|Isaac Asimov||Naked Sun (Robot)||The electrifying sequel to Caves of Steel in which Elijah Baley is once more teemed up with R. Daneel. The two must travel to Solaria, where no human has gone in over a thousand years! Reacting in fear against the technological superiority of the Outer Worlds, the people of Earth have hidden themselves in vast underground cities, nursing a hatred for Spacers. The fifty Outer Worlds of the Spacers together are home to fewer people than planet Earth. And home to many, many more robots. Earthmen hate Spacer robots, too...But Baley doesn't. He once had a robot partner, R. Daneel- and when the authorities of the planet Solaria request terrestrial assistance in investigating a murder, Baley is once again teamed with Daneel. He is the first Earthman in a millennium to travel to the Outer Worlds...and he must endure the glare of a sun far more deadly than Earth's.||Paperback|

|Isaac Asimov||The Gods Themselves||Winner of the Hugo Award and Nebula Award.
Review by Bill Johnston (PSSFS):
A nifty book about an alien race and the energy source which causes us to contact them. Despite all the abuse Asimov takes (especially for his later stories), I think he actually did deserve the token award he was given for this book.||Hardcover|

|Isaac Asimov (ed.), Barry B. Longyear, George R. R. Martin||The Hugo Winners, Volume 5 (1980 - 1982)||This anthology contains a number of fine storiesvirtually a given with a volume of Hugo winners. Included are the honored tales from 1980, '81 and '82, among them twoeach by Gordon R. Dickson and George R. R. Martin, and one each by Barry Longyear, Clifford D. Simak, Poul Anderson, Roger Zelazny and John Varley, all (with the exception of Longyear) Hugo winners in previous years as well. Particularly fine are Varley's little shocker "The Pusher," which considers the dilemma of the astronaut, who ages slowy during space travel, in creating a long-term relationship with an Earth-bound lover; Longyear's "Enemy Mine" (recently made into a film), which casts an Earthman and an alien into a hostile environment and traces their relationship from antagonism through mutual dependence, friendship and love; and Martin's spectacularly effective horror story about a sadistic man whose otherworldly insect-like pets escape from their tank and turn his home into a charnel house.

|Isaac Asimov (ed.)||The New Hugo Winners, Vol. 2||YA-- An engrossing collection of short stories, novellas, and novelettes that have been recipients of the Hugo Award between 1986-1988. Students seeking prehistory with a modern twist should delight in Robert Silverberg's ``Gilgamesh in the Outback,'' charactered by heroes of old and engaged in the never-ending quest for permanent friendship. Frederik Pohl offers science-fiction fans a choice of endings for his post-holocaust survival story. Although each selection involves interaction with other worlds, their premises differ. This is a thought-provoking anthology that would make an excellent read-aloud and a fine introduction to fiction, science fiction, and fantasy. The appendix includes all of the Hugo winners between 1953-1991.

|Janet Asimov, Isaac Asimov||Norby and the Oldest Dragon||Grade 3-5 --Norby's many fans will enjoy this latest additon to the popular series. Cadet Jeff Wells is steamed that he must leave the Space Academy to visit the planet Jamyn for the Grand Dragon's birthday celebration. His bad mood lasts until he is sent to find the Grand Dragon's mother and bring her to the party. The Dowager Dragon, Jeff, his brother, Fargo, and Norby are soon plunged into adventure when a mysterious vapor surrounds the planet, threatening all life on Jamyn.

|Janet Asimov||Mind Transfer||Using the background of husband Isaac's classic robot stories of the '40s and '50s, Janet Asimov considers the possibilities and problems of the title technique: imprinting human minds on robot brains to give the aging and ill a second life. Naturally, there is a backlash, the rabid conservative movement called biofundamentalism. The novel is structured around the life, death and subsequent robotic existence of Adam Durant, who is born into a dynasty torn between "bioeffers" and pioneering roboticists. In a story crowded with incident (settling another star system, terrorist bombings, hyperdrive innovations, alien encounters), the interesting question of a robotic culture that doesn't imitate its human parent is not developed. Also appealing as an idea is the outlined family chronicle with robots as relatives, but the bland characters and rushed, chaotic plot weaken its impact.
