January 2, 1920 – April 6, 1992) was an American writer and professor of biochemistry at Boston University. He was known for his works of science fiction and popular science. Asimov was a prolific writer, and wrote or edited more than 500 books and an estimated 90,000 letters and postcards. His books have been published in 9 of the 10 major categories of the Dewey Decimal Classification. Asimov wrote hard science fiction and, along with Robert A. Heinlein and Arthur C. Clarke, he was considered one of the "Big Three" science fiction writers during his lifetime. Asimov's most famous work is the Foundation Series; his other major series are the Galactic Empire series and the Robot series. The Galactic Empire novels are explicitly set in earlier history of the same fictional universe as the Foundation series. Later, beginning with Foundation's Edge, he linked this distant future to the Robot and Spacer stories, creating a unified "future history" for his stories much like those pioneered by Robert A. Heinlein and previously produced by Cordwainer Smith and Poul Anderson."

The text pages are generally clean and bright, though there are occasional finger marks and some toning to the edges of the pages. The endpapers are noticeably toned. "Gieske’s book is not a literary gem. It features purple prose, stilted character development and a number of highly improbable events. And yet, it provides an insight into how utopias have come into common discussion and also what sort of issues might have constituted an ideal world at the dawn of World War II. At the outset of the book, the world’s moguls come together to transform Bermuda into Utopia. There, the great scientists of the world, unfettered by outside influences, work to rid the world of its problems. One significant early invention is a gigantic road-paving machine destined to elevate China out of poverty. The protagonist of the story is David Haldane, a decent but underappreciated telephone lineman. He dreams of joining the ranks of Utopians and perfecting his pet project, a much improved television."
