Don Swaim Interviews

Audio Interview with Isaac Asimov

Issac Asimov

Isaac Asimov, author of Foundation, I, Robot, The Naked Sun, and hundreds of other books of fiction and nonfiction, remembers the "Golden Age" of science fiction, the early Astounding Science Fiction magazine, and writing for a penny a word in this 1987 interview with Don Swaim. Asimov talks about his method of writing as much as he can, aiming for clarity in style, and how science fiction changed after World War II and changed again in the 1960s and 1970s.
