04:24 am: Kickstarter Game Update: Week 6
Looking back: Week 5

Game I Viewed:
404: Law Not Found
Status: 83% funded

In this game, the players are robots whose Three Laws were replaced with crazy commands, and they must do their best to carry out these new directives as they travel through space on a ship constantly bombarded with deadly threats. I am such an Isaac Asimov fan, I nearly bought this on sight just because of the reference to the Three Laws. The only thing keeping me in check at the moment is my budget. I'll continue to watch the project, though.

Do you like his non-fiction stuff as well as his fiction?

Yes! I devoured it in high school. I went through the card catalogue at the library and checked out every book I could find under his name. (Once, when I was on a school trip and we were playing one of those party games, I picked Isaac Asimov as the person I'd want to be stranded on an island with...) I even wrote him fan mail (and got a response!).

Response to your letter, squee!

Card catalogue: My family pretty much did the same with Asimov - his books (fiction and non-fiction) were a big favorite to take out at the beach library.

He was the first celebrity at whose death I felt a personal sense of loss. :-(

I remember, and I think this was the very beginning of the 90s when people still measured their computer memory with kilobytes, I got a huge laugh out of a science fiction novel that postulated a tiny electronic reader that could hold <gasp> Isaac Asimov's Guide to Everything.
