Nightfall has been voted the best science fiction short story of all time. The expanded novel is a great study of the clash between religion and science.

"Nightfall" was a terrific short story, written in 1941 by Isaac Asimov. The action happens during a single evening on a world surrounded by five suns, no part of which was ever in darkness. This novel, written in 1990 by Asimov and Robert Silverberg, is an expansion of the short story.

The first two sections, "Twilight" and "Nightfall," flesh out the short story into several months. The third section, "Daybreak," tells about what happens during the weeks afterwards.

If you are a fan of science fiction, you already know and love the two authors. This is an excellent collaboration!

Another library copy, but in readable shape.
