Beschreibung

"You may have noticed that I speak of pocket computers. The story was written in 1957 before there were any pocket computers, and now there are. So, it's a little prediction that I managed to make. Of course, the pocket computers I thought of weren't quite like the ones they have now, but that's a detail." - Isaac AsimovMore than 50 years after publishing his first story, Hugo Award-winning author Asimov remains one of the great names in science fiction. Almost single-handedly he transformed the field from the romantic and Gothic legacy of Jules Verne and Edgar Rice Burroughs into the rational, clear-minded genre that exists today. In such classics as The Foundation Quartet, Asimov captured imaginations with tight, intricate plots set in distant but believable futures. Many of his innovations, such as the Three Laws of Robotics, are now stock devices in science fiction writing and films, and his ability to tap into his extensive knowledge of science and technology gives his fiction a veracity unmatched by any other writer in the field.This selection of some of Asimov's most enduring and unforgettable stories is read by the author himself. These vintage tales encompass the full range of Asimov's versatility, while displaying his puckish sense of humor.

Hörerrezensionen

Hilfreichste

humorvolle Sci-Fi mit Tiefgang

Isaak Asimov lest hier eine Auswahl seiner eigenen Lieblingsgeschichten. Das merkt man beim Vortragen genau. Er liest sie liebevoll und pointiert. Nicht wie ein geschulter Vortragskünstler, aber das ist gerade schön, den sein Akzent ist viel zu eigen und reizvoll als das er hinter Theaterbetonung versteckt werden sollte. Ich mag seine Geschichten und seine Stimme ist sympathisch und läst mich noch mehr zum Fan werden!!!
