Library Journal - Library Journal
In the introduction to one of these 17 essays, Asimov writes: ``I am ready to discuss anything, however old hat it might seem to a reasonably sophisticated readership, simply because I am confident I can present it with an interesting slant.'' And so he can in his 23rd collection of essays, reprinted from issues of the Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction published between November 1984 and March 1986. Chemistry is the overall theme tying at least 13 of these pieces together. Asimov traces historically the chemical research which filled gaps in the periodic table, explains the biology of vitamins, discusses collisions between atomic particles taking place in the not-so-empty vacuum of outer space, and more. Suggested for public and high school popular science collections. Laurie Tynan, Huntingdon Cty. Lib., Pa.
