Finished my little excursion into The Old Days with Robots of Dawn... I remain impressed with the relatively-smooth way Asimov picked up the threads of the first two novels [and the earlier stories] to tie up Elijah's story and set the stage for the joining of Robots and Foundation to come. It seems to me he must have sketched out the general plan pretty early on when he began writing novels again. Other than the shock of having him write about sex lol, it's a pretty seamless transition...
A lot of his generation of SF writers constantly insist on interjecting sex. I call it "dirty old man syndrome".
You get hurt, hurt 'em back. You get killed, walk it off.
