SEATTLE, Feb. 23 (UPI) -- The Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame expanded its categories Wednesday and called for nominations for its first honors to be announced in Seattle.

The organization, which bills itself as the world's only science fiction museum, said four people would be honored at a May 6 ceremony. Aside from the usual literature honor, the museum added three other categories--art, media and other--to this year's competition.

The organization, which moved to Seattle last year from Kansas City, Mo., said it will add an exhibit featuring "personal artifacts" and video footage of each Hall of Fame inductee.

Founded in 1996 by investor and philanthropist Paul Allen, previous honorees include sci-fi greats such as Isaac Asimov, H.G. Wells and Ursula LeGuin.
