With little elaboration, the story mentioned that a set of stamps featuring science fiction writers was on the USPS schedule this year.
Another source says there will be five designs in the set.
Mierzejewski speculates at length about who might be the honorees.
At one time the rule was no living person could appear on U.S. postage, but that rule was eliminated in 2011. Who do you want to see commemorated?
