Read full description of the books Foundation's Friends:This festschrift proves that Asimov stands so far above most other writers as to inhabit another plane of existence. Very few of these stories were any good. I found "Strip-runner" by Pamela Sargent very good."Trantor Falls" by Harry Turtledove, "Plato's Cave" by Poul Anderson, and "Reunion at the Mile-High" by Frederick Pohl were also good. Contrary to what others have stated, I found Orson Scott Card's story pretty poor. It dragged on and on hammering the same points. I just finished the story a few minutes before starting this review and I had to refresh my memory as to the characters' names. I haven't liked what I have heard about Card, and now I am certainly not going to try his books. It wasn't necessarily worse than other titles in this book but because his fame is so great, I expected more than some of the other writers. Dilemma by Connie Wills was excellent! I'll have to look up her books.
I give the writers here credit for wanting to participate in honoring Asimov. But a lot of the writing was simply poor. I think this volume shows that no one has taken Asimov's place in the Science Fiction genre, or ever will. Asimov has a quick chapter at the end thanking people for doing this for him. As brief as it was and certainly not excellent writing....basically a long thank you note...it was better writing than some of the stories in here.
