    a fan of science fiction

    This science fiction collection is one that is for the ones that don't like long novels and like short stories and how to write science fiction. This one is good if you like to read short stories and science fiction, but if you like a series and long gripping tales you might not like this one it is all a matter of opinion

    Absolutely Wonderful!

    Ironically, even though this is one of the 'final' collections of Asimov's works, it is the first of his books that I read. It is divided into three parts. The first part has amazing short stories and the other two parts have essays about science fiction and writing science fiction. The entire book is wonderful. I read it during a vacation and I was actually more interested in reading the book than seeing the sights. Every single piece pulled me into the story. There was a good balance of seriousness and humor. Some stories were the kind you would read just for fun or a good laugh while others were more serious. Most were a little of both. The essays provided great insight about science fiction and about writing, probably because Asimov was an expert in these areas. I already liked science fiction before reading this book, but this book inspired me to become obsessed with it. Just read this book, and you'll become obsessed with Asimov and science fiction.

    Goldshines story: Part ten

    The leader of Streamclan, Dovestar, came forward. "One of our kits died from a hawk. Jaypaw was brave enough to save it, but failed and almost broke her paw. But she wears it with pride." Goldpaw looked at Jaypaw with her eyes. "Really?" She asked. "Yep." "That looks bad." Goldpaw pionted to her twisted paw. "It's alright. Like Dovestar already said, I wear it with pride." Then the leader of Marshclan came up and Dovestar step back. Oh no... Goldpaw thought. The Marshclan leader is going to say the battle! But all the Marshclan leader said was two new apprentices became warriors and now sitting vigil for the clan just like Wolfheart. The last leader came up and said that the deputy died and will appointed a new deputy at sunrise. Dovestar came up one last time. "One more announcement. Beware of three rouges with Streamclan scent. You do not want to mess around with them. Any more announcements?" All the leaders shook their head. "Then the gathering is over." Shadowstar meowed. "Come on, Jaypaw!" Two Streamclan apprentices who were unreconizable to Goldpaw urged Jaypaw. "I'm coming!" Jaypaw got up. "We might meet again, Goldpaw, also, keep a watch on those rouges." "I will." Goldpaw promised as Jaypaw padded over to her clanmates. Goldpaw got up and padded over to her clanmates. Author's note: this is not the author of Goldshine's story here. It is Jaysoar, the author of Jaysoar's story. The author asked me if I can continue the gathering for him/her because he/she ran out of ideas for the gathering. Take no credit to me. It is just a favor the author has asked me. To Nyanwolf/ author of Goldshine's story: I tried to copy what you do on your parts so it really looks like you made this instead of me. I did my best and tell everybody who read Goldshine's story up to this point that part ten is made. You can go back to making this story. May Starclan light your path...-Jaysoar
