Extract

(...) I just received an unreviewed copy of ' The best Science-Fiction Stories: 1950'. (Frederic Fell). Somewhat ironic, isn't it? (...)

Russian-born, American-born scientist, Isaac Asimov (1920 - 1992) was one of the most prolific writers of all time, having written or edited more than 500 science fiction books, with a particular talent: giving popular explanations for complex principles.

It was in 1939 that Isaac Asimov began contributing stories to science fiction magazines and, in 1950, he published his first book and one of his greatest works, "Robot".

Despite having a Doctorate of Science from Columbia University since 1947, he preferred to dedicate himself to writing and earning little. However, towards the end of his life, the author often referred to the 1950s as his "golden decade", which makes this letter valuable.
