The stories that were too astounding for Astounding!

Pebble in the Sky and The End of Eternity are among the best known of Isaac Asmov's early novels. But what most readers won't know is that both were originally written for – and rejected by – the famous pulp SF magazines of the 1940s and 1950s.

Along with Dr Asimov's fascinating commentary on the revisions and on his working relationships with legendary SF editors John Campbell and Horace Gold, The Alternate Asimovs offers the rare and delightful treat of watching a master of imagination in his workshop.
