These are often societies with very advanced technology. This is a strange, compelling and beautifully written story. Some critics, it seems, not only don't want to read hard SF, but don't want to read about it. I am not personally terribly fond of “ The Last Answer ,” for example, or “ Found! ” And I really don’t like “ Eyes Do More than See ” particularly, or “ Ideas Die Hard .” One is aware in many cases why Asimov happened to like a particular story, but that doesn’t mean that others share his estimation.
