a Russian-born American author and professor of
biochemistry, a highly successful writer, best known
for his works of science fiction and for his popular
science books. Asimov was one of the most prolific
writers of all time, having written or edited more
than 500 books.
Asimov's most famous work is the Foundation Series;
his other major series are the Galactic Empire series
and the Robot series, both of which he later tied into
the same fictional universe as the Foundation Series
to create a unified "future history" for his stories.
The Three Laws of Robotics
1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction,
allow a human being to come to harm.
2. A robot must obey orders given to it by human beings, except where
such orders would conflict with the First Law.
3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such
protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

For my part I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream.
-- Vincent van Gogh
I had that dream again Its the dream of an unseen reality that Ive been having since I was a little girl, the dream that has always shown its strange world, making me wonder why it keeps coming back to try and deliver its indistinguishable message.
I looked up at the ceiling to see the silhouettes of the Terran species, floating and dancing about, drifting through the ceiling and walls as if they were the spirits of the dead. The strange ectoplasmic illusions usually came after the dream, as they always have.
I rubbed my eyes and then looked at my clock as the spirits faded away, 0144 hours. I sighed and got out of my bed to check my dream diary, which may help me find meaning to this vision. I opened my diary, a three ring binder, and turned

Sham.Ian made his way into the kitchen where Craig was busy doing the washing up. His sleeves rolled up to the elbows, he picked up, washed and then placed each item into the draining rack with swift and methodical precision.Sham. by Kurt-Jarram
Ian watched as he picked up the next plate, submerged it in the water, moved the sponge over it in four circular motions before placing it in the rack. He did this with the next plate, and the next, and the next.
“Always four times.” Ian muttered to himself “Always four. Even if there's not that much on the plate. Always four.”
Craig's head suddenly snapped up. He must have heard even though it was only a whisper. He turned around a smiled.
“Hey there.” he said “You're home early. Here, just let me finish this up real quick and I'll be right with you.”
Ian stepped over to the sink and looked at the clean items. A set of six high-ball glasses were set in a neat row. All turned so that the frosted measurement lines faced pe
Isaac Asimov raped by Hollywood...againI just watched the 2000 movie of Nightfall.Isaac Asimov raped by Hollywood...again by Jack-Abbott
I went in optimistically. They put the right number of suns in the sky! The movie addressed at least some of Asimov’s ideas! The story, um, made sense!...well, at least up to a point.
But congratulations, Hollywood! For the second time, you managed to completely screw up adapting one of the greatest science fiction stories ever written. What’s the matter with these people? To me it’s astonishingly simple: STICK TO THE STORY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I understand that when you’re adapting a short story into a movie, you have to pad it out. I get that. But come on! The 1988 movie had the snake princess...now this version has people with Jedi powers? WHAT?!?!?! Look, just STICK TO THE STORY!
And the thing is, Asimov even made it easy for them. By the time this version was made, Asimov and Robe
