Author Stephen King tells a great story about a chance to meet his idol, science fiction writer Isaac Asimov. The teenaged King hitchhiked to a college in Maine and talked his way into a reception honoring Asimov. Summoning his courage, he walked up to the legendary author and introduced himself.
â€œMr. Asimov, youâ€™ve always been a hero of mine and Iâ€™ve always wanted to write,â€ King said.
Asimov looked at the young man with disdain.
