Fantastic Voyage II Destination Brain

Was browsing through the stacks at my local public library this morning and noticed an Asimov novel - Fantastic Voyage II Destination Brain. According to our local Asimov scholar, SF, Asimov adapted the novel Fantastic Voyage from an existing screenplay. What about this one? Is it an Asimov original or part of another movie I haven't heard of?

Asimov wrote the book with no interference this time. He was sent a suggested outline by the studio but he did not use it.

But as is often the case with such arangements, the movie never got made.

Was it a good read, as good as the other Asimov stuff we've discussed? I was looking for some of the Hugo nominees but may go back and get it.

Re: Fantastic Voyage II Destination Brain

I have just checked our library catalogue---the only copies of Fantastic Voyage + FV II are in a basement reserve stock 1987 copies-- and nothing new since then. We have 12 libraries in our authority it's unsual not to have all asimov works and new copies?? Lots of "Foundation"

The "Foundation" and the "Robot" books are his most popular and most well-known works. But fantastic Voyage still ought to be easier to find then Asimov's non-fiction and humor ventures.

Even Foundation and Earth is harder to find then the trilogy and the two Seldon books.

Re: Fantastic Voyage II Destination Brain

I have also noticed that most bookstores are no longer stocking the entire Asimov science fiction collection. It's rare to find all the Foundation, Galactic Empire, and Robot novels anymore. I would really like to see a comprehensive boxed set of his three series' in hardcover. My paperback collection is an assortment of covers from the third and fourth paperback printings to the paperback printing in the 80's when Asimov took up the Foundation and Robot series again (the best cover imo). I also have a few without covers.

Well the movie Bicentennial Man hopefully perked some interest in Asimov's books. I Robot has made it to TV twice now. Foundation has been suggested for a movie many times but its even more stalled than Dune used to be.

I am hoping that I Robot will spark as much interest in brining Asimov's other work's to the screen as Total Recall and Blade Runner did for Phillip K. Dick.

****'s work has often been sucsessfully rendered on the silver screen . I saw a poster for yet another adaptation in the theatre the other day. It could be that PKD's stuff is just more cinimatic than Asimov's.
