Buy Jupiter and Other Stories

Speculative fiction by Isaac Asimov


Buy Jupiter and Other Stories is a 1975 collection of short stories by American writer Isaac Asimov. Each story is introduced by a short account of how it came to be written and what was happening in Asimov's life at the time, and follows on from where The Early Asimov left off. In the introduction, Asimov explains that his objective is to tell enough of his autobiography in his short story collections so that his editors will stop asking him to write an actual autobiography.
The book includes the following stories:
"Darwinian Pool Room"
"Day of the Hunters"
"Shah Guido G."
"Button, Button"
