Asimov’s Campzna, published inis a collection of 14 short stories by Isaac Asimov, all of them science fiction mysteries although, as Asimov admits in the introduction, some are only borderline. The stories were all originally published in magazines between and Four stories in the collection feature the character of Wendell Urth, who is a leading extra-terrologist an expert on alien worlds and life originating on them.
Urth is eccentric in that he has a phobia of all mech. Urth is eccentric in that he has a phobia of all mechanical asikov of transport an exaggeration of Asimov’s own aversion to flying.
Physically Urth resembles Norbert Wiener. He appears in the stories when he is consulted by an agent of the Terrestrial Bureau of Investigation, H. Seton Davenport, in campanaa which have him baffled – a parallel with the way in which Inspector Lestrade consults Sherlock Holmes.
In a fifth story in the collection, The Dust of Death, Asimov shows Davenport a generosity that Conan Doyle never extended to Lestrade in demonstrating the former’s ability to solve a case for himself without outside assistance.

A very recent review on this site by Nandakishore on a work by Agatha Christie explains the dilemma in trying to review mysteries.
It is something like trying to explain how an ingenious magic trick works for once the explanation is done, the audience feels oh, so was that just it? This is also the reason why I love armniosa for you never know what awaits you at the end of the tale. Asimov in this slim volume o A very recent review on this site by Nandakishore on a work by Agatha Christie explains the dilemma in trying to review mysteries.
Asimov in this slim volume offers tales in this huge family tree set in futuristic cityscapes. The stories are more or less very simple in their structure. In the gap of a good ten or 15 pages, the whole affair reaches a conclusion which Asimov makes us believe is a logical one.
There are no convoluted plots nor larger-than-life characters for even in space, Asimov’s ka retain an earthly touch. Two characters tend to repeat through most of the stories. The first is an official investigator H. Seton Davenport who while being pragmatic and duty bound cannot help but being a baffled albeit pale shade of Dr. The eccentric detective caricature here is bestowed upon Dr.
Wendell Urth who is quite a unique character sketch. There is also another reason why I liked this duo for they are never interested in each other’s company beyond the lifetime of the mystery, a purely professional working arrangement is how they proceed. To add to this is the way the mysteries are solved for all these seemingly impossible knots are untied in the cluttered setting of Dr.
A solid collection of tales but nothing unexpected in the plot lines in terms of twists. As reliable as morning coffee is your man Isaac Asimov! Apr 06, Manny rated it really liked it Shelves: Asimov enjoyed showing off his versatility, and even though he’s best known for his SF and popular science, he could do other things too.
In particular, he was surprisingly competent at mysteries. Maybe he should have written more of them. This book collects together his best mystery short stories, the greater part of which have an SF theme.
They often hinge on a clever piece of word-play. Asimov loved jeux de motsand had a tendency to be a little too silly with them, but here he gets it right; Asimov enjoyed showing off his versatility, and even though he’s best known for his SF and popular science, he could do other things too.

It’s a relativistic baseball rather than a relativistic billiard ball, but same difference. Asimov is completely wrong. The ball wouldn’t just have drilled a neat hole through Bloom’s heart; it’d have created the equivalent of a substantial nuclear explosion, killing everyone for a mile around.
Tut tut, Doctor Asimov.
Asimov’s Mysteries by Isaac Asimov
View all 4 comments. Sep 10, Eliot rated it really liked it. Typical Asimov, which is only a good thing.
Oh I enjoyed it a lot! Asimov is really good, the mysteries are a lot of fun, and some are even very impressive.
There’s murders and regular mysteries. And I ended up liking Urth quite a lot. But as far as Asimov stories go, I prefer his Robot stories. Sep 24, Sean Randall rated it liked it.
I’d read some of these before and enjoyed some of them anew. This collection ends with a few really good stories but quite a few are mediocre which drags down my rating of this book. Anyone who says Asimov can’t write should give these a go and it might change their mind.
Of the stories contained herein, only a few are of the kind that you, as the reader, try to guess “who done it” before it’s revealed at the end.
Doing so will require quite a deep knowledge of scientific and ast This collection ends with a few really good stories but quite a few are mediocre which drags down my rating of this book.
Doing so will require quite a deep knowledge of scientific and astronomical facts, that went beyond the limits of my knowledge for sure. Others were more of the kind that the reader knows “who done it” from the outset and then follows how they were found out. Still others explore intriguing scientific discoveries which involve someone being murdered but only the reader knows when to all else it appears like an accident. A common theme throughout illustrates the politics, rivalry and egotism that the scientific establishment is riddled with if Asimov is to be believed.
He certainly gives the impression that he is very knowledgeable about science and what it’s like being a scientist. Worth reading for the gems but there’s a few duffers to be glossed over although a better knowledge of the science involved might improve their reading. Pero en general me han gustado mucho, sobre todo por los aportes del propio Asimov al principio o al final de cada relato. Todo lo que puedo decir es: There’s no standout stories in this collection from Asimov.
They are connected and were the most fun read of the collection. Sep 23, Leo Costales rated it it was amazing. Clever page turning compilation of Asimov science fiction mystery short stories.
A worthwhile read for fans of the master. I don’t know asimof the Professor Urth stories were ever expanded on, but I found them very clever.
Campans Urth is a veritable 23rd century Sherlock Holmes, with a phobia of travel to boot. Asimov siempre me ha parecido un escrito algo vanidoso, se cree el mejor que hay Apr 04, Jack Tyler rated it really liked it. This is an anthology of thirteen mysteries with a science-fiction theme first published in by one of the giants of the 20th Century.
Here’s what I thought of it: When my living quarters were flooded in the El Nino event of the early s, pretty much everything on the floor or on bottom shelves was damaged beyond recognition or destroyed outright.
I went to the effort to salvage two books. This was one of them. It’s still out there, and still an entertaining read. First, let me excerpt from This is an anthology of thirteen mysteries with a science-fiction theme first published in by one of campxna giants of the 20th Century.
First, let me excerpt from the introduction in order to bring you in on what The Master’s thoughts were on blending sci-fi and mystery: Surely this is unexpected. One would think that science fiction would blend easily with the mystery. Science itself is so nearly a mystery and the research scientist so nearly a Sherlock Holmes.
