Here are twelve fascinating, provocative tales of time and space which reveal the unparalleled ingenuity of one of the greatest science fiction writers of all time.
"Marooned Off Vesta", the first fiction Asimov ever published, is a prime example of the versatility of his imagination. Three men in a spaceship only three hundred miles from Vesta have no way to reach it. His well-known "Nightfall" probes the reactions of a planet to the darkness of night which falls only once in two thousand years. And Asimov’s answer to “The Last Question” is so startling that it will never be forgotten. Other stories in this collection include: "C-Chute", "The Martian Way", "The Deep", "The Fun They Had", "The Dead Past", "The Dying Night", "Anniversary", "The Billiard Ball" and "Mirror Image".
