Publisherís Blurb Ė Lower Cover
GOLD is Isaac Asimovís first original collection of science fiction in over a decade. It is also his last science fiction collection, one containing all of his uncollected SF stories that have never before appeared in book form.

GOLD is the final and crowning achievement of the fifty-year career of science fictionís transcendent genius, the world-famous author who defined the field of SF for its practitioners, for its millions of readers, and for the world at large. The stories collected here range from the humorous to the profound, for Asimov was engaged until the end of his days in the work of redefining and expanding the boundaries of the literature he loved, and indeed, helped create.

At the heart of this unique collection is the title story, Gold, a moving and revealing drama about a writer who gambles everything on a chance at immortality -- a gamble Asimov himself made. And won. 'Asimovís 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
