Isaac Asimov (1920–1992) was one of the greatest science fiction writers of the 20th century. Many critics, scientists, and educators believe Asimov’s greatest talent was for popularizing or, as he called it, “translating” science for the lay reader. This online display features visuals and descriptions of some of the more than 600 books, games, audio recordings, videos, and wall charts included in the West Virginia University Libraries Asimov Collection.

"Writer and reader... who gives, who receives? Both and both. And, this is why it is always necessary to leave open spaces in a piece of work, to trust the reader to get it, to not tell everything... the empty spaces are the handholds, footholds, by which the reader climbs into the work, inserting him or herself." - Crescent Dragonwagon

What can I possibly say about this book? It's one of the best stories and most well-written books ever. Bradbury, as always, relied heavily on his reader's information to fill in the gaps, and usually, I find that sloppy writing, but with this--with this story--it works; like a haunting nightmare hovering on the edge of your memory. Ah, great stories and fantastic writing make me swoon :D
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. Perhaps the most ironic banned book situation, Fahrenheit 451 deals with the issue of censorship in a dystopian society that sends firefighters out to burn down houses discovered to have books inside. Those opposed to this book claim various reasons for banning it including profanity, portrayal of smoking and drinking, and anti-religious and anti-establishment sentiments. @pigment vehicle
