This is, I believe, the third book by Asimov I ever purchased, and my memory of reading it for the first time is unusually vivid. It’s one of the books which built Asimov’s reputation, back when it was published as a series of stories mostly in the Golden Age Astounding under John Campbell. For that matter, these are among the stories that made the Golden Age golden.   Asimov: The Robot Stories & The Foundation During the last months I embarked on an amazing journey: to read, one by one, all Asimov ‘s books part of the Robot, Empire and Foundation series. The experience requires quite some time, since there are more than 18 books, some with more than pages, but the experience is very rewarding.

From A to Z, fifty great science fiction themes are brought to live in short stories by the masters. Alien worlds, bionic persons, computers, extraterrestrials, hyperspace, invasion of Earth, mad scientists, other dimensions, robots, time travel—these are the subjects of timeless tales from authors old and new: Brian Aldiss, Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury, Arthur C. Clarke, Gordon R. Dickson.   There were many more stories like this in the book that explore the meaning of humanity. I, Robot is one of the rare books that established a detailed and convincing world complete with unique laws of its own, one that incorporated philosophy into science fiction, and one that was a masterpiece when it was first written and would still remain a Cited by: 1.
