He penned numerous short stories, among them “Nightfall”, which in was voted by the Science Fiction Writers of America the best short bovedaas fiction story of all time, a title many still honor.

His other series’ may be different, but for the “Robot” books, his style is approachable, but insightful. Further, we must perpetually endeavor to overcome our fears as a society here symbolized by the perpetual agoraphobia the residents of the caves of steel suffer from in order to advance and better ourselves.
Naturally, the latter are less than thrilled with this, and thus we have a sort cold war between the two I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would.
