Cinema legend Orson Welles did an awful lot -- with a single event -- to help put science fiction on the map: as the Halloween episode for The Mercury Theatre on the Air back in 1938, Welles staged a radio broadcast of The War of the Worlds, the epic struggle of mankind's near-end at the hands of the invading Martians.  His unique narrative choice -- to stage a radio broadcast of the invasion during a usual radio broadcast of a drama -- caught audiences off-guard, and many called their stations to question whether or not, in fact, Martians had invaded the Earth.  To be honest, there's some controversy as to whether or not the dramatization was as misinterpreted as has been reported, but it was…
