9780002241397: The Complete Stories Volume I: v. 1

First published fifteen years ago, shortly after his death, inside this collection are some of the finest short stories of science fiction writing from one of the genre’s greatest writers, Isaac Asimov.

Isaac Asimov was the Grand Master of the Science Fiction Writers of America, the founder of robot ethics, and one of the world's most prolific authors of fiction and non-fiction. The Good Doctor's short fiction has been enjoyed by millions for more than half a century. Now the definitive Asimov collection is underway with Volume One of The Complete Stories.

Many of these stories are classics of the genre, and the last, 'The Last Question', the absolute personal favourite of Asimov himself. Always entertaining and thought provoking, these stories display Asimov's mastery of the short story form. He remains supreme as the thinking person's science fiction writer.

From the Back Cover:

The definitive collection of short stories by Isaac Asimov, supreme master of the science fiction genre, continues with Volume Two of 'The Complete Stories'. The Good Doctor was always ahead of his time and his work stands today as the clearest expression of our collective hopes and fears for the future. But the ever expanding popularity of his stories with young and old readers alike is explained by their wit, zest and human interest.

Herein are 23 compelling stories, ranging from the very surprising heart-tugger 'The Ugly Little Boy' to the overwhelming vision of 'Nightfall', often voted the best science fiction story of all time. In these stories Asimov’s vivid awareness of the potential of technology is translated into human dilemmas that are more relevant today than ever before.

“Asimov’s career was one of the most formidable in science fiction”
THE TIMES

“Asimov displayed one of the most dynamic imaginations in science fiction”
DAILY TELEGRAPH

“A publishing project that ranks with the building of the pyramids and summons proof, if it was ever needed, that Asimov’s stature in the field is richly deserved”
LOCUS
