Although the exact date of his birth is unknown, Asimov celebrated it on January 2. He was born in Petrovichi, Russia and came to the United States with his family at the age of 3. By the age of 5, he had taught himself how to read and at 19, he sold his first story to a science fiction magazine.

Considered one of the most prolific writers of the 20th century, Asimov wrote and edited over 500 books during his lifetime. His work covered a wide variety of topics, however, he is best remembered for his mastery of science fiction literature. Today sci-fi fans celebrate National Science Fiction Day on Asimov’s birthday.
