    I'm more a fan of his non-fiction work than his fiction work.

    Any fans of Asimov here?

      I have read many of Asimov's fiction "Robot's Rebellion" and such but I have never read any of his non-fiction.  What would you recommend.

        His essay books on scientific topics are pretty good. Unfortunatly libraries seem to be de-accessioning them, but you might be able to get them via interlibrary loan.

        Take a look at View From A Height, The Solar System and Back and The Planet That Wasn't for starters.

      I read "I, Robot" long before the movie came out. Still one of my favorite books.

    Big fan here as well. Love his work. He inspired a lot of my science fiction writing. When I was young I heard that he could type 100 wpm. That became my first goal in writing. Now time for the quality. wink

    Euclids fifth and some other of his essays dealing with scientific problems.I prefer his collection of Short  Stories though,because of my literary background.
