Read full description of the books The Robot Collection:

Meet Asimov and his Robots! This big, fat volume contains Asimov's two celebrated robot novels,'The Caves of Steel' and the 'The Naked Sun', starring interplanetary detective Elijah Baley and every Asimov robot story. It will delight robot fans and those who love entertaining, puzzling and stimulating tales. Published simultaneously with the master's third full-length novel, 'The Robots of Dawn', 'The Robot Collection' is the first one-volume anthology to contain all of Asimov's robot fiction and is a tribute to the skill and imagination which have placed Isaac Asimov among the all-time greats of science fiction. He is the author of the unshakable 'Three Laws of Robotics':I. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm. II. A robot must obey the orders given it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law. III. A robot must protect it's own existence, as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

Read information about the author

Ebook The Robot Collection read Online! Isaac Asimov was a Russian-born, American author, a professor of biochemistry, and a highly successful writer, best known for his works of science fiction and for his popular science books.

Professor Asimov is generally considered the most prolific writer of all time, having written or edited more than 500 books and an estimated 90,000 letters and postcards. He has works published in nine of the ten major categories of the Dewey Decimal System (lacking only an entry in the 100s category of Philosophy).

Asimov is widely considered a master of the science-fiction genre and, along with Robert A. Heinlein and Arthur C. Clarke, was considered one of the "Big Three" science-fiction writers during his lifetime. Asimov's most famous work is the Foundation Series; his other major series are the Galactic Empire series and the Robot series, both of which he later tied into the same fictional universe as the Foundation Series to create a unified "future history" for his stories much like those pioneered by Robert A. Heinlein and previously produced by Cordwainer Smith and Poul Anderson. He penned numerous short stories, among them "Nightfall", which in 1964 was voted by the Science Fiction Writers of America the best short science fiction story of all time, a title many still honor. He also wrote mysteries and fantasy, as well as a great amount of nonfiction. Asimov wrote the Lucky Starr series of juvenile science-fiction novels using the pen name Paul French.

Most of Asimov's popularized science books explain scientific concepts in a historical way, going as far back as possible to a time when the science in question was at its simplest stage. He often provides nationalities, birth dates, and death dates for the scientists he mentions, as well as etymologies and pronunciation guides for technical terms. Examples include his Guide to Science, the three volume set Understanding Physics, and Asimov's Chronology of Science and Discovery.

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 of the American Humanist Association. The asteroid 5020 Asimov, the magazine Asimov's Science Fiction, a Brooklyn, NY elementary school, and two different Isaac Asimov Awards are named in his honor.
