Go To

First published by Isaac Asimov in 1969, this Science Fiction Genre Anthology collects twenty of Dr Asimov's stories, written between 1940 and 1970. The introduction invites the reader to compare the writing styles of each story, since "Nightfall (1941)" is widely considered his best work, but Dr Asimov hopes to see that his writing has improved in the decades since he began. Each story is prefaced by an introduction, usually describing Dr Asimov's personal history and how it related to writing the story in question. Most of all, he includes information on what had inspired him to try one concept or another.

Urania republished this book in three parts; issues #568, #569, and #570.
