Asimov's Galaxy

(1988)
Reflections on Science Fiction
A non fiction book by

 
Publisher's Weekly
The first issue of Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine appeared in 1976, and it continues to thrive, each issue containing an editorial by the author, 66 of which are collected here. Using science fiction as a touchstone, the essays cover a variety of topics, but of particular interest, perhaps, to the Asimov fan, are more than a dozen autobiographical pieces (most of the other articles also contain a personal anecdote). Other areas covered include ''Women and Science Fiction,'' ''Plagiarism,'' ''Pseudonyms,'' ''Magic,'' ''Magazine Covers'' and the slush pile. Asimov is never less than his usual engaging, informative self. The range and brevity of the pieces make this a charming book.
