Argh! It's just like force-welding Macross, Mospeada etc into one long
meandering series.

In my very personal opinion, Asimov had two great contributions: the early
robot concept stories, and the concept of psychohistory (Foundation
Trilogy), all his other works are pretty forgettable. Having said that
(and reducing his life into merely two ideas), I also have to say that's
is two more than I will ever produce in my lifetime. So let me register
my admiration and appreciation also. Rest in peace, Issac!
