What I will be remembered for are the Foundation Trilogy and the Three Laws of Robotics. What I want to be remembered for is no one book, or no dozen books. Any single thing I have written can be paralleled or even surpassed by something someone else has done. However, my total corpus for quantity, quality and variety can be duplicated by no one else. That is what I want to be remembered for.


I thought i would put one of the Grand Masters of Science Fiction on this board, I hope there are fans out there who love or at least "really like" this particular pioneer.

He didn't miss me, I just discovered 500 authors at once, which means I have to leave some out early on in my reading career. I know that you'll think I should start with him. While others will think I should start with Heinlein. And others Ellison. So I'm going to disappoint someone. I've said it before though, everything is eventual for me in the reading world.

I hear ya, so many books, possibly not enough time.
Though Id never recomend him unless of course the person in question really digs Science Fiction, or else the innevitable "what is he talking about" or "huh" and my favorite "I dont get it" then back to Danielle Steel they go.
