About the Author

Isaac Asimov was born in Petrovichi, Russia, on January 2, 1920. His family emigrated to the United States in 1923 and settled in Brooklyn, New York, where they owned and operated a candy store. Asimov became a naturalized U.S. citizen at the age of eight. As a youngster he discovered his talent show more for writing, producing his first original fiction at the age of eleven. He went on to become one of the world's most prolific writers, publishing nearly 500 books in his lifetime. Asimov was not only a writer; he also was a biochemist and an educator. He studied chemistry at Columbia University, earning a B.S., M.A. and Ph.D. In 1951, Asimov accepted a position as an instructor of biochemistry at Boston University's School of Medicine even though he had no practical experience in the field. His exceptional intelligence enabled him to master new systems rapidly, and he soon became a successful and distinguished professor at Columbia and even co-authored a biochemistry textbook within a few years. Asimov won numerous awards and honors for his books and stories, and he is considered to be a leading writer of the Golden Age of science fiction. While he did not invent science fiction, he helped to legitimize it by adding the narrative structure that had been missing from the traditional science fiction books of the period. He also introduced several innovative concepts, including the thematic concern for technological progress and its impact on humanity. Asimov is probably best known for his Foundation series, which includes Foundation, Foundation and Empire, and Second Foundation. In 1966, this trilogy won the Hugo award for best all-time science fiction series. In 1983, Asimov wrote an additional Foundation novel, Foundation's Edge, which won the Hugo for best novel of that year. Asimov also wrote a series of robot books that included I, Robot, and eventually he tied the two series together. He won three additional Hugos, including one awarded posthumously for the best non-fiction book of 1995, I. Asimov. "Nightfall" was chosen the best science fiction story of all time by the Science Fiction Writers of America. In 1979, Asimov wrote his autobiography, In Memory Yet Green. He continued writing until just a few years before his death from heart and kidney failure on April 6, 1992. (Bowker Author Biography) show less

Short biography
Because of the wide number of topics that he wrote about, 9 of the 10 major categories of the Dewey Decimal Classification, Asimov was jocularly known as "The World's Greatest Expert."
Isaac Asimov (January 2, 1920 – April 6, 1992) was an American writer and professor of biochemistry at Boston University. He was known for his works of science fiction and popular science. Asimov was a prolific writer who wrote or edited more than 500 books and an estimated 90,000 letters and postcards.

Asimov wrote hard science fiction. Along with Robert A. Heinlein and Arthur C. Clarke, Asimov was considered one of the "Big Three" science fiction writers during his lifetime. Asimov's most famous work is the "Foundation" series, the first three books of which won the one-time Hugo Award for "Best All-Time Series" in 1966. His other major series are the "Galactic Empire" series and the Robot series. The Galactic Empire novels are set in earlier history of the same fictional universe as the Foundation series. Later, with Foundation and Earth (1986), he linked this distant future to the Robot stories, creating a unified "future history" for his stories much like those pioneered by Robert A. Heinlein and previously produced by Cordwainer Smith and Poul Anderson. He also wrote hundreds of short stories, including the social science fiction novelette "Nightfall", which in 1964 was voted the best short science fiction story of all time by the Science Fiction Writers of America. Asimov wrote the Lucky Starr series of juvenile science-fiction novels using the pen name Paul French.

Asimov also wrote mysteries and fantasy, as well as much nonfiction. Most of his popular science books explain concepts in a historical way, going as far back as possible to a time when the science in question was at its simplest stage. Examples include Guide to Science, the three-volume set Understanding Physics, and Asimov's Chronology of Science and Discovery. He wrote on numerous other scientific and non-scientific topics, such as chemistry, astronomy, mathematics, history, biblical exegesis, and literary criticism.

He was president of the American Humanist Association. The asteroid (5020) Asimov, a crater on the planet Mars, a Brooklyn elementary school, Honda's humanoid robot, ASIMO, and four literary awards are named in his honor.

Reviews

I don't think there is anything I could possibly add in terms of a review. These books are considered, by many, to be some of the best Sci/Fi ever written. The only interesting thing I would add is I read an article somewhere that said Mr. Asimov started these books after just finishing a read of "Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire" by Gibbons. That makes complete sense as the books sort of map to the fall of the Roman Empire. At any rate, great SCI/FI books for folks that like that sort of thing.… (more)

Do not go into the Foundation series expecting a pure and simple science-fiction set of books. The series develops around themes like sociopolitics, human development, the rise and fall of civilizations, the uniqueness of the individual against the predictability of the masses and more. It is a complex story and the saga spans through thousands of years. A must read for fans of science-fiction but also for the ones that enjoy psychohistory and more human focused topics. Not a book for all tastes considering the lack of action but certainly a good choice for those whose minds enjoy imagining the future of humanity and its possibilities.… (more)

The famous author's self-review of snippets from his first 100 books... not among his best, which began to look ever more churned-out in his later years, during which he wrote hundreds more.

Discontinuous novel made up of four novelettes glued together. It did not stand the test of time. Had I read it as a child I may have overlooked its shortcomings, but at 45 my standards are set a bit higher than a pompous, mysoginistic pastiche about guys smoking cigars and scheming against each other. Its not like I have anything against sciencey, telling-not-showing, verbous sci-fi where women doing sciencey things are an exception. It's just that Stanisław Lem did way better, not to talk about how awesome some of Asimov's other novels and short stories are: The Gods Themselves, or whatever has a robot in it, are a good example.
It's a pity, because I really wanted to like this one. However, one third into it I knew how it would develop and my interest plummeted. I was not wrong. The formula established in the first chapter is repeated over and over again, until we have it thoroughly hammered in our heads that psycho-history is akin to clairvoyance and that our guys are gonna overcome.

VERY MILD SPOILERS AHEAD

It's a pity, also, because some ideas are fascinating - with a somewhat less heavy hand, psycho-history may be compared to macro-economics, and the story displays the double-blind experiment principle as applied to a whole society for hundreds of years.
However, the lack of character development (generations follow each other without any single character having time to do much more than the infamous smoke-and-scheme) makes for a dreary reading, in absence of other narrative graces. Hari Seldon doesn't count, as he appears mostly as a holographic un-dead grandpa.
An example of lack of narrative graces: the fact that 1000 years are set, at the start of the novel, as the expected dark age before the Empire rises from its ashes, makes it only more frustrating when the novel ends in medias res.
I may go on, but I think I made my point. Possibly the worst thing written by Asimov that I ever read.
