Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
Asimov at his spectacular best

This outstanding collection of vintage and never-before-collected Asimov is a stunning showcase for one of science fiction’s undisputed masters. Introduced by Asimov himself, it features such tales as Little Lost Robot, one of the most inspired stories in the Robot series, The Feeling of Power, anticipating by twenty years the invention of the pocket computer, and The Last Question -- which Asimov himself chooses as his finest story.

"Here -- and I do not qualify -- is excellence . . . contains two instant classics"
The Times

"Asimov’s stories continue to fascinate . . . he writes . . . with cleverness and vision"
Literary Review

"The Last Question . . . is a brilliant and logical exposition of what might happen when the universe runs down"
Manchester Evening News

"A collection from one of the outstanding science fiction writers. This is real quality"
Oxford Mail
