I like his style of writing and his different times his storys are set. The title Isaac Asimov Presents the Best Crime Stories of the 19th Century is a bit misleading as many of the stories are written by different authors. I still loved the book and recommend it to everyone. One person found this helpful.

in Books Literature & Fiction Short Stories & Anthologies Anthologies. My first Issac Asimov book i read was puzzles of the black widows and after that I read the rest of the series and was hooked on Asimov's works. I like his style of writing and his different times his storys are set.

Most of Asimov's popularized science books explain scientific concepts in a historical way, going as far backĀ . The asteroid 5020 Asimov, the magazine Asimov's Science Fiction, a Brooklyn, NY elementary school, and two different Isaac Asimov Awards are named in his honor.

Most of Asimov's popularized science books explain scientific concepts in a historical way, going as far back as possible to a time when the science in question was at its simplest stage. He often provides nationalities, birth dates, and death dates for the scientists he mentions, as well as etymologies and pronunciation guides for technical terms.

Another "best of" collection, with a particularly tenuous premise: twelve stories, ng the "first appearance of an interesting idea" (though even here Asimov quibbles a bit). More by charles g. The mammoth book of golden age science fiction.

Not science fiction in the way we would think of it. Fifteen short stories from around the world; most were written in first person and near the end of the 19th century. There is a short biography of each author that precedes each story. I found the stories interesting but not very entertaining. Guy de Mauspassant was undoubtedly the standout, and I would give honorable mention to Frank Stockton, Robert Milne, and J.-H. Rosny.

There is an introduction by Asimov which contains his thoughts on when science fiction perhaps first came to us and, what constitutes science fiction. Asimov's belief in man becoming more ordered and perfect through naturalism comes out even in the few pages he uses here. I find it typical of a great many noted authors that they are either, humanists, naturalists, nihilistic, head cases, or all; and it is the same common theme with these authors.
Wish you well and Lord's blessings
