In the late 1930s a new young talent began to make his mark on the science fiction scene with a succession of outstanding stories un the various SF magazines of the time. His name: Isaac Asimov. He was later to become a world reknowned as the author of such classics of modern science fiction as the epic FOUNDATION trilogy and the robot stories in which he formulated the now famous Three Laws of Robotics.

THE EARLY ASIMOV (published in three volumes in Panther Science Fiction) is an usurpassed showcase of the story-telling brilliance of the young Asimov. Each story is prefaced by Dr Asimov with fascinatng biographical details of how and when he came to write it as well as his own critical evaluation of it. The result is a doubly rich science fiction treat: a collection of tales that makes engrossing entertainmentb in its own right and, in addition gives the reader a first-hand look at the development of the twentieth century's undisputed Grand Master of science fiction
