9780006482031: Magic: The Final Fantasy Collection

A final collection of original short fantasy stories assembles previously uncollected tales, stories about the two-centimeter demon Azael, several fairy tales, and a humorous adventure about Batman's old age from the grandmaster of science fiction.

Isaac Asimov and science fiction are one and the same to millions of readers. He was the field's transcendent genius, its reigning prophet, its genial patriarch, and its most prolific author. But Asimov also wrote fantasy, and invariably of an enduring quality. Magic is his final original collection, containing all of his uncollected fantasy stories that have never before appeared in book form. Wry and witty, they carry his unique, personal stamp of rationalism and logic.

These stories are fascinating musings of a wide-ranging intelligence, discussing everything from Tolkien to Spielberg, from unicorns to King Arthur. Magic is the last word on fantasy by the renowned science fiction author.

Though Isaac Asimov had fun writing all his works, these are the stories he wrote for fun. They are an essential part of his irreplaceable legacy.

From the Back Cover:

Isaac Asimov and science fiction are one and the same to millions of readers. He was the field's transcendent genius, its reigning prophet and its most prolific author. But Asimov also wrote fantasy. 'Magic' is his final original collection, containing all of his fantasy stories that have never before appeared in book form. Wry and witty, they carry his unique, personal stamp of rationalism and logic.

This final collection of Asimov's best loved fantasy stories assembles his most popular tales of the two centimetre demon Azazel, with his tiny red horns and technological expertise so far beyond our own as to seem like magic.

'Magic' is the last word on fantasy by the renowned science fiction author. Though Isaac Asimov had fun writing all his works, these are stories he wrote for fun. They are an essential part of his irreplaceable legacy.

"Asimov's career was one of the most formidable in science fiction"
THE TIMES

"A talent of galactic proportions"
CHICAGO TRIBUNE

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