Isaac Asimov Books

If you’re a fan of Isaac Asimov’s books, or are looking to try them, or just love Science Fiction, then you’re reading the right post! Here are our a few favorite Isaac Asimov books, as well as a complete list of his more than 500 books (a lot of books, right?!).

Our Favorite Isaac Asimov Book

I, Robot

One of Isaac Asimov’s most popular books, I, Robot is a collection of short stories featuring robots. Robot Asimov actually coined the term “robotics” and in this book introduces the Three Laws of Robotics that are referenced in later books. This book is also a good lead-in to the Robots series, which is both Science fiction and mystery and centers around a human detective, Elijah Bailey, and his robot partner, R. Daneel Olivaw. Chronologically, the Robots series comes before the Galactic Empire and the Foundation series, so it’s a great place to start.


This book kicks off the Foundation series, another fan favorite. The Galactic Empire is dying. But only Hari Seldon, creator of the revolutionary science of psychohistory, can see into the future, to a dark age of ignorance, barbarism, and warfare that will last thirty thousand years. To preserve knowledge and save mankind, Seldon gathers the best minds in the Empire and brings them to a bleak planet at the edge of the Galaxy. He calls his sanctuary the Foundation.

But soon the fledgling Foundation finds itself at the mercy of corrupt warlords. Mankind’s last best hope is faced with an agonizing choice: submit to the barbarians and be overrun—or fight them and be destroyed.

The Gods Themselves

Isaac Asimov said this was his favorite science fiction novel he wrote. This one is unique from his other books because it has aliens. In this book, humanity gains a limitless energy source from a parallel universe. However, it comes at a terrifying cost that few are aware of: the eventual destruction of the Earth and Sun.

The Last Question

In this short story, am AI tries to answer the question “how can the net amount of entropy of the universe be massively decreased?”
