Told with great fun and in the inimitable Asimov style, AZAZEL makes for hours of pure impish delight. Isaac Asimov, renowned master of science fiction, now turns his fanciful pen and limitless imagination to fantasy and gives us a captivating collection of eighteen short tales sure to enchant all admirers of fine fantasy and the legions of Asimov fans alike. Meet Azazel, a two~centimeter~tall, fiery red imp possessed with an impetuous personality and marvelous magical powers. Able to be summoned at will only by George Bitternut, an eccentric linguist who has stumbled upon the ancient incantations for calling forth demons and sprites, Azazel will not permit his wondrous wizardry to be used for George's personal gain. He will, however, cast his spells for George's friends when they are in need. The only problem is, this otherworldly miracle worker has little understanding of earthly quirks and human foibles, and his well~intentioned tamperings invariably lead to hilarious and unexpected chaos. Seventeen of the tales in AZAZEL first appeared in The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction and Isaac Asimovs Science Fiction Magazine(One Night of Song~ The Smile That Loses~ To the Victor~The Dim Rumble~ Saving Humanity~ A Matter of Principle~ The Evil Drink Does~ Writing Time~ Dashing Through the Snow~Logic is Logic~He Travels the Fastest~The Eye of the Beholder~More Things in Heaven and Earth~The Mind's Construction~The Fights of Spring~Galatea~Flight of Fancy) The opening story in the collection, "The Two~Centimeter Demon," was written expressly for this book.
