Description

This article is from the Isaac Asimov FAQ, by Edward J. Seiler ejseiler@earthlink.net and John H. Jenkins jenkins@mac.com with numerous contributions by others.

2.7 What are the titles of Isaac Asimov's autobiographies? Where can I get them?

a year later. They are currently out of print, and thus your best bet for
finding them is to check used book stores, science fiction conventions,

I. Asimov: A Memoir was published by Doubleday in March 1994, and covers
his entire life, written in 166 brief chapters arranged in roughly
chronological order.

Yours, Isaac Asimov , a collection of excerpts from letters he had
written over the years, edited by his brother Stan and published by
Doubleday in October 1995, also provides a great insight into Asimov's
personal and professional life.

In addition, the three Opus books ( Opus 100 , Opus 200 , and
Opus 300 ), The Early Asimov , Before the Golden Age , and
Asimov Laughs Again contain substantial autobiographical material, and
Asimov talks a great deal about himself and his life in many of his other

Fantasy and Science Fiction and his editorials in Isaac Asimov's Science
Fiction Magazine (which has since been renamed Asimov's Science Fiction.
