I loved our Halloween blog challenge last year.  I’d like to invite you all to play again.  Paint, draw, write anything Halloweeny.  It doesn’t have to be scary.  Last year I did cutsy.  Remember Ryan’s portrait of us?  I have a copy handy if any of you have forgotten.    It was so fun!  I have flies buzzing around my head.  he he

Born to Jews in the early days of the RSFSR, there are no accurate records, however, and it is possible that he may have been born as early as October 4, 1919.

By March 18, 1941, Isaac Asimov had written thirty-one stories, sold seventeen, and fourteen had been published. At that time, he considered himself nothing more than a third-rate writer. That evening, he sat down to write his thirty-second story, based on an idea suggested by Astounding editor John W. Campbell the day before. By April 8, he finished the story, titled “Nightfall”, and on April 9 he took it to Campbell. Two days later, he received this letter from Campbell, and the history of science fiction was changed forever.   More….
