What Makes a Great Science Fiction Writer?

Asimov was one of the great science fiction writes, and he had a plethora of other talents, too. This suggests that an interdisciplinary education combined with a curious and creative mind helps produce a great science fiction writer.

Although Asimov is famous for his science fiction books, his works are included in nine of the 10 major categories in the Dewey Decimal system. In history he wrote, The Greeks: A Great Adventure and  The Egyptians. In addition, he wrote The Intelligent Man’s Guide to Science, mysteries, such as, The Black Widower Series. Others include Asimov’s Guide to Shakespeare, Asimov’s Guide to the Bible, Lecherous Limericks, and Treasury of Humor.

Irrational fears are  when we fear the unfamiliar and want to stay in our comfort zones because they are happy places.We fear uncertainty,. We fear failures. Remarkably, we even fear success.

 This Robbins stunt appears to be a foolish endeavor.
