In honor of what would be the Good Doctor’s 94th birthday, we have the following book choices:
- #94 Words from History
- #188 Mars, the Red Planet
- #282 Thirteen Horrors of Halloween
- #376 Other Worlds of Isaac Asimov
- #470 Christopher Columbus: Navigator to the New World
There really isn’t much of a contest this year. What with Spirit, Opportunity, Curiosity, and the innumerable other Mars probes which have been working hard for the past decade or so, Mars, the Red Planet is definitely showing its age. Thirteen Horrors of Halloween is fine—but not in January. Christopher Columbus: Navigator to the New World—not if you’re over seven.
So that leaves Words from History and Other Worlds of Isaac Asimov. Both are good choices, but if reading a book to honor Asimov, Other Worlds of Isaac Asimov is definitely the better choice, if a bit much to do in one day. It would be almost perfect if it were an ebook.
