Review by JohnFair
Published four years after Asimov's death, this book contains a number of previously unpublished stories and articles about the art of writing science fiction and the field of science fiction. Some of the stories are very good - particularly the title piece, but some are slightly less impressive and a reminder of why the pun is considered the lowest form of humour :-)
