Marooned Off Vesta and Anniversary is a combination of two stories, the second one of which was written as a sequel on the preceding story’s twentieth anniversary of its publication.

The stories are more or less very simple in their structure. This short story collection was a mixed bag, and not up to Asimov’s usual standards.

Thanks for telling us about the problem. I think that Isaac Asimov tries to use factual science in his stories, but all of these stories were written before anybody had even actually walked on the moon, and few satellites had been beyond the moon. There is also another reason why I liked this duo for they are never interested in each other’s company beyond the lifetime of the mystery, a purely professional working arrangement is how they proceed.

These required a deep knowledge of astronomy that I’m sure lead to “aha” moments for the scientifically well-versed but surely went over my head. The eccentric detective caricature here is bestowed upon Dr.

The Key is a well devised mystery tale, which also discusses about a certain group of extremists with their idea about of reducing the global population by ninety-nine percent through killing. All the stories are wonderful, although some need to be given special admiration.

This book collects together his best mystery short stories, the greater part of which have an Isac theme. Wendell Urth, the eccentric solver laa the crimes, albeit often only appearing on stage in the final couple of pages.

Their stories were always based on fundamental, potential, real science, making their work interesting in many ways. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Worth reading for the gems but there’s a few duffers to be glossed over although a better knowledge of the science involved might improve their reading. The end result is positive.

The two combine together to exhibit the element of mystery. Here, he tries his hand on science fiction mysteries.

I am not sure why, but I have never read any Asimov books before. At times it felt like reading Sherlock Holmes, albeit based in a science-fictional scenario. Asimov was a long-time member and Vice President of Mensa International, albeit reluctantly; he described some members of that organization as “brain-proud and aggressive about their IQs” He took more joy in being president armonioosa the American Humanist Association. This collection ends with a few really good stories but quite a few are mediocre which drags down my rating of this book.


The other stories are all stand-alone and quite thought provoking. Asimov wrote the Lucky Starr series of juvenile science-fiction novels using the pen name Paul French.

Mass Market Paperbackpages. Asimov loved jeux de motsand had a tendency to be a little too silly with them, but here he gets it right; Zsimov enjoyed showing off his versatility, and even though he’s best known ,a his SF and popular science, he could do other things too. Anyone who says Asimov can’t write should give these a go and it might change their mind.
