I am glad to find someone who likes him as much as me. His where basically the first sci-fi books that I ever read. I think the very first was 2001 followed by another one of clarkes. Then i read foundation followed by the next four in the series. From then i started reading lots of sci-fi.
Ok here are books i read of asimov, what am i missing:

foundation Series (x7) and have the new foundation books my brin,beford,baxter awaiting.

Nemesis
The Bicentiennial man/positronic man
The Gods Themselves
The ugly little boy

The three robot novels, caves of steel, robots of dawn and another. Also quite a few of the short stories.

What am i missing?

Getting back on topic now...

I believe that a must read of his is "The End of Eternity", this book is my favorite of his "non-series" novels.

The "other" robot novel of yours should be The Naked Sun (in between caves of steel and robots of dawn).

Re: Asimov

I've always liked to read Asimov. He writes on such a grand scale, yet he can tell a wonderful short story, too. His style was simple, more about telling a good tale instead of adorning it with a lot of flowery prose. Don't get me wrong, I like flowery prose; it's just knowing where to use it.

Re: Asimov

One of my favorites is non-SciFi: "The Tragedy Of the Moon"

Be sure to look for the short stories: "The Final Question" and the (somewhat) related "The Last Answer"

Books: The Empire series: "The Currents of Space", "The Stars, Like Dust" (my fav.), "Pebble in the Sky" and "Blind Alley".

This should keep you occupied for a while.

Happy reading!
