His first novel, Pebble, which deals with nuclear power and time travel, predated the publication of his famous Foundation in book form by one year. At the time of his death, the Russian-born Asimov had become one of the most prolific writers in history, having written or edited over 550 books. From the Robert and Diane Yaspan Collection.
