Asimov’s Empire, Asimov’s Wall | Public Books

quote [ Asimov’s biographer Michael White quotes “a friend’s wife” who was pinched at a party: “God, Asimov, why do you always do that? It is extremely painful and besides, don’t you realize, it’s very degrading.” ]

Insecurity leading to gross power abuse? Hm.

That sucks. I was a huge Asimov fan back in the day, but I guess it's that thing about never meeting your heroes.

I hadn’t heard this before, but I got a dirty old man vibe from his later books.

what male sci-fi writer didn't give you a dirty old man vibe?

Not shocked. As they say in the article, a product of his times. But that doesn't make it right.
