YES! *ahem* Love Asimov. He's among my favourite writers. I prefer his short stories to his novels, though The Gods Themselves is fantastic. I dunno if I have the patience to read Foundation again. Smile Someone mentioned Nightfall. That might have been the first Asimov short story I ever read. I should go back and re-read that. It's been a while.

Asimov also had a thing for explaining science and maths stuff in a way non-science/math majors could understand. A valuable gift, says the long-time English major. Smile
