I always find it interesting to read the author's dedication page. Asimov's is so sweet. Anyway, I found these again, as I find many of my cool discoveries, from a library book sale. I've been a sci-fi fan as long as I can remember. Blame this one on my father as we watch the first Star Trek faithfully and had various philosophical discussions that revolved around the episodes. I really believe that 'every I needed to know I learned by watching Star Trek'. Back to Asimov...
One a my favorite dialogue quotes from Pebbles In The Sky is "Does Earth look as if it's boss of anything?"
From Foundation here is a great, but quick characterization of a minor character - It was a tall man that eventually entered, a man whose face seemed all vertical lines and so thin that one could wonder whether there was room for a smile -
So, who did Asimov dedicate Pebbles In The Sky? To My Father, Who First Introduced Me To Science Fiction.
