Review: The Best Science Fiction of Isaac Asimov

User Review  - Richp - Goodreads

This is Asimov's favorite short work that wasn't very popular. Not bad, but definitely not his best, and accompanied by his inflated ego, as is usual. Read full review

About the author (1986)

To list Isaac Asimov's honors, as to list his books, would be excessive. Let it simply be noted that Isaac Asimov was the most famous, most honored, most widely read, and most beloved science fiction author of all time. In his five decades as an author, he wrote more than four hundred books, won every award his readers and colleagues could contrive to give him, and provided pleasure and insight to millions. He died in 1992, still at work.
