Isaac Asimov

( 1920-1992 )

Born In Russia, he came to the U.S. in 1923 to become a Sci-Fi Icon. Has he envisioned what might be our 'world wide web future' in his 1954 story: "The Caves of Steel"? His robots, their technology, and their laws are classic as is the "Foundation" series.--Lee Skidmore
