Isaac Asimov

Have been re reading The foundation by Isaacs Asimov, haven’t read it since I was 14 years old and totally forgot just how brilliant author this man was. Am enjoying my re education into his world’s again.

Asimov is widely considered a master of hard science fiction and, along with Robert A. Heinlein and Arthur C. Clarke, he was considered one of the “Big Three” science fiction writers during his lifetime. Asimov’s most famous work is the Foundation Series; his other major series are the Galactic Empire series and the Robot series.

Asimov was one of the most prolific writers of all time, having written or edited more than 500 books and he was a long-time member and vice president of Mensa International, albeit reluctantly; he described some members of that organization as “brain-proud and aggressive about their IQs”. LOL!
