Isaac Asimov (1920–1992) was an American writer of science fiction and popular science and professor of biochemistry at Boston University. A prolific writer, he wrote or edited more than 500 books. Along with Robert A. Heinlein and Arthur C. Clarke, he is considered one of the "Big Three" science fiction writers. Asimov's most famous work is the Foundation Series; his other major series are the Galactic Empire series and the Robot series.
In this deeply personal volume, Asimov discusses his work and reprints 24 out-of-the-way stories and provides his biographical commentary on each. "They form a unique autobiography from the early '50s right on up to the present."--jacket.
