    I have very fond memories of Isaac Asimov and especially a number of his famous works The reason why is that going back to my early tentative steps in to reading, I stumbled across a small table top sale and there tucked away in one corner a stack of books The covers instantly caught my eye and as much as the saying goes don t judge a book by its cover I could not help myself Now I must point something out The UK editions of science fiction books of this era had a habit of having garish, eye catching covers often which had no relation to the contents of the book This was one such edition however the cover they chose was from the artist Chris Foss one of my all time favourite artists who to me captured the impossible and limitless imagination of science fiction Something that I see only recently is coming back in to the main stream years later.Now rather than being annoyed that it has no relation I love these covers as to me they sum up the imagination of the author and if anything once I have read the book I would often look at the cover making up my own stories.So yes as you can imagine I bought up the books they were pennies after all and read them all ravenously and that is where not only does my fascination with science come from but also my respect for the classic authors of the golden age of science fiction and the love of science fiction artwork.

    An interesting collection of short stories, some of the better ones I d previously experienced in The Complete Robot so the novelty of reading such good stories was worn off and possibly detracted from my overall enjoyment.The collection also featured some of Asimov s fantasy stories, my first experience of such things, and even though I consider him a good writer of good ideas my eyes just glazed over at the mention of faeries and Avalaon for example I have Fantasy block even with such a man as Isaac Asimov.However overall the collection is exactly what you would expect from science fiction of the 1950s and of Asimov short stories in general a study of humanity with tongue slightly in cheek Not great, not terrible, merely a good and enjoyable book And as bonus reading a couple of attempts at humourous poetry about being a science fiction writer.

    ENGLISH This collection of Asimov s short stories and novellas contains 15 titles published in the fifties The one I liked most was The Dead Past, about seeing the past on a screen, followed by Living Space, one of the first appearances of Everard s Quantum Multiverse in Sci Fi, Satisfaction guaranteed, little known story in the Susan Calvin Robot series, and Jokester, an original story about the origin of human humor The other 11 stories are clearly lower quality, at least for me.ESPA OL Esta colecci n de cuentos y novelas cortas de Asimov contiene 15 t tulos publicados en los a os cincuenta El que m s me gust fue El pasado muerto, sobre c mo ver el pasado en una pantalla, seguido por Espacio Vital, una de las primeras apariciones del Multiverso Cu ntico de Everard en la ciencia ficci n, Satisfacci n garantizada, un cuento poco conocido de la serie de Susan Calvin y los robots, y El chistoso, una historia original sobre el origen del humor humano Las otras 11 historias tienen claramente menor calidad, al menos para m.

    The standout in this quite good collection is definitely Satisfaction Guaranteed , even if it s so 50s that it feels like you need subtitles to understand it US Robots have developed a housework robot, which they are going to field test in the home of one of their employees The action focusses on the uneasy relationship that develops between the robot and the bored housewife, who s plagued with general feelings of helplessness and inadequacy the robot, programmed with the Three Laws and obliged to protect her from anything that might be liable to cause her harm, does its best to address the problem If someone told me it was an adapted version of a Colette short story, I d be prepared to believe them.

    This was my first ever book read by Asimov, and I enjoyed it thoroughly Especially the stories that involved Multivac It really is true, no one spits out story ideas faster then Asimov, and I was especially surprised to find out that he also wrote in verse A very unexpected surprise I look forward to reading other works by this amazing story teller.

    Uno de los t tulos m s mencionados de Asimov, tanto que pens que lo hab a le do hace muchos a os Afortunadamente me equivocaba y no se trata de una relectura Para mi, que aprend los conceptos de la rob tica de la mano de Susan Calvin y conoc los problemas sociales de un Imperio espacial investigando cr menes violentos con un robot por detectiveen fin, que aprend a a disfrutar de la ciencia ficci n con Isaac Asimov leer un libro nuevo cuando pensaba solo repasarlo supone un regalo inesperado a n sabiendo que nunca lograr leer todos los libros que escribi , firm o colabor Con la Tierra nos basta es una colecci n de cuentos alrededor de los temas t picos de Asimov robots, grandes sociedades dominadas por UNIVAC ordenadores enormenmente complejos y potentes , paradojas del avance de la ciencia, etc En todos ellos siempre hay un momento para una sonrisa, una broma, un chiste Ebn algunos todo el cuento es una enorme broma Es Asimov en sus mejores momentos ideal para una primera aproximaci n, perfecto para volver a recuperar el contacto si eres un fan.

    Isaac Asimovs Liebe zu Robotern ist gemeinhin bekannt Sie ist die Grundlage f r einige seiner Faszinierendsten Romane und Kurzgeschichten Besonders die Logik hat es ihm dabei angetan, die Grundlage f r alle Entscheidungen einer Maschine sein muss Zwingend.Trotzdem ist Geliebter Roboter eine Kurzgeschichtensammlung, die sich von vielen anderen des Autors unterscheidet Vor allem, weil sie sich nicht ausschlie lich um Roboter dreht obwohl der Titel das vermuten l sst.So ist es haupts chlich die Idee eines allumfassenden Gro rechners Multivac , die von Asimov in den Mittelpunkt seiner Erz hlungen gestellt wird Horror Visionen von aus heutiger Sicht gar nicht abwegiger Natur erz hlen dabei zum Beispiel von einer Demokratie, die gar keine sein kann Ein einziger W hler bestimmt dabei ber das Schicksal der fiktiven USA von 2008 dabei liefert er eigentlich nur ein paar Antworten auf Fragen, die Multivac noch ben tigt um zu errechnen, wie die Wahl ausgeht.Den Namen erh lt die Geschichte brigens von einer Story, in der ein Roboter hier m sste man ja eigentlich von einem Androiden sprechen zu Testzwecken f r etwa zwei Wochen in das Haus einer ungl cklichen Frau einzieht Er krempelt ihr Leben geh rig um und erweckt sogar, hie und da, den Eindruck echter Gef hle f r seine tempor re Besitzerin Asimov l st das nat rlich bravour s auf und erkl rt alles mit den Gesetzen der Robotik und gerade das ist es, was ein wenig Horror in die Geschichte zaubert, wie ich finde.Das ist aber noch lange nicht alles Zwei echte Exoten durchbrechen Asimovs Muster n mlich auf recht untypische Art Sie haben nahezu nichts mit Technologie zu tun Besonders sticht dabei jene ber das Ende der Welt hervor, f r die Asimov sogar die christliche Mythologie bem ht Die Posaune k ndigt den j ngsten Tag an und der Planet wandelt sich Mit ihm die gro teils wiederauferstandenen Menschen auch, wenn der zust ndige Engel sich noch so sehr bem ht den Ratschluss des Chefs zu ndern Besonders unterhaltsam ist dabei brigens die Art und Weise, wie Asimov die Geschichte erz hlt, beginnt sie doch mit einem Fabriksbesitzer und dessen Vater Und dessen Vater Und alle wollen herstellen, was keiner mehr braucht.Zu guter Letzt sei noch eine Geschichte kurz angerissen, die endlich den Ursprung der Witze auf diesem Planeten kl rt Denn jeder kennt Witze obwohl sie niemand erfunden hat Die Quelle ist jedenfalls verbl ffend und die sie aufdeckende Aufl sung erneut ein kleiner Schauer, der uns ber den R cken l uft.Ja, Geliebter Roboter ist eine wirklich empfehlenswerte Sammlung, die auch mit einigem unerwartetem auftrumpft Selbst jene, die Asimov sonst meiden, k nnten hier f ndig werden auch, wenn ich denen den Kauf des Buchs blo deshalb nicht raten w rde.

    I meant to pick this up a while ago for a readathon, but the small print put me off It was a pretty good read though, and I especially liked the final story Dreaming is a Private Thing That s because it s the story that inspired Bill Holt and his album, Dreamies.But honestly, all of the stories in here are pretty good, and it s got me excited about reading Asimov on the weeks and months to come I have a few of them sitting around on my TBR shelves just waiting for me to get to them, and now I have my Asimov vibe back It s been too long since I read any of his work.Oh, and for the record, my favourite stories were The Dead Past, An Immortal Bard and Dreaming is a Powerful Thing But you could pick out any of these stories at random and still enjoy it.

    I know a lot of people don t like this authors work, especially the short stories, having never read this author before I can tell you I fell in love with the writing.I adore short stories anyway, but there was literally only two in here I d have given 4 instead of 5 stars to, and both of them were only two page each so easily forgiven I read this over the last 5 days at a festival, intriguing and varied stories to keep me interested, but not so overly complex that I couldn t remember what was going on.I see this in shops for 1 all the time, for that price, it s definitely worth a read even if you aren t a short story fan.

    As a selection of stories, i don t consider this book a really good one What i did enjoy a lot were the visions they had in the 50 s about the future Most of the stories happen in the first century of 2000, and the vision of what would be the future computers, robotics, political systems, values, etc is interesting and funny However there are a couple of good ones that i would recommend to read The Dead Past nv Astounding Apr 56 I think this one is the best It is about a machine to see the past, that is controlled by the goverment and it is used to historical purposes The Foundation of Science Fiction Success pm FSF Oct 54 Poem Franchise ss If Aug 55 Bad one Describe a society that only needs one person who votes, to decide an election It depends of the calculations of a computer Gimmicks Three The Brazen Locked Room ss FSF Nov 56 Worth reading Mix between science fiction and the devil Kid Stuff ss Beyond Fantasy Fiction Sep 53 Fantasy one, than science fiction I didn t like it The Watery Place ss Satellite Oct 56 It supose to be funny, maybe in the 50 s Not for me, kind of stupid tale about the first contact with venusians Living Space ss Science Fiction Stories May 56 Parallel universes I like it, i found it original and entertaining The Message vi FSF Feb 56 Time travelling A bad one Satisfaction Guaranteed Susan Calvin Robot ss Amazing Apr 51 Not so interesting The social and work relationship between a housekeeper and a robot Hell Fire vi Fantastic Universe May 56 Ridiculous More devil and science The Last Trump ss Fantastic Universe Jun 55 No, this is the best one for sure About the judgement day The Fun They Had ss The Boys and Girls Page Dec 1 51 FSF Feb 54 Ridiculous but funny How they imagine education with computers in the 50 s Jokester ss Infinity Science Fiction Dec 56 Interesting, at least for the original idea, about the origin of humor The Immortal Bard vi Universe May 54 More time travelling Really bad one, it tries to be funny Someday ss Infinity Science Fiction Aug 56 Too naive for me About the reading capacity or the way to consume contents in the future The Author s Ordeal pm Science Fiction Quarterly May 57 Kind of poem Dreaming Is a Private Thing ss FSF Dec 55 Dreams as entretaing and commercial product I consider it original.
