THE WINDS OF CHANGE AND OTHER STORIES. Garden City: Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1983. Octavo, cloth-backed boards. First edition. Collects twenty-one stories, all but two first published between 1976 and 1982. "Belief" and "Ideas Die Hard," both first published in the 1950s, somehow escaped publication in an earlier Asimov single-author story collection, so he included them here. The stories are "something of a return to Asimov's older style. Whimsical, clever, liberal, and the stories tend to feature absent-minded academics and to end with punch lines." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. 423. A fine copy in fine dust jacket with just a touch of color fade to spine panel. A lovely copy. (#168716).
First edition so stated on copyright page.
