Chemist Isaac Asimov was acclaimed for his fiction and nonfiction writing. As a Russian Jewish immigrant, Asimov told stories from an early age. Among the most celebrated is his Foundation Trilogy, which earned numerous awards and led him to become one of the most widely respected authors of the twentieth century. He expanded on some of his early ideas in novels and stories, including his beloved Robot novels. Asimov made science accessible and entertaining for everyone and is credited with popularizing "hard science fiction," which attempts a realistic imagining of humans using science and technology within imaginary worlds and universes.

Isaac Asimov (1920-1992), one of the most popular and influential American authors of the twentieth century, sparked the imagination of generations of writers. His Foundation trilogy paved the way for science fiction that was more speculative and philosophical than had been previously seen in the genre, and his book I, Robot and his story "The Bicentennial Man" have been made into popular movies. First published as a teenager in John W. Campbell's groundbreaking science-fiction magazine Astounding, Asimov published over two hundred books during his lifetime. While most prolific writers tend to concentrate almost exclusively on a single genre, Asimov was a polymath who wrote widely on a variety of subjects. He authored mysteries, autobiographies, histories, satires, companions to Shakespeare, children's books on science, and collections of bawdy limericks. A lifelong atheist, he nevertheless wrote more than a half dozen books on the Bible. Asimov's varied interests establish him as a premier public intellectual, one who was frequently called upon to clarify debates in science, in history, and on the effects of technology on the modern age. Conversations with Isaac Asimov collects interviews with a man considered to be-along with Robert Heinlein, A. E. van Vogt, and Arthur C. Clarke-a founder of modern science fiction. Despite this, Asimov is perhaps best known for his many books of popular science writing. Carl Sagan once described Asimov as the greatest explainer of his age, and this talent made Asimov a natural for the interview form. His manner is always crisp and lucid, his tone always engaging, and his comments always enlightening. Carl Freedman, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, is professor of English at Louisiana State University. He is the author of Critical Theory and Science Fiction, The Incomplete Projects: Marxism, Modernity, and the Politics of Culture, and George Orwell: A Study in Ideology and Literary Form.

This anthology opens with Connie Willis’s highly amusing and Hugo-Award-winning novella, “Inside Job,” and closes with Robert Silverberg’s poignant Hugo-winning novelette, “Enter a Soldier. Later: Enter Another.” In the “locations” between these captivating stories you’ll find exciting and richly rewarding tales by some of today’s best-known SF writers and several of its most talented newcomers. Each of these stories has something that Asimov’s is rightly famous for—strong and deeply moving characters that face their futures head on. Whether they’re a jazz musician on a starship, the spirit of H.L. Mencken tangling with a twenty-first century medium, or the new personality of a wayward teenager trying to stake a claim on a body that is and sort of isn’t hers, they must all find their way in uncharted territory. You can join them on their journey. Turn the electronic page and enter a future. A little later, you can enter another.
