Oh, Asimov, is that what this poll is about? No wonder I was lost. I read some Asimov short stories once, and meh. Nothing about them inspired me to read any of his longer works. His character development was flat, and his handling of technology was cheesy and unrealistic on a level that reminded me of Hana-Barbara cartoons (not the Jetsons specifically, just Hana-Barbara cartoons in general). The cheesy handling of technology might not be such a big deal except for the fact that his stories were mostly *about* the technology, so it kind of gets in the reader's face. I was thoroughly unimpressed. Maybe I'm just picky.
