199 of 210 : Isaac

Everyone else called him Mr. Asimov, but she called him Uncle Isaac. A close friend of her family, I heard stories about their dinners together, laughing, her father arguing genially with him about how far one could bend science fact in the making of fiction. He always remembered her birthday.

NOW I'm jealous!

I did get to work closely with one of Joseph Campbell's students studying transpersonal psychology and thanatology.

Funny, it seems to polar opposite to Asimov, but I don't know which one I'd have preferred.

You never told me Les was related to Asimov. How?

No, not related, he was a friend of the family. She just called him uncle, the way children often do to family friends.
