That Misbegotten Missionary short story is also known as Green Patches and was quite fabulous!

Actually, he expounded "NightFall" and made an entire book out of it. Completing the story. Also, if you're going to "start" with him, you have to start with the "Robot" series, then just follow the Entire 93847598234 book series to the end. I think you can actually find a set that has all the books in order. It'll keep you enthralled from beginning to end.

Go ahead...learn about the zeroth law!

Thanks, I'll do the podcast first then I will keep my eyes open for the other 2 at the used stores.

EDIT: I have one short story of his, Misbegotten Missionary. It's in a collection of short stories with the introduction by Asimov from 1950 and edited by him also. Looks like I also have I, Robot lol!

If you're talking novels, I'm guessing FOUNDATION is the best place to start. Or maybe CAVES OF STEEL.

In a survey, NIGHTFALL was voted the greatest sci-fi short story of all time.
