This is quite possibly the greatest collection of science fiction short stories ever assembled! Isaac Asimov is a legend for a good reason: he's a great storyteller. He is a master of using old story archetypes and transforming them for a new generation as well as creating new stories that prey on our worst technological fears. And, he does it all so well without resorting to using weird future technology or realities, unlike some sci-fi writers. He does it all with science as we know it and science that may well exist in the future.
This collection contains what may be the best Asimov short story ever: "The Last Question." This is the short story every sci-fi enthusiast should read, if only to answer the ever-looming question of, "Why should we continue to advance technology?"
