BUY JUPITER

Panther Science Fiction paperback, 1977 reprint.
Cover illustration by Peter Jones.

"The biggest advertising sign in the solar system...Dinosaurs of the mesozoic era - armed with guns...The fall of a future Atlantis - these and many more mind-spinning delights await the reader within this latest collection of Isaac Asimov's shorter science fiction.

Never before collected into book form, the stories in Buy Jupiter span twenty-three years of Dr Asimov's writing career. Each brilliant tale comes complete with fascinating details of the circumstances in which the author wrote it. The result is an unsurpassed combination of first-rate entertainment and an intriguing look at the development of the twentieth century's greatest master of science fiction."
