We wish we’d seen this post about Isaac Asimov a week earlier, on National Limerick Day.
But then again, though it turns out Asimov — known widely for his science and sci-fi work — wrote limericks, they aren’t exactly for everyone.
His collection, appropriately enough, is titled Lecherous Limericks.
For a sampling of the definitely not-safe-for-work poems, head over to Literary Hub. (We’ll keep our site clean.)
Asimov wrote or edited about 500 works of fiction and nonfiction; the most famous include I, Robot, the Foundation series, The Gods Themselves (winner of the Hugo and Nebula Awards), and the short story “Nightfall,” considered one of the greatest science-fiction short stories.
