How is it possible for one man to be so clever so damn often? How many books did this guy write? Every single one of his books has some sort of intellectual information-based twist at the end. Of course, the "truth" is probably what Asimov started with when writing his books, working from the beginning to deliberately obfuscate it with red herrings and small hints that don't mean much until the end. Sometimes the hints don't mean much until a later novel! If there is one quality that I look for in a series, it is inter-book relationships. I enjoy coming across passages that illuminate goings-on in previous books.
