Isaac Asimov

Today is the anniversary of the death in 1992 of Isaac Asimov. He is one of the first science fiction authors I ever read and a long-time favorite. I started the kids off with the Norby books while they were quite young.

Bill Moyers interviewed Isaac Asimov, and that interview is on youtube in 3 parts. part 1:

part 2, part 3

BBC has an interview here. The Mother Jones interview is here.

There is a comprehensive collection of resources here. There is a short biography and a bibliography here. He has an entry at the Internet Movie Data Base and a Facebook page.

FreeSFOnline has a couple of his stories. You can listen to Nightfall here. The Last Question can be read online. The Feeling of Power can be read here. This site has the full text of Profession.

Asimov was an atheist.
